Digital economics
30 June -1 July 2023


Elias Carroni - Università di Bologna

Leonardo Madio - Università di Padova

Dimitri Paolini - Università di Sassari

Michelangelo Rossi - Télécom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris

Keynote speaker
Marc Bourreau, Télécom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris

The Digital  economics session mainly focuses  on the economic analysis (theoretical or empirical) of digital markets with particular emphasis on:

  • policy issues (antitrust and regulation) related to digital platforms and social media;

  •  strategic behavior of firms operating in these markets;

  • use of big data and artificial intelligence as strategic tools  for firms to compete.

The three main themes above are motivated by the challenges that policymakers face when dealing with the specificity of digital markets and by the need of an economic understanding (theoretical and empirical) of the driving forces and welfare consequences of firms strategies in the digital era.

Economic history
1 July


Paolo Di Martino - Università di Torino

Giulia Mancini - Università di Sassari

Alessandro Nuvolari - Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna

Keynote speaker
Michelangelo Vasta, Università di Siena.

The relationship between economic history and economics has gone through phases of closeness
and separation – and rough patches, at times. The aim of this meeting is to present and discuss state-of-the-art works in economic history that are able to highlight the complementarities between the two disciplines, and contribute to the cross-fertilisation of the two fields. In the spirit of showcasing the span of topics and methods in economic history, the organisers welcome proposals on any historical period and geographical area, and espousing any approach, from “traditional” economic history, to cliometrics and historical economics. Authors are encouraged to submit a full paper or a long abstract (about 500 words, 3 to 5 keywords).

The meeting is supported by ASE (Associazione per la Storia Economica).

Political economy
3-4 July


Matteo Gamalerio - Universitat de Barcelona

Massimo Morelli - Università Bocconi

Keynote speaker
James Fearon, Stanford University

This year the focus will be on empirical, theoretical, positive, and normative analyses of institutional reforms. Such choice is motivated by the momentum gained by the instances for institutional reforms in conjunction with the post covid next-generation EU resilience project and the widespread worries related to climate change and geopolitical instability. More generally, works on positive or normative analyses of institutions will be considered, as well as research on individual behavior if relevant to the analysis of institutional reforms.

The Corporate Finance and Financial Intermediation meeting at the 12th IBEO Workshop is an event designed for researchers working on banking and finance topics. In corporate finance, we welcome contributions to the firm's interactions with its stakeholders, the design of its organizational structure, compensation and incentive mechanisms, corporate governance, the management of capital, and the measurement and implementation of ESG mandates. In financial intermediation, we encourage contributions on the role of banking and non-banking financial institutions, the micro and macro transmission mechanisms of financial shocks and policies, the financing of small- and medium-sized enterprises, and the interaction between fintech and traditional financial intermediation. Both theoretical (micro and macro) and empirical contributions are welcome.
