From the Call For Papers:
"As competitive pressures from globalization and technological change continue to challenge our economy, it is of great importance to understand the impact of these changes for education and training policies, as well as the role of firms in this evolving environment. Perspectives taking a longer historical view are also welcome.

  • Public policies for education and training
  • Education and training: worker/firm outcomes

  • Workplace practices: evolution and performance
  • Working time/schedules and hours constraints
  • Computer/internet use in school/on the job
  • Work-life balance issues and policies
  • Education and health
  • Older workers, training and the evolving workplace

Keynote speakers: David Card, UC-Berkeley and Kathryn Shaw, Stanford University
Proposals were due November 30th, 2005.
