28th International Input-Output Association Conference
Development Programme 2022
Attendees to the 2022 IIOA Conference in Malaysia are invited to apply for participation in the Development Programme – an event pioneered in the past few IIOA conferences. This year, the DP will be organized in cooperation with the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET)’s Young Scholars Initiative, which will financially support the participation of highly motivated young researchers.
The scheme aims to provide young researchers with opportunities to learn individually from experienced researchers in the community, and in turn, enhancing the quality of papers. The basic idea of the scheme is that the conference organizers will assign an experienced discussant to your presentation. He/she will advise during the session, not only on the choice of methods and data, but more so about the style and structure of the paper. In addition, about how to position the study relative to the existing literature and about how to appeal to a wider range of readers, etc. You will also be given the opportunity to consult directly with your discussant on what kind of advice you are seeking.
Other conference participants will be invited to attend the Development Programme sessions as well and are encouraged to contribute to the discussions.
Each session will last a maximum of 45 minute, with the following format:
Note that the presentations should be focused on the research questions, key findings and implications rather than on the detailed deployment of methodology.
