Welcome to the 21st International Conference on Cultural Economics which is being delivered fully online.

This year the conference theme is cultural policy which, particularly in the wake of COVID has enormous relevance for the cultural economy.

Despite the challenges that has resulted in the decision to make the conference fully online, this year’s conference is one of the biggest ones yet with 5 keynote speakers, 7 panels and over 120 paper presentations plus the Young Researchers Workshop that is being Chaired by Assoc. Prof. Christian Handke.

We hope that you will enjoy the conference and will find the conference program stimulating.

Conference Platform

We are pleased to announce that the ACEI is working with AppInConf to deliver an interactive web platform that will support our conference.

Everyone planning to be involved in the upcoming ACEI conference (as presenter, panelist, young researcher or attendee) should have now received instructions on how to register with the online platform being supported by AppIn. While the platform is still ‘under construction’ we encourage everyone who will be participating, to go into the conference platform and complete your profile details and upload any files you wish to share (including for paper presenters your pre-recorded presentations). As you’ll see when you enter, the platform supports interactivity between delegates which is an important feature we really want to encourage delegates to use to make the most of the virtual conference experience on offer. If you can have your files and profile ready by 28 June that will help us ensure that once the Young Researcher Workshop and conference officially everything is ready to go.

If you haven’t already done so:

  1. Please register here with your email
  2. Then go to https://virtual.appinconf.com/ and login — you will now see the conference in the list. Otherwise please use the conference code: acei2021 to access the platform.
