Welcome to EWEPA XVI
the 16th European Workshop
on Efficiency and Productivity Analysis
EWEPA XVI is taking place in London next June, 30 years after the first EWEPA conference, which was held in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, in 1989. Since that first event, EWEPA has quickly become the leading biennial conference devoted to the methodology and application of productivity, efficiency and performance analysis of organisations. Following the success of the preceding EWEPA, held in London in 2017, we expect a very large number of academics and practitioners from all continents to take part in EWEPA XVI in 2019. The Organising Committee invites presentations on different topics in the fields of productivity and efficiency. This includes theoretical issues of productivity analysis, popular parametric and nonparametric methodologies, such as stochastic frontier analysis and data envelopment analysis, bootstrapping approaches and interfaces with related disciplines. We also welcome methodology and application papers concerned with the issues of measurement, understanding, incentivising and improving the performance of organisations in different sectors. We look forward to seeing you there!
