Since Adam Smith, social and economic institutions and technology have been considered as particularly influential in determining the historical patterns of income growth and distribution among nations. More recently, economists have also emphasized that industrial sectors grow at different rate.
This phenomenon has been called Structural Change.  Regions within a nation and national economies within the world also grow at different rates, giving structural change important spatial and institutional dimensions.
The goal of this conference is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of different approaches to the analysis of technological, spatial and institutional structural change and explore their theoretical, empirical, historical, and methodological implications.
