Submissions for Selected Presentations must include a two-page, single-spaced abstract that provides a clear explanation of what will be presented at the Joint Annual Meeting. Authors should include in this abstract a discussion of the relevance of the topic, research methodology, and potential for generating discussion during the meeting. Please do not include your name or contact information in the abstract file. Please do not submit abstract titles in all caps.
Abstracts must be received by Thursday, January 15, 2015, and should be submitted using AAEA’s online Abstract Management System. Material previously presented at other meetings cannot be accepted, and the submitting author will be asked to verify that the material has not been presented elsewhere.
Review ProcessAll submissions will be subjected to a common, double-blind review process. After the review process has been completed, topic leaders will construct coherent Selected Paper Sessions and Lightning Session based on a common topic. All remaining accepted presentations will be assigned as a poster. Notification of whether a presentation proposal has been accepted will be sent via email by mid-March, or as soon as possible thereafter. Please check spam boxes, as notification email may have gone there. Should you not find an email by mid-April, please feel free to contact the AAEA Business Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (414) 918-3190.
PostersPosters will be prominently displayed throughout the meeting. Posters will be featured in a Sunday night poster reception and assigned poster showcase sessions. Poster authors should be available during their assigned interval for questions and discussion. The printed program will list the poster titles, authors, locations, and presentation time. Poster presenters must submit a PDF version of their Poster to AgEcon Search no later than May 27, 2015. Posters that miss this deadline will need to be withdrawn from the program.
Selected Paper Sessions and Lightning SessionsSelected Papers can be allotted 9 or 20 minutes for presentation at the meeting, which is dependent on what type of session a paper is assigned to. Up to 8 papers are included in a Lightning Session and up to 4 papers are included in a Selected Paper Session. Each type of session lasts 90 minutes. Each of the 8 paper presentations in a Lightning Session is given 9 minutes; 7 minutes to present and 2 minutes for discussion, and each presentation in a Selected Paper Session is given 20 minutes for each presentation; 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion.
Authors of Selected Papers must submit a full version of their paper to AgEcon Search no later than May 27, 2015. Papers that miss this deadline will be withdrawn from the program. The full version of the paper has no length limitations, but less than 25 pages is preferred. Double-spaced, 8.5 by 11-inch, single-sided format is requested. Please follow the American Journal of Agricultural Economics style guidelines, with the exception of the single table/figure per page convention.
