Submissions of abstracts and proposals of organized special sessions for the 21st International Input-Output Conference at Kitakyushu are coming in in increasing numbers. Since we know that holiday period has already started or will start soon in many countries, we have decided to extend the deadline for individual submissions a bit. It has been moved from the original date of December 31, 2012, to January 15, 2013.

Four keynote speakers have been confirmed for the conference. First, Glen Peters (CICERO, Oslo) will cover an environmental topic. Second, Paul Schreyer (OECD, Paris) will speak about opportunities to link aggregated IO-data and SAMs to new microeconomic datasets. Third, the topic of former IIOA-president Masahiro Kuroda (Center for Research and Development Strategy, Japan Science and Technology Agency, Tokyo) will be related to innovation and productivity growth. Finally, Richard Baldwin (the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva) will talk about global value chains and international production networks.

This conference is sponsored by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and by the Center for Science, Technology and Innovation Policy Studies, the Kyushu University.
