CSWEP: 2022 ASSA Paper Sessions

CSWEP Call for Abstracts
Sessions at 2022 AEA Meeting: January 7-9, 2022 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday)
Boston, MA - Sheraton Boston Hotel

Deadline: Extended to March 8, 2021 

CSWEP invites abstract submissions for paper presentation at seven CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2022 ASSA/AEA Meeting in Boston. At least two sessions will be focused on Gender-related topics. We are particularly interested in papers on gender in the economics profession and gender disparities in the impacts of COVID-19, although the decision to sponsor a special session on either of these topics will depend on the number and quality of submissions. We are also planning several sessions focused on Labor Economics and on Public Economics. Within those sessions, we may devote one of the sessions to studies of the impacts of social safety net programs if sufficient submissions on that topic are received.

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 anyone identifying as a woman or nonbinary who is untenured, or who has received a 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 2022 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 2022 AEA Meeting. Similarly, authors whose paper is accepted to a 2022 CSWEP session will be expected to withdraw it from consideration by any other organization at the same meetings.

The deadline for submission is: Extended to March 8, 2021
