The Association for University Business and Economic Research (AUBER) invites scholars, researchers, and practitioners to contribute to the discourse on “The Economy in Action” at the 2024 AUBER Fall Conference, Oct. 19-22 in Boise, ID. 

The Economy in Action

In a rapidly evolving global landscape, this year’s conference aims to explore dynamic and innovative approaches to understanding and analyzing economic phenomena.

We welcome papers and projects that delve into various facets of economic activity, including but not limited to macroeconomic policies, sustainable development, digital transformations, and the impact of geopolitical events on economies.

Whether focusing on theoretical frameworks or empirical studies, we encourage submissions that provide fresh insights into the practical implications of economic theories and policies. 

Join us in fostering a vibrant exchange of ideas that bridge academia and real-world economic challenges. Together, let’s explore how the economy manifests in action and its implications for the future.
