CSWEP: Calls and Announcements


CSWEP Sessions @ 2019 American Economic Association Meeting
January 4-6, 2019 (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday)
Atlanta, GA - Atlanta Marriott Marquis
Deadline: Friday, March 9, 2018 

CSWEP invites abstract submissions for paper presentation at six CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2019 ASSA/AEA Meeting in Philadelphia. Two sessions will be focused on Gender-related topics.  We are particularly interested in papers on gender in the economics profession, although the decision to sponsor a session on this topic will depend on the number and quality of submissions. Two sessions will include papers from all areas of Microeconomic Theory, particularly in game theory, contract theory, mechanism design, and information economics, and up to two sessions will be in the field of Economic History.

CSWEP's primary intention in organizing these sessions is to create an opportunity for junior women to present papers at the meetings; and to provide 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.  Coauthors may be of either sex and may be junior or senior.  The gender-related sessions are also open to papers by junior men.

The organizers of the AEA sessions will select a subset of the presented papers for publication in the 2019 AEA Papers & Proceedings. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit their paper for publication consideration in December.

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 2019 AEA Meeting. Similarly, authors whose paper is accepted to a 2019 CSWEP session will be expected to withdraw it from consideration by any other organization at the same meetings.

Please click here to submit your abstract.

The deadline for submission is: Friday, March 9, 2018

To have research considered for the CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2019 AEA Meeting, the Correspondence Author must complete an online submission form and upload an abstract: 

The application form will ask for the following information:

  1. Indication of submission to one of the sessions: Gender-related Topics, Economics of Gender in the Economics Profession, Microeconomic Theory, or Economic History. Note that all applications submitted to the Economics of Gender in the Economics Profession will automatically be considered for the Gender-related Topics as well.
  2. Indication of a single abstract submission or a complete session submission.
  3. The Name, Title, Affiliation, Mailing Address and Email for the correspondence author or session organizer.
  4. Name (s), Title(s), Affiliation(s) and Email address (es) for any coauthor(s) or for each corresponding author in a complete session submission.

The abstract should be a PDF document, with a length not to exceed two pages, double-spaced, and with a maximum of 650 words. Name the file: “Abstract_Corresponding Author Last Name-First Name.” The abstract should contain details on motivation, contribution, methodology and data (if applicable); and be clearly identified with the author(s) name(s). Completed papers may be sent but may not substitute for an abstract of the appropriate length.

Call for Carolyn Shaw Bell Award Nominations

The annual Carolyn Shaw Bell Award is given to an individual who has furthered the status of women in the economics profession, through example, achievements, increasing our understanding of how women can advance in the economics profession, or mentoring others. Nominations should include a nomination letter, updated CV and three or more supporting letters, with preferably at least two from mentees. This award celebrates individuals who have furthered the status of women in economics, therefore nomination letters should be geared toward examples of how the nominee has fulfilled that criteria – including leading by example and achievement, increasing an understanding of how women can advance, or mentoring others – rather than toward academic achievements.

The Award Committee automatically retains and considers applications for a period of three years. Nominations are due September 26, 2018.

Nominations for the award may be sent to:

Shelly Lundberg, CSWEP Chair
Department of Economics
University of California
