AEA Call for Papers

Call for Sessions and Papers for the 2017 AEA Meeting. The deadline for submissions to be considered for the January 2017 AEA Meeting program in Chicago is April 1, 2016 for individual papers and April 15, 2016 for complete sessions. 

Committee on Economic Statistics (AEAStat) will sponsor three sessions on economic measurement at the January 2017 ASSA Meetings in Chicago. The Committee solicits both individual papers and proposals for sessions of three or four papers, with preference given to session proposals. The Committee is interested in receiving submissions in any area of economic data and statistics. One of the three sessions organized by the Committee will be published in the AEA Papers and Proceedings. For more information or a list of papers selected for past AEAStat sponsored sessions go to https://www.aeaweb.org/committees/AEAStat/annual_meeting.php. Abstracts are due by April 1, 2016 to Robert Moffitt, Chair, Committee on Economic Statistics, aea_stat@aeaweb.org. Submissions should be PDF files and include name, institutional affiliation, and email address of all participants.

The AEA Committee on Economic Education will sponsor a poster session at the 2017 ASSA Meetings January 6-8 in Chicago devoted to active learning strategies across the economics curriculum. Instead of papers, session presenters will prepare large visual poster summaries of their work, which will be mounted in an exhibition room to allow presenters to talk directly with session participants. Although we encourage presenters to include evidence that their strategy enhances learning, we do not require quantifiable evidence. Presenters should emphasize the originality of their strategy and provide sufficient information so that session participants may apply the technique in their own classrooms. Proposals should describe the teaching strategy and explain how it will be displayed on the poster. Posters marketing textbooks, commercial software, or similar materials will not be considered for the session. Proposals are limited to two pages and are due by April 1, 2016. Proposals should include full contact information for all authors. Please send proposals to Steven Cobb, University of North Texas, scobb@unt.edu.
