About the Symposium

The fifth IZA Junior/Senior Labor Symposium will be held virtually on Friday and Saturday, October 15 and 16, 2021. We shall have 10 papers presented by authors who are between 1 and 6 years past the Ph.D. No author on any accepted paper should be outside this range of experience.
In addition to the ten authors in attendance, two senior labor economists, Daniel S. Hamermesh (Barnard College and IZA), and Maia Güell (University of Edinburgh and IZA) will be formal discussants. Each accepted author will also be asked to discuss one of the other presenter’s papers.


Please submit abstracts on papers that are NO MORE THAN SECOND DRAFTS by April 30, 2021 using our online application form. Notifications will be sent by May 31, 2021. Those authors who are invited are expected to participate in the entire two-day workshop.
