The Rimini Conference in Economics and Finance (RCEF) is a biennial international meeting assembling a group of leading economists to present and discuss their work at the cutting edge of economic research. The previous conferences were held in Rimini, Italy (2006, 2010 and 2014), in Waterloo, Ontario (2008) and in Toronto, Ontario (2012). While papers related to the four topics of innovation, growth, governance and development and their interrelationships are of particular interest to the organizers, we invite papers in other areas of economics, including business cycles analysis, international trade, international finance, monetary and fiscal policies, public economics, public finance, finance and banking, general equilibrium, game theory, economic geography, regional development, economics of tourism, environmental economics, industrial organization, labour economics, health economics, econometrics and quantitative methods. The RCEF2016 conference is organized by RCEA jointly with Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU) and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI).
