Introduction

 

The Research Group on Input-Output (IOG) created in 2003 was born with the goal of gathering as many researches on Input-Output as possible, without any constrain concerning where they are from. Currently, researchers of 11 universities from Spain, Italy and South America form the group.

We strongly believe that organizing a conference on input-output techniques is a good way for supporting and spreading their applications. This conference is open to everyone interested in input-output and wants to be a place for the discussion of its attendants’ ideas, which undoubtedly will enrich all of us. One of the aims of this conference is its own continuity for following years; we want it to be the first but not the last. We would like it to become the starting point from new conferences and events related to “our” field. Getting this last is in your hands.
