North American Productivity Workshop (NAPW 2023)


Plenary Speakers


Paper Submissions


NAPW has long been established as a major biennial conference on the topics of productivity, efficiency and performance analysis. Following the successful NAPW X in 2018 and vNAPW in 2020 and 2021, we are again pleased to host NAPW XI in person at the Miami Herbert Business School. We expect a large and diverse body of participants to attend.

Submissions on the theory and application of economics, econometrics, statistics, management science and operational research related to problems in all areas of productivity and efficiency measurement more broadly are highly encouraged. Our aim is to have a conference program that features all popular techniques and methodologies within the field, including stochastic frontier analysis and data envelopment analysis. We also welcome papers on broader issues related to measuring, understanding, incentivizing and improving the productivity and performance of firms, public services, and industries.

On behalf of the scientific committee, we look forward to welcoming all participants of NAPW XI to Miami this upcoming June.

Paper Submission FAQ

How do I add coauthors with my submission in Conference Maker?

You can add coauthors after submitting your paper by logging in to Conference Maker. Click on the paper ID, then click on Add Modify Authors. Click on Add New Author. In the search screen, enter the first name/last name of the person. This will return a list of people. Chances are your coauthors may already have a free account with Conference Maker. Click on the userID of the person you wish to add and follow the remaining prompts.

Please note that no submitter is required to enter coauthors if they do not want to do this. Generally, only the presenter and not all coauthors need to register for the conference; however, the registration form does not prohibit the coauthors from registering as participants if they want. By default, the submitter of a paper is assumed to be the presenter, and if a submitter cannot present, they should ask one of their coauthors to register and switch the submitter ID for their submission to be the ID of the coauthor who will present the paper.
