In order to help fulfill its mission, the Mises Institute of Canada is launching the Toronto Austrian Scholars Conference. The conference is designed to combine the opportunities of a professional meeting, with the added attraction of hearing and presenting new and innovative research, engaging in vigorous debate, and interacting with likeminded scholars who share research interests.

Papers and panels cover a wide range of fields that impact on the Austrian paradigm, including: monetary theory; international trade; money and banking; methodology; history of thought; economic history; business cycles; geography; interventionism; literature; political philosophy; philosophy of science; society, culture, and religion; business regulation; environmental political economy; and history and theory of war.

Participants who wish to present their papers must send an abstract to no later than September 28th, 2012. Submissions will be accepted until all the time slots are taken. Abstracts should be two pages or less with double spacing, one-inch margins and 12 point font. Authors should indicate in the body of the e-mail if they would be willing to volunteer as discussants and/or session moderators.

Submission review and selection will be handled by Predrag Rajsic of the University of Guelph,  Walter Block the Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Chair in Economics and Professor of Economics at Loyola University New Orleans and David Howden, chair of the Division of Business and Social Sciences at Saint Louis University Madrid.
