Call for Proposals: Organized Symposia

AAEA seeks submissions for Organized Symposia for the 2015 AAEA & WAEA Joint Annual Meeting in San Francisco. Material previously presented cannot be accepted, and the submitting author will be asked to verify that the material has not been presented elsewhere.

Proposals are due by Thursday, January 15, 2015, and should be submitted using AAEA’s online Abstract Management System.

Organized Symposium sessions highlight ideas or works-in-progress on a topic involving cooperative or competing efforts by two or more panelists. Symposia may involve panel discussions of prepared questions, debates, roundtable meetings, or other formats. Formal paper presentations are not encouraged. If such presentations are proposed, the organizer should explain how they will fit into a tightly coherent theme. In all cases, at least half of the session time should be reserved for discussion among the panelists and between the panelists and the audience.

Symposia may offer discussions of policy issues, research methods, emerging research results, teaching or outreach topics, issues in professional organization, or other matters.

At least one proposer for the organized symposium must be a member of AAEA, and all presenters, speakers, and/or discussants at the Joint Annual Meeting must be members of AAEA and registered for the Joint Annual Meeting by May 27, 2015.

Proposals should include: session title, session rationale, names and contact information for the organizer and other participants, and a description of the symposium format that includes plans for discussion.

Notification of whether a proposal has been accepted will be sent by mid-March, or as soon as possible thereafter. Please contact Kristen Wright at kwright@aaea.org if you have any questions about submitting an Organized Symposium proposal.

Submit your Organized Symposia proposal in the online Abstract Management System.
