This years ISNE Conference takes place in Limerick on Friday 2nd October. The websites of the 2007 and 2008 versions of this are available below also to give prospective applicants a feel for the programme. The event has run since 2001 and the idea is to encourage postgraduates as well as early stage researchers in the public and private sector to present findings. The programmes in the past two years have been really excellent, involving a mix of speakers from across all the main economics institutions in Ireland and also a substantial international component. Stephen Kinsella, Martin Ryan and Dominic Trepel are the organising committee this year. Deadline for submission of abstracts is July 15th. There is no registration fee.
