You are warmly invited to submit papers to the 2nd ICAR symposium. Here are the instructions for authors.

Details for Authors

All papers must be submitted by email and received by 7th of July 2008 via ICAR2008@ECON.USYD.EDU.AU. Papers must conform to the format instructions and will be subjected to formal double blind peer review. Authors will be notified of acceptance on the 25th August 2008. It is a condition of acceptance of the paper that at least one of the authors must attend the symposium (physically or virtually) and present the paper. In the spirit of inclusion authors may present only one paper.

Reviewers for ICAR 2008 will judge all manuscripts on the basis of their overall quality and their contribution to the theme.


All papers accepted for presentation following the formal competitive review process will be published in the Symposium Proceedings. These proceedings will be provided to all symposium delegates and will have an ISBN. Negotiations are ongoing regarding a journal special edition to be produced from the best papers.

Invitation to Review

We are looking for academics to help in the review process, if you are interested, please contact the symposium chair (Iain Black) on
