Two-day Conference in Memory of Anastassios D. Karayiannis

Anastassios D. Karayiannis, Professor in the Department of Economics of the University of Piraeus, passed away in January 2012. Many academic economists were fortunate to get to know him personally and some of us were even more fortunate to co-author and publish scientific papers with him. Thus, over a year from his death, we thought it appropriate to organize a conference in his memory and, if possible, put together a volume of selected papers to honor the significant contribution he made to us and to our profession.

Our intention is to publish the aforementioned volume in English and distribute it through a well-known foreign publisher. For this reason, even though all papers in Greek and English will be considered for presentation, authors of papers in Greek whose papers are selected for inclusion in the volume should be prepared to translate them into English.

The deadlines are as follows: (a) May 31, 2013, for submitting an abstract; (b) September 30, 2013 for submitting full papers. Papers should be sent to the coordinator of the organizing committee, Professor George C. Bitros at bitros@aurb.gr

The organizing committee will appreciate receiving advance notice by colleagues who intend to participate and serve either as authors or session chairs.

The conference is open to anyone who wishes to attend. Hence, you are all welcome to announce it to colleagues and graduate students who might be interested to participate.

Papers in any of the following scientific fields are welcomed and will be considered for presentation:
Entrepreneurship
Economic history
European unification
History of economic theories
Methodology of Economics
Institutional economics
Technical change
Productivity
Problems and prospects of the Greek economy

The organizing committee of the conference consists of:
G. Bitros, Coordinator (Athens University of Economics and Business)
S. Drakopoulos (University of Athens)
N. Kyriazis (University of Thessaly)
M. Zouboulakis (University of Thessaly)
