To encourage the widest participation, the workshop will host a poster exhibition of works, spanning from opening to closure, with a dedicated session during the lunch break on Friday 14th. The call for posters is open to all scholars.

The participation of young researchers from diverse disciplines working on the topics the conference (labor market policies, industrial relations, dynamics in the labor markets) is particularly encouraged. Of great interest are works investigating the conference’s topics from an interdisciplinary perspective.

A 500 Euro prize in the name of Riccardo Revelli – a pioneer in the use of administrative data for labour market analysis, who passed away 20 years ago – will be awarded by Laboratorio Revelli to the best poster presented by a young researcher (under 35). The winner will be announced during the social dinner.

An extended abstract (max 600 words, detailing methods and results of the work) should be sent tolabor@laboratoriorevelli.it by January 10, 2020. Accepted authors will send an A1 color poster in pdf format by January 31st; the organizing committee will print them. No attendance fees are required. All poster presenters can join the conference dinner at no cost.
