The EWACE workshop is over! Many thanks for coming. It was a great success. The EWACE received 50 percent more submissions compared the previous workshop. Acceptance rate was about 60-70 percent. No late withdrawls.

Workshop ended with guided tour in the Belvedere museum. The english guide was 40 min late. Enough time to make some fotos. Late arrival was more than compensated by a "virtuoso performance, upstaging even the paintings of Klimt!" (O'Hagan). See a foto of selected participants of the guided tour in the Belvedere museum Sep 5

Looking forward to organise the next workshop in 2016.

European Workshop on Applied Cultural Economics (EWACE)

The European Workshop on Applied Cultural Economics (EWACE) was founded in 1990 and is intended to provide a forum for the development and dissemination of applications of quantitative methods in cultural economics, as well as cultural-related applications of mathematical economics, experimental economics and other quantitative approaches (e.g. applied micro and macroeconometric approaches). Possible topics include aspects of industrial organization of cultural products and services (e.g. pricing, trade), labour market issues of artists (e.g. wages, cultural participation), spillovers and externalities of firms in the cultural setor (agglomeration) and studies on demand elasticities. Participation of interested researchers and policy makers from all countries is welcome.
