Econ-Harmony for the 2015 conference will open in February of 2014.
Econ-Harmony: An AEA Service for Organizing Complete Annual Meeting Session Proposals.
An AEA service, Econ-Harmony began in 2009 and continues in 2013 for the 2014 Annual Meetings program. Econ-Harmony allows prospective individual paper submitters who are members of the AEA to post information about their paper and search for others with similar interests who might join them to form a complete session submission. It also allows AEA members to volunteer to chair sessions.
COMPLETE SESSIONS HAVE A SUBSTANTIALLY GREATER CHANCE OF MAKING THE PROGRAM THAN INDIVIDUAL PAPERS.
31% of 347 submitted complete sessions and 12% of 1,331 submitted individual papers made the 2013 AEA Annual Meeting program.
Econ-Harmony does not replace the formal submission process

and it does not guarantee that a session will be included on the program. Rather, it is designed to help prospective authors identify others working on similar questions so they can form a jointly organized complete session to submit in the regular submission process. The normal submitted session includes four papers and a discussant for each.
Submissions for the 2014 Annual AEA meeting are now closed.
