The ninth annual meeting of the International Political Economy Society will be held November 14-15, 2014 at Georgetown University. The conference program is available here.
IPES is scheduled in 30 minute blocks. All presentations will be strictly held to a maximum of 12 minutes, with 15 minutes for questions from the floor. This then leaves three minutes to pass from room to room between presentations. Because of the need to keep all three rooms on the same time schedule, time limits are tightly enforced.

The meeting will be held in the Rafik B. Hariri Building, home of the McDonough School of Business, at Georgetown University (37th & O Street, NW, Washington, DC).
