The Rimini Conference in Economics and Finance (RCEF) is a biennial conference series assembling a group of leading economists to present and discuss their work at the cutting edge of economic research. The conference will be held on the campus of Wilfrid Laurier University, with a welcoming reception and plenary address on the evening of September 16 at the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI).

The conference alternates between Italy and Canada, but with a different focus each time. While papers related to the four topics of innovation, growth, governance and development and their interrelationships are of particular interest to the organizers, we invite papers in other areas of economics, including monetary and fiscal policies, experimental economics, business cycles analysis, international trade and finance, money and banking, public economics, public finance, general equilibrium, game theory, environmental economics, industrial organization, labour economics, health economics, econometrics and quantitative methods.

The conference is organized by Canadian and Italian economists under the sponsorship of the Rimini Centre for Economic Analysis (RCEA). CIGI's Malcolm D. Knight is a plenary speaker.
