The leadership of the Food and Ag Marketing Policy Section (FAMPS) of the AAEA is organizing track sessions for the 2017 AAEA Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, July 30-August 1, 2017.
We are asking that you submit your proposed track section ideas (send to: Jane.Kolodinsky@uvm.edu and firstname.lastname@example.org ) by Friday, November 11th.
Although we have some time before proposals are due, it may be helpful to start putting your ideas together and seeking out potential participants.
Track sessions with presentations must fit one the following formats:
- Four presentations with no discussants or panelists,
- Three presentations with a maximum of one discussant, or
- Two presentations with a maximum of two discussants or panelists.
- In sessions without presentations, a maximum of five participants may be included as panelist
IN ADDITION, there is the opportunity to organize joint track sessions with other AAEA sections. If you have a session/paper idea and you want some help finding potential collaborators, let me know and we can try to help.
If you have never been part of a track session, they are a great opportunity to bring together interesting researchers and research topics! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact chair Jane Kolodinsky (Jane.Kolodinsky@uvm.edu) or chair-elect Alessandro Bonanno (email@example.com )
FAMPS exists to facilitate networking and sharing of research ideas among AAEA members with similar interests. FAMPS seeks to foster informed economic debate, research and communication about food and agricultural marketing policies of current and emerging significance, in both national and international contexts.
