11th Australasian workshop on econometrics and health economics

20-22 April 2022

This workshop provides a forum for the development and dissemination of applications of econometrics and other quantitative approaches in health economics. The workshop will follow the format of the long-running European workshops on Econometrics and Health Economics.
The program consists of up to fourteen papers. Each paper is allocated one hour, which is made up of a presentation by the author (35 mins), followed by a response from a nominated discussant (10 mins) and general discussion (10 mins). Presentations by doctoral students and early career researchers are encouraged. The number of participants is limited to 30. Workshop participants will be expected to attend the whole of the meeting and play a role as either author, discussant or chair.


The workshop will be face-to-face subject to COVID-19 restrictions. International flights to Australia have resumed, but we advise those located overseas to check carefully entry requirements and any delays with obtaining visas, including quarantine requirements (though as at November 2021 there are no requirements to quarantine if you are fully vaccinated and test negative). Attendees will likely need to be fully vaccinated for easier travel to and from Australia.

The workshop commences at lunchtime on Wednesday 20th April and concludes in the afternoon on Friday 22nd April 2022.

Submission of Papers

Please submit a full draft of the paper OR a 1000-word (minimum) abstract. If sending an abstract, it should include details of the aims, the econometric methods used, and results. Results should be presented even if they are preliminary. Abstracts containing no results will be less likely to be accepted. Abstracts and papers will be judged primarily on the quality of their econometrics content. We strongly encourage presentation and discussion of work in progress, so the paper should not have been submitted to a journal at the time of the conference. Electronic submission of papers is required and can be uploaded on the registration page.

Notification of Acceptance

Decisions on accepted papers/abstracts will be sent to authors by Friday 28 January 2022.
