国際シュンペータ学会より大会開催のご案内

Dear Friends and Colleagues

I am very pleased to announce that the 2012 International Schumpeter Society Conference will be held at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, July 2nd-5th. This will be the first time that the Conference has been held in the Asia-Pacific region since it was held in Kyoto, Japan in 1992. So the organizers are particularly keen to attract researchers and scholars from Japan to attend and present at the Conference.

The title of the Conference is:

Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Competitive Processes in Complex Economic Systems

The Conference Website can be accessed at http://schumpeterconference.org/.

Call for Papers:

We welcome all submissions that deal with theoretical, methodological, empirical and policy issues with an evolutionary economic focus. Examples of fields in which submissions are welcome are:

- applied evolutionary economics
- behavioral economics
- competitive processes
- complex economic systems
- economic development
- economic history
- entrepreneurship
- evolution of preferences
- evolutionary economic methodology
- evolutionary economic policy
- evolutionary economic theory
- evolutionary macroeconomics
- experimental economics
- innovation policy
- organizational innovation
- political economy
- regulatory economics
- socioeconomics
- technological innovation
- theory of the firm

Although the Conference is open to submissions in all areas of evolutionary economics, we would like to encourage submissions in six priority areas:

1. Evolutionary perspectives on the causes and consequences of high economic growth in Asian economies
2. The role of energy and other natural resources in economic evolution
3. Understanding and achieving environmental sustainability using evolutionary economic analysis
4. The role of intellectual property in driving innovation in the new media
5. Long waves, finance and global crises
6. Productivity growth and structural change

In addition, we encourage researchers to offer proposals for parallel sessions on other topics of contemporary interest and to coordinate paper submissions for these sessions. Of course, there is no guarantee that such papers will be automatically accepted since all submissions have to go through a formal review process.

All extended abstracts and finalized papers must be submitted online through the 'Speaker Portal' in the ‘Call for Papers’ field of the Conference Website.

The provisional Conference Program, which includes the plenary session themes and Keynote Speakers, is available on the Conference Website.


The Schumpeter Prize Competition:

Submissions are invited for the 13th Schumpeter Prize Competition, which carries a cash award of 10,000 EURO, on the following topic:

Evolving towards sustainability: the role of entrepreneurship, innovation and competition

Submissions must not have been published before 01/07/2010 and can be in the form of a book/manuscript or article/paper. Submissions will be judged by an international scientific committee and the winner will be announced and the 2012 Conference Dinner.

Submissions must be sent in original plus four copies to: Professor Uwe Cantner, Department of Economics, Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, Carl-Zeiss-Strasse 3, Jena, Germany, D-07743.

In addition, emails must be sent to both Professor Uwe Cantner (uwe.cantner@uni-jena.de) and Professor Kurt Dopfer (kurt.dopfer@unisg.ch) confirming that a submission has been mailed.

Entries must be received no later than 01/03/2012.



We very much look forward to your participation in the 2012 Conference in Australia
