This is the third interdisciplinary conference about the use of artificial intelligence in white collar work and implications for the labour market. White collar work is increasingly important in employment. Meanwhile, it performs a number of tasks that are susceptible to AI-induced automation. At the conference, researchers will present their current research. We welcome researchers in economics, computer-science, informatics, statistics, management, and law. To benefit the research presented, we aim for an active and close interaction between participants, akin to a workshop.


Every presenter is expected to be a discussant for another paper. The conference includes ample opportunities to network. 

Other attendees are welcome, subject to space limitations.

Venue: Katrinelunds Gästgiveri & Sjökrog, beautifully located by Lake Hjälmaren, 30 mins outside Örebro.

Conference accommodation is covered for presenters, while their economy travel is remunerated up to fixed amounts. Conference meals are covered for all.
