A committee formed by Renato Perim Colistete (FEA-USP), William Summerhill (UCLA), and Leonardo Weller (EESP-FGV) will evaluate the submissions. The Workshop is organized as a series of one-hour, single-paper sessions attended by all participants. Nine papers will be selected for presentation and discussion. The committee will announce the list of the selected articles on 15th May 2018. William Summerhill will give the keynote address.

The committee welcomes working papers with research-based results relevant to the literature, written in Portuguese or English. We invite the submission of papers that draw upon primary evidence and employ appropriate analytical tools, regardless of the period and topic of analysis. Even though the workshop is meant to focus on Brazilian economic history, the committee may accept papers on other countries.

The Workshop will cover hotel accommodation and meals for one presenter of every accepted paper, while participants will be responsible for their travel expenses.
