In the Context of “New Normal” Theory: Deepen the Comprehensive Reform in China

The CES 2015 China Conference

June 13-14, 2015

Chongqing University, China

The "new normal" theory elaborated by Chinese President Xi Jinping was one of the hallmarks to be engraved in history by the 2014 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in Beijing. The Chinese Economists Society (CES) calls for paper submissions for its 2015 CES China Conference, to be held at Chongqing University, June 13-14 (Saturday and Sunday), 2015. The local hosts for the conference are Chongqing University Faculty of Social Sciences and School of Economics and Business Administration.  The theme of the conference is “In the Context of ‘New Normal’ Theory: Deepen the Comprehensive Reform in China”. The conference features some well-known scholars, invited speakers, round table forums, and parallel sessions. Arrival and registration of participants will take place on June 12, 2015, Friday . All speeches and sessions will be held on June 13-14, 2015.

This conference will promote exchanges of academic ideas related to the Chinese economy.  This conference will also accept theoretical and empirical papers not directly related to the Chinese economy. It also provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students outside of China, who are interested in working in China, to learn about employment opportunities in China. We will invite Chinese universities to recruit at the conference for new faculty and pursue visiting opportunities in China for their faculty members. This conference also invites student participation by offering best paper awards and valuable opportunities for students to network with experienced scholars.


CES invites both members and non-members to present papers and/or to propose organized sessions at the 2015 China Conference. Non-members are invited to join CES and enjoy a discounted registration rate. All fields of specialization within Economics and Business will be considered, but papers focusing on the Chinese economy will be given priority. The abstract submission deadline is April 15 , 2015.

Scholars interested in presenting a paper at the conference are asked to submit a paper proposal, which must include a title, abstract of no more than 400 words, and JEL code(s) with keywords. Paper proposals must be submitted via the CES website at www.china-ces.org. You will be notified by e-mail by April 15, 2015, as to whether your proposal has been accepted.


If you would like to organize one or more sessions on a specific topic and have participants lined up, please send your proposal to chongqing2015@umich.edu.. An organized session usually includes 3-4 paper presentations and discussants. When you submit your session, please be sure to include the following information: names, affiliation and contact information of the session organizer, and names, affiliation, and contact information for the presenters and discussants. Please note that papers included in the session must still go through the regular paper submission process through the CES website. However, the “Comments” section of the form should make reference to the special session (e.g.  “This paper is part of a special session on Urbanization organized by Prof. So and So”). The submission deadline for proposed organized sessions is also April 15, 2015.

GREGORY CHOW BEST PAPER AWARD and Elsevier Best Paper Award

We will select an outstanding paper presented at the 2015 CES China conference by a junior scholar for the Gregory Chow Best Paper Award. To be eligible for consideration for this prestigious award, the primary author of the paper must be a graduate student or a junior scholar who received his/her PhD within the last five years. The award winner will receive a certificate and a US $1,000 prize. Persons interested in being considered for the award must provide information confirming eligibility at the time of submission.  The information on another best paper award (Elsevier Best Paper Award) will be announced in the spring of 2015.


There will be ample opportunities for publications. The CES plans to select a group of high quality papers presented at the conference for inclusion in special issues of two high quality peer review SSCI journals, China Economic Review and Review of Development Economics. Details about these publication opportunities and other opportunities of conference proceeding by the World Scientific Press will be provided later.


All presenters must register for the Conference. Registration should be made online through the conference website at www.china-ces.org under “Conferences”.   Limited room subsidies are available upon request to our student members whose papers are accepted and presented to the conference.
