Call for Sessions and Papers for the January 2014 American Economic Association Annual Meeting
Members wishing to give papers or organize complete sessions for the program for the meetings in Philadelphia are invited to submit proposals electronically to Professor William Nordhaus via the American Economic Association website. While papers covering a wide array of topics in economics will be included on the 2014 program, Professor Nordhaus especially encourages inter-disciplinary proposals.
To be considered, individual paper proposals (with abstracts) and up to two Journal of Economic Literature bibliographic codes in rank order should be submitted by April 1, 2013. The deadline for complete session proposals is April 15, 2013. At least one author of each paper must be an AEA member. All authors of papers on a complete session must join the AEA if the session is selected for the program.
Proposals for complete sessions have historically had a higher probability of inclusion (35–40%) than papers submitted individually (10–15%). Individual paper contributors are strongly encouraged to use the AEA’s Econ-Harmony website to form integrated sessions. Proposals for a complete session should be submitted only by the session organizer. Sessions normally contain three or four papers.
Please make certain your information is complete before submission. No changes will be accepted until a decision is made about inclusion on the program (usually in July). Econometric studies or highly mathematical papers are not appropriate for sessions sponsored by the AEA: such papers should be submitted to the Econometric Society. Do not send a complete paper. The Association discourages multiple proposals from the same person, and under no circumstances should the same person submit more than two proposals.
Some of the papers presented at the annual meeting are published in the May American Economic Review (the Papers & Proceedings). The President-elect includes at least three contributed sessions (12 papers) from among those submitted in response to this Call for Sessions and Papers.

ASSA Meetings - January 3-5, 2014 in Philadelphia, PA
The Committee on Economic Education will sponsor a poster session at the 2014 ASSA Meetings in Philadelphia devoted to active learning strategies across the economics curriculum. Instead of papers, session presenters will prepare large visual poster summaries of their work, which will be mounted in an exhibition room to allow presenters to talk directly with session participants. Although we encourage presenters to include evidence that their strategy enhances learning, we do not require quantifiable evidence. Presenters should emphasize the originality of their strategy and provide sufficient information so that session participants may apply the technique in their own classrooms.
Proposals should describe the teaching strategy and explain how it will be described in the poster. Posters marketing textbooks, commercial software, or similar materials will not be considered for the session.
Proposals are limited to two pages and are due by April 1, 2013.
Proposals should include full contact information for all authors.
