COVID-19

March 24, 2020 - After much deliberation, the conference organizers have decided that this year’s GTAP Conference cannot safely be held in Tokyo in June due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are deeply appreciative of our local host, the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), and hope to be able to hold a GTAP event in Tokyo in the future. Although we will not hold a physical, face-to-face event, we are planning to host the conference online, using a similar presentation structure and maintaining the same June 17-19 dates. Since presenters span the globe, we will target concurrent sessions running from approximately 06:00-12:00 (e.g. New York, i.e. UTC/GMT-4), 12:00-18:00 (e.g. Berlin, i.e. UTC/GMT +1), and 18:00-24:00 (e.g. Beijing, UTC/GMT +8). As we finalize details, they will be posted on this page. We’re saddened that we won’t be able to physically meet in June as we understand how invaluable the in-person networking during the conference is; however, we are excited to push forward with the online format and hope you will join us online!

Conference Background
The goal of the conference is to promote the exchange of ideas among economists conducting quantitative analysis of global economic issues. Particular emphasis will be placed on applied general equilibrium methods, data, and application. Related theoretical and applied work is also welcome.

A global network of individuals and institutions conducting economy-wide analysis of trade, resource, and environmental policy issues has emerged. Thousands of these researchers now use a common data base, supplied by the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP). The project is coordinated by the Center for Global Trade Analysis at Purdue University with the support of a consortium of national and international agencies. The GTAP Data Base is a key input into most of the contemporary applied general equilibrium (AGE) analysis of global economic issues. Participants are given the opportunity to present their work, interact with other professionals in the field, and learn about the most recent developments in global economic analysis.

The overall theme of the conference is "Global Economic Analysis Beyond 2020" with subthemes on:
  • Achievements in SDGs
  • Challenges of regional integration and globalization
  • Income distribution impact of economic policy
  • Globally coordinated common tools of economic analyses
Conference Format

The conference is structured with the intent of maximizing discussion and the exchange of ideas among researchers. Sessions involve the presentation of invited and/or contributed papers. On the basis of submitted abstracts, the Center for Global Trade Analysis selects papers eligible for presentation at the conference. Speakers will be asked to discuss the highlights and implications of their work with a dedicated amount of time also being devoted to questions and discussion. All presentations are allotted 30 minutes, in which the first 20 is devoted to presentation and the remaining 10 to discussion.

The presentation schedule, including links to the online sessions, will be finalized and distributed in early June. Please note that scheduling requests cannot be accommodated this year and presenters must make themselves available to present in any timeslot as scheduling changes will not be made after the schedule is released.
