Summary: The theme of this year's conference is Reforms. In the last two decades, many countries have reformed their economies to give market forces a greater role and to make the institutional environment more hospitable.

Possible topics include (but are not restricted to): - the political economy of institutional reform - reforms of the financial and monetary system - reforms of the trade and exchange rate regime - fiscal policy and reforms - country experiences with reform - microeconomic studies of reform with macroeconomic implications - the IMF and reforms - foreign aid and reforms Interested contributors should submit a draft paper or a two-page proposal to the Program Committee. The proposal should include the title of the paper, the author(s)' affiliation and contact information, the main questions to be examined, the most relevant literature, the intended contribution of the paper to the literature, and the possible data sets and methodology to be employed. Authors should also provide a copy of their curriculum vitae. All presenters will be reimbursed for travel expenses (economy class) and accommodation.
