We are looking for bids for potential hosts for 2018 and 2019 conferences. We aim to be in a position to decide upon the venue at the annual conference one year in advance. To do so, successful bids will need to demonstrate that they have suitable arrangements (including sponsorship) in place by then. Since venues get booked up and, in particular, funding cycles typically involve very long lead-times, please dont delay in expressing an interest!
If you would like to host the ACE conference in a future year, please contact
For administrative questions in connection with the annual conferences, please contact the ACE Secretariat: Dagny.Kristiansen@nhh.no
