The Austrian Economics Research Conference is the international, interdisciplinary meeting of the Austrian school, bringing together leading scholars doing research in this vibrant and influential intellectual tradition. The conference is hosted by the Mises Institute at its campus in Auburn, Alabama, and directed by Joseph Salerno, academic vice president of the Mises Institute and John V. Denson II Endowed Professor of economics at Auburn University.

Besides paper sessions and symposia, and five named keynote lecturers, the conference will include a special panel discussing the work of Hans-Hermann Hoppe, with comments by Hoppe.


Proposals for individual papers, complete paper sessions or symposia, and interactive workshops are encouraged. Papers should be well developed, but at a stage where they can still benefit from the group’s discussion. Preference will be given to recent papers that have not been presented at major conferences. All topics related to Austrian economics, broadly conceived, and related social-science disciplines and business disciplines such as management, strategy, and entrepreneurship are appropriate for the conference. Proposals from junior faculty and PhD students are especially encouraged. The Grant Aldrich Prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the best graduate student paper. Abstracts should be limited to 750 words. All proposals are peer reviewed by the AERC Program Committee. Additional information is here.

Submit your proposal to by January 29, 2019. Proposals after the deadline will be considered as space permits. Decisions will be communicated by February 5. Submissions for the Grant Aldrich Graduate Student Essay should be sent to by January 22 using the subject line Aldrich Prize.

Student scholarships are available.
