Welcome to the first issue of volume 18 of the Australian Journal of Labour Economics for 2015. This Special Paul Miller Tibute issue contains articles selected from the conference in memory of Paul Miller, held over 11 and 12 November 2014. They include, fittingly, papers co-authored with Paul himself, papers by old colleagues and by relative newcomers to the profession. However, they have in common two of the themes for which Paul was best known, namely, the economics of education and of migration.
