Call for Expressions of Interest from ACEI members

In order to introduce the Association for Cultural Economics International (ACEI) among academics, experts and young researchers from Chinese universities and to promote a forum for discussion and scientific exchange in our field of study, as well as strengthen international scientific cooperation between researchers and institutions.

We are hereby issuing the call for the First China-ACEI Convention, to be held in Xi’an, China, between 18 and 21 April 2024, organised by the Xi’an University of Architecture and Technology and the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

The main topic of the conference is proposed as ‘International Cultural Cooperation: economic analysis, policies and challenges’, although papers can be submitted on a wide range of research lines in the field of cultural economics (economics of heritage, performing arts, cultural and creative industries, culture and economic development, cultural consumption, regional and urban dimension of culture, evaluation of cultural policies and institutions, statistical techniques applied to culture, etc.).

With the collaboration of Chinese universities, 10 places are granted to academic members of ACEI, covering accommodation and basic food expenses during the conference days. Travel expenses, visa formalities, pre- or post-congress stay and any other related expenses are therefore excluded. ACEI members are encouraged to participate in order to provide a diverse, representative and open meeting for discussion and to strengthen our Association in China.

A management and selection committee has been appointed composed of Juan Prieto (University of Oviedo), Bronwyn Coate (RMIT), and Luis César Herrero (University of Valladolid). Those interested in attending the Convention under the terms established should fill in the following template (also below) by 26 January 2024, including name of author/s, title of the paper and extended abstract (400 words). A decision on applications is expected by 31 January. The somewhat hurried deadlines are motivated by the need to provide personal invitations for visa formalities before February (Chinese New Year), considering that formalities will take at least one month (depending on each country’s visa requirements). Papers and presentations must be submitted by 4 April. If you have any queries, please contact, citing China ACEI Convention in the email subject.
