Mises Institute Conference Cancelled

Austrian Economics Research Conference 2020

MARCH 20, 2020 – MARCH 21, 2020
A Message for AERC Attendees:

We are extremely sorry to announce the cancellation of our upcoming Austrian Economics Research Conference, scheduled for March 20th and 21st in Auburn.

Several developments over the past 48 hours led to this decision.

First, many of our presenting professors were instructed by their respective universities not to travel. To ignore this would risk administrative discipline and loss of travel funds. Without enough key presenters and session chairs directing discussions, the entire conference loses much of its purpose. Second, the announced ban on flights from Europe into the US affects a significant number of attendees. Finally, we would hate for our conference (or travel to our conference) to result in anyone becoming sick, however unlikely.
As soon as possible we will let you know if the event will be rescheduled for later this year, or alternatively announce dates for 2021.

All conference registration fees will be refunded. Again, we are truly sorry and full of regret at having to cancel this great event.

Jeff Deist
