The Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD) is pleased to announce the 14th BREAD conference will be hosted by the University of Chicago on Friday September 26 - Saturday September 27, 2008. You are invited to submit a paper for the conference. The deadline for submissions is July 27, 2008. Please submit your papers by sending an email with your paper as an attachment to BREAD.Conf@gmail.com.
All papers presented at the conference will be selected through this open submissions process. Please note that we will have time for only a very small number of presentations. The conference lasts about a day and a half, there are no parallel sessions, and we allow ample time for discussion of the research. The program will be chosen by Marianne Bertrand and Chang-Tai Hsieh. For all enquiries about registration, travel and accommodation, please send an email to Christine at BREAD@duke.edu.
