CALL FOR PAPERS

IMMIGRATION’S IMPACT, IMMIGRANTS’ OUTCOMES:  NEW RESULTS USING BUSINESS AND SOCIAL DATA

QICSS International Conference 2018
October 11-12, 2018
HEC Montréal

The Québec Interuniversity Center for Social Statistics (QICSS), and the Productivity Partnership, in collaboration with the Canadian Research Data Centre Network (CRDCN) and the Center for Interuniversity Research and Analysis of Organizations (CIRANO), are inviting researchers to submit a proposal on the general topic of immigration to present at the QICSS 6th International Conference.

David Card, Professor of Economics, University of California at Berkeley, and Richard Alba, Professor of Sociology, City University of New York, will be the keynote speakers.

One goal of the conference is to highlight the research on immigration that uses the new data sets available in the Canadian Centre for Data Development and Economic Research (CDER) at Statistics Canada.

Approximately 20 papers will be selected for presentation at the conference, to ensure enough time for feedback and discussions. Economy-class travel and accommodation costs for one author of each accepted paper will be covered by the organizers. Preference will be given to quantitative work using novel data sources.

Subject matters include, but are not limited to: immigrant careers and networks, financial literacy of immigrants, firm’s decision to export and foreign-born employees, immigrant entrepreneur and businesses, comparative internal migration routes of immigrants in Canada and the United States, integration and assimilation processes, demographic changes driving changes in immigration patterns and outcomes, etc. Papers can be related to economics, sociology, demography, industrial relations, and management.

Interested authors should preferably send a paper, but abstracts are accepted — no later than April 20th — to [email protected].

Authors will be notified by May 15th whether their paper or abstract has been accepted. The notification will include further information on the conference and the deadline for submitting final papers. Conference papers will be circulated approximately two weeks before the conference (i.e., September 30th, 2018).
