2022 Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management Meeting

Call for Abstracts
DCSWEP Sessions at 2022 Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management Fall Research Meeting (APPAM)
17–19 November 2022
Washington Hilton
Washington, DC

DEADLINE Extended: 27 May 2022

The Washington, DC, Chapter of CSWEP (DCSWEP) invites abstract submissions for paper presentations at two CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2022 APPAM Fall Research Meeting to be held in Washington, DC. This year’s conference theme is Advancing Policy Research with Cross-Disciplinary Perspectives. We are planning two sessions, with the following themes:

Interdisciplinary Research and Approaches Towards Creating More Gender-Aware, Gender-Equal Economic Policies
One of the primary values of interdisciplinary research is how it results in stronger policy solutions, and this especially applies to economic policy. This panel seeks to explore the inclusive research practices from other social sciences that allow for more equitable and comprehensive economic policies, with an emphasis on ensuring gender equality in economic outcomes.

Interdisciplinary Approaches to Understanding Innovation Incentives
Innovations resulting in new products or processes and diffusion of those innovations are important for economic growth. In order to design effective policies to promote innovation, it is important to understand what drives incentives to innovate. This panel explores through interdisciplinary approaches how innovation incentives might be shaped by various public policies such as antitrust enforcement, public funding of research, intellectual property protection, and diversity and inclusion in STEM fields.

Please email abstracts (1–2 pages, including names of all authors, as well as their affiliations, addresses, email addresses, and paper titles) to StephanieHolzbauer (sholzbauer@brookings.edu) by 5:00 PM EST on Friday, May 27, 2022. Please denote which author will present the paper if accepted. In addition to individual paper submissions, complete session proposals may be submitted, but the papers in the session proposal will be considered individually. DCSWEP’s goal 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, we will prioritize submissions where the presenting author is 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 Ph.D. 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.

Duplication of paper presentations at multiple APPAM sessions is not permitted. Therefore, authors will be expected to notify DCSWEP immediately and withdraw their abstract if their paper is accepted for a non-DCSWEP session at the 2022 APPAM Meeting. Similarly, authors whose paper is accepted to a 2022 DCSWEP session will be expected to withdraw it from consideration by any other organization at the same meetings.
