Third International BIBB/IAB/ZEW Conference on "Changing Tasks - Consequences for Inequality"
The scientific committee therefore encourages contributions from all areas of labour economics and related fields focusing on the role of tasks in explaining changes in the wage and employment structure. Sociological, pedagogical or cross-disciplinary perspectives utilizing the task framework to address inequalities like unequal access to jobs or occupational positions due to educational or personal backgrounds or further aspects of inequality are expressly welcome. Moreover, the conference invites contributions using the task-based approach for clarification of related research questions, e.g. with regard to technology, changing skill demand, occupational mobility, local labour markets, trade, offshoring, the role of institutions, labour market imperfections, measuring tasks or operationalizing tasks and task groups. Both, empirical and theoretical papers are welcome.
