ETSG conferences are open to any researcher with an interest in international trade issues. Everyone can submit a paper for presentation.


16th Annual Conference
11-13 September 2014
LMU Munich and Ifo Institute


This is the sixteenth conference in what is now the largest (and friendliest) annual conference on international trade in the world.

ETSG 2014 is being hosted by by LMU Munich and Ifo Institute. Please visit their website for information about the conference venue, registration, hotels, visa regulations.

Prize awarded by the WTO
We are very pleased to announce that the WTO will award the fifth annual WTO Essay Award for Young Economists at the ETSG 2014 in Munich. More details are available on the WTO website.

Presentation Facilities
All of the rooms being used for sessions are equipped with overhead projectors and data projectors connected to personal computers. Powerpoint and Acrobat software will be installed on all machines. If you wish to use a data projector, please bring your presentation on a USB memory stick. Files can be loaded onto the computers during the breaks. Due to time pressure within sessions, it will not be possible to connect your own laptop to the projectors.

Conference schedule
Please note that the conference will begin in the early afternoon of Thursday September 11 and will end late afternoon of Saturday September 13.

Please remember that all participants, regardless of whether they present papers, will be required to pay a fee for attending the conference. This has been set at €60. Notice that this is only a fraction of the per capita cost, but will help in keeping ETSG conferences viable.

Local Organizers:
Carsten Eckel, Gabriel Felbermayr, and Lisandra Flach.
