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


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

ETSG 2009 is being hosted by the Faculty of Economics of the University of Rome "Tor Vergata". Please give a look at their webpage  for more information on the venue.

Prize for best paper on Heterogeneous Firms and Trade Policy
We are very pleased to announce that the Chair Jacquemin of the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium) will award a prize also at the ETSG 2009 in Rome. This year the prize will be for the best paper in the domain of "Heterogeneous Firms and Trade Policy". This prize amounts to 1000
. All full papers (submitted by the deadline of 14 August to dealing with issues regarding trade policies and heterogenous firms will be considered for the prize. The prize will be presented during the ETSG Conference by Professor Hylke Vandenbussche.

Prize awarded by the WTO
We are very pleased to announce that the WTO will also award a prize at the ETSG 2009 in Rome. More details are available from the WTO website.

Brixen Workshop in International Trade and Finance
The first edition of the Brixen Workshop on International Trade and Finance will be held in Bressanone/Brixen right after the ETSG conference. More details are available here.

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 or CD-ROM. 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.

Please remember that all participants, regardless of whether they present papers, will be required to pay a fee for registration in Rome. This has been set at 60. We apologize but we had to increase the fee by €10 with respect to what previously announced. This is an emergency measure in order to cope with an ever-larger conference. Still, notice that this is only a fraction of the per capita cost, but will help in keeping ETSG conferences viable. 

The conference fee can be paid at the conference venue by cash (please be aware that credit cards are not accepted and that there is no cash machine at the conference venue) or it can be paid in advance by money transfer. The bank account is:

Fondazione Manlio Masi
