CSWEP Sessions, American Economic Association Meeting Call for Abstracts
January 3 - 5, 2015
Sheraton Boston, MA
CSWEP invites abstract submissions for paper presentation at six CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2015 ASSA/AEA Meeting in Boston, MA. Three sessions will be focused on Gender-related topics and three sessions will be from the field of Macroeconomics/International.
CSWEP's primary intention in organizing these sessions is to create an opportunity for junior women to present papers at economics meetings; and to provide them an opportunity to meet with and receive feedback from leading economists in their field. The term junior woman usually refers to a woman who is untenured, or who has received her PhD less than seven years ago; but could also refer to a woman who has not yet presented papers widely. Co-authors may be of either sex and may be junior or senior. Junior men may author papers in the gender-related sessions.
CSWEP sessions also aim to encourage quality research, particularly in the area of gender-related topics, and to encourage junior women to publish their research. As such, the organizers of the AEA sessions will select a subset of eight of the presented papers for publication in the Papers & Proceedings issue of the American Economic Review. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit their paper for publication consideration in advance of the paper sessions.
In addition to individual paper submissions, complete session proposals may be submitted, but the papers in the session proposal will be considered individually. Duplication of paper presentation at multiple AEA Sessions is not permitted, therefore authors will be expected to notify CSWEP immediately and withdraw their abstract if their paper is accepted for a non-CSWEP session at the 2015 AEA Meetings. Similarly, authors whose paper is accepted to a 2015 CSWEP session, will be expected to withdraw it from consideration by any other organization at the same meetings.
The deadline for submission is February 28, 2014.
To have research considered for the CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2015 AEA Meetings, the Correspondence Author may send the following materials to firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. A cover letter:
- indicating submission to either the Gender-related or Macroeconomics/International sessions;
- the paper title; and
- including the Name, Title, Affiliation, Mailing Address and Email for the correspondence author and any co-author(s).
2. An abstract of 1 – 2 pages (maximum 1000 words), clearly labeled with the paper title and author name(s) and affiliation(s). Completed papers may be sent but may not substitute for an abstract of the appropriate length.
