The 2018 North American Productivity Workshop X is organized by the Department of Economics at the University of Miami Business School.

NAPW has long been established as a major biennial conference on the topics of productivity, efficiency and performance analysis. We expect a large and diverse number of participants to attend NAPW X in Miami, from a wide, international community. Presentations are invited on the theory and application of economics, econometrics, statistics, management science and operational research related to problems in the areas of productivity and efficiency measurement. All popular techniques and methodologies will be represented, 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.
