It is a great opportunity for you to share your experiences and knowledge with others. You can choose the topic you would like to speak on (~5-10 minutes) and we ask that you stay for the question and answer session to follow. These sessions are well attended (and appreciated 

If you would like to participate in the panel, have specific suggestions regarding the topics to be covered, potential panelists, or other aspects, please submit your comments and ideas to Ragan Petrie (rpetrie@tamu.edu).

Call for Abstracts, CSWEP Sessions @ 2020 American Economic Association Meeting
January 3-5, 2020, (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday)
San Diego, CA – San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina

Deadline: March 8, 2019

CSWEP invites abstract submissions for paper presentation at six CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2020 ASSA/AEA Meeting in San Diego. 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 on Financial Globalization, Growth and Welfare, and two sessions will be in the field of Crime Research.

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. For this reason, the presenting author of each paper should be a junior woman. 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. There are no restrictions on the gender or seniority of coauthors. There are two exceptions to the requirement that the presenting author be a junior woman – the gender-related sessions are open to all junior economists, and potential sessions on gender in the economics profession are open to all.

The organizers of the AEA sessions will select a subset of the presented papers for publication in the 2020 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 2020 AEA Meeting. Similarly, authors whose paper is accepted to a 2020 CSWEP session will be expected to withdraw it from consideration by any other organization at the same meetings.

The deadline for submission is: March 8, 2019.

To have research considered for the CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2020 AEA Meeting, the Correspondence Author must complete an online submission form and upload an abstract: https://ucsbltsc.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8GkH0x8hyXGADkx 

The application form will ask for the following information: 

  1. Indication of submission to one of the sessions: *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.
    1. Gender-related Topics
    2. Economics of Gender in the Economics Profession
    3. Financial Globalization, Growth and Welfare
    4. Crime Research
  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, not exceeding two pages in length, double-spaced, 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.

Questions can be addressed to Lauren Lewis, Committee Coordinator, info@cswep.org.
