This one day workshop seeks to explore the use of economic and econometric techniques to study educational issues. We invite the submission of original research from colleagues working in the area. Next to education economics research in general, we especially welcome research that focusses on parental involvement, financial literacy, behavioral economics, and inequality in education. Both macro and micro-economic topics are of interest to this workshop. It is organized by the research center ‘Leuven Economics of Education Research’ (LEER) of the Faculty of Economics and Business at KU Leuven.
The workshop is followed by the PhD defence of Joana E. Maldonado at 1 pm: “Should Parents Get Homework? On Stimulating Home-Based Parental Involvement in Students’ Learning”.

All accepted papers will be published in ACM International Conference Proceedings Series, which will be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and submitted to Ei Compendex and Scopus for index and submitted to be reviewed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI Web of Science).
Welcome to the 8th International Workshop on Efficiency in Education, Health and other Public Services! This workshop is the eighth of a series of academic meetings focused on the efficiency analysis of education institutions and other public sectors, the previous editions being organized in Greece (Thessaloniki, 2013), United Kingdom (London, 2014 and Huddersfield, 2018), Belgium (Leuven, 2015), Italy (Milan, 2016), Hungary (Budapest, 2017) and Spain (Barcelona, 2019). Suspended because of COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021, this year the Workshop will be again proposed in on-campus, vis-à-vis format.
Call for papers Evidence-based policy in education and in other fields of the public sector implies the use of sophisticated techniques to assess the performance and efficiency of organizations. The evaluation of national-level reforms and the assessment of specific interventions in education and other public services require accurate approaches and advanced methods. The purpose of the Workshop is to focus on specific challenges around measuring performance in education and other public services sectors. The Workshop will bring together scholars from various disciplines and fields to debate the present and future challenges in education and public sector efficiency, performance measurement, and policy and managerial implications of the on-going research. The Workshop provides an ideal platform for presenting new methods, applications of existing techniques and advances in theoretical and empirical research.

I would like to issue an invitation to take part in the Data Envelopment Analysis and Performance Measurement Stream of the MCDM 2022 Conference. This conference is on multiple criteria decision making, which will be held between the 26th June and 1st July 2022 at the University of Portsmouth, UK. Contributions from both the academic and the non-academic communities are welcome.
This stream covers papers on the theme of efficiency and productivity analysis and performance management. Both parametric and non-parametric papers will be considered. We especially welcome papers on the theory, methodology and application of Data Envelopment Analysis and econometric methods in performance management. Of particular interest are successful applications of performance and efficiency analysis in the real world, for example in banking, healthcare, education, transportation, and so on. If you are interested in making a presentation, please submit an abstract of your talk no later than March 30, 2022 at https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=mcdm2021.
EWEPA XVII The 17th European Workshop on Efficiency and Productivity Analysis 27 to 29 June 2022

The International Journal of Empirical Economics (IJEE) is a peer-reviewed general interest economics journal aiming to contribute to empirical research in all fields of economics. The objective of the journal is to publish empirical work with the highest quality and theoretical work with clear empirical implications. The journal welcomes papers from a wide range of countries and serves the international community of scholars from universities, research institutes, and international organizations. The journal gives special emphasis on empirical research that covers worldwide topics using newly developed datasets. The journal will publish 4 issues annually and will also publish special issues to emphasize new research directions or specific research vital to the Asian region and the global economy.
The IJEE is an open access journal to provide unrestricted access to scholarly literature. There is no fee for submission and publication of articles. The journal is funded by Sogang University Nam Duck-Woo Economic Research Institute in South Korea and published by World Scientific.

Special Issue: Frontier Methods for Sustainability Challenges
1. AIMS AND SCOPE
The assessment and promotion of sustainable development is an issue with growing importance among scientific and policy-making communities. Efforts from the academy and governmental institutions lead to a better understanding of how local communities, industries, cities, and countries are performing compared to their peers and encouraging the monitoring of progress over time. In recent years, efforts to monitor these components have generated many indicators intended to measure performance on aspects about emissions, waste production, green space, safety, income, health, education, etc. Countries and supranational organizations collect data on these indicators. Still, the amount of data generated is often too large, and it is not sufficiently clear to provide helpful information and practical guidance to attend to the needs of the policymakers. Efforts to measure and quantify the results of policies aiming at sustainable development improvements are necessary to guide decision-making. Thus, there remains a need for advancing existing tools and designing new ones for promoting sustainability improvements. This special issue aims to explore and advance Frontier Methods’ latest achievements to tackle sustainability challenges by publishing articles that address topics, such as:
Theoretical developments of frontier estimation models addressing sustainability challenges
Innovative applications of Data Envelopment Analysis and Stochastic Frontier Analysis to Sustainable Development challenges
Quantitative methods targeting the assessment of the three pillars of Sustainable Development: People (social sustainability), Planet (environmental sustainability), and Prosperity (economic sustainability)
Assessments focused on the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030.
Cross-national comparisons in the examination of sustainable development
Theoretical and methodological challenges in understanding the determinants of sustainable development in the key sectors (e.g., education, health, justice, water and sanitation, energy, or others)
Convergence in the achievement of Sustainable Development at regional, national, or worldwide level
