SIOE 2020

24th Annual Conference of
the Society for Institutional & Organizational Economics

June 18-20, 2020
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Cambridge, MA, USA

The Society for Institutional and Organizational Economics (SIOE) studies institutions and organizations, largely but not entirely from the perspective of economics. In 2020, SIOE will hold its annual conference at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), beginning with a plenary session late afternoon on Thursday, June 18, and concluding with a gala dinner on Saturday, June 20.

The call for papers is closed.

The conference will include two plenary sessions. Late Thursday afternoon, June 18, there will be a panel of past presidents of SIOE (and of its predecessor, ISNIE) discussing “2020 Hindsight: What Would Coase, North, Ostrom, and Williamson Want Us Not to Forget?” Late Friday afternoon, June 19, there will be a keynote address by Melissa Dell (Harvard).
