The submission deadline is March 20, 2023, and notifications of acceptance will be sent via email no later than April 3rd.

Furthermore, we encourage economists under the age of 35 to submit their manuscripts for the Best Paper Award, which comes with a prize of 200€. Single-authored papers will be given priority in the selection process.

Please note that a 40€ registration fee is required upon paper acceptance to co-finance dinner and refreshments on both days. Participants are responsible for covering their own travel and accommodation costs.

An optional course on Structural Modelling for Experimental Economics is available for YEM participants.

The course will be taught by James Tremewan (IÉSEG School of Management), on May 24 (13:00-17:00) and May 25 (9:00-13:00).

During the course, students will learn how to estimate, evaluate, and compare structural models. The techniques developed will be applied to topics such as prospect theory, heterogeneity in social preferences, level-k models, quantal response equilibria, and learning models. The course will outline the theory and illustrate the programming in R, but prior knowledge of programming is not required. Invited participants to YEM will have the option to register for the course, and participation is free of charge.
