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 Food System: Opportunities and Challenges" with subthemes on:

  • Agricultural innovation and resource constraints
  • International trade and supply chain linkages
  • Inclusive economic growth
    • Climate change and environmental sustainability
    • Food-energy linkages
  • Food and agricultural policies
  • Policy and regulatory harmonization

Conference Format

Due to the ongoing pandemic, travel restrictions, and challenges faced with global vaccination rollout, conference organizers have decided to transition this year’s conference to a virtual format.

The conference is structured with the intent of maximizing discussion and the exchange of ideas among researchers. Speakers will be asked to discuss the highlights and implications of their work with a dedicated amount of time devoted to discussion. Breakout session presenters (unless otherwise noted in the program) are allotted 20 minutes for presentation, followed by 10 for discussion.

The conference program, including connection details, will be posted in early June.
