AAEA Post-Conference Workshop
We would like to provide a quick overview of our AAEA Post-conference Workshop on Behavioral and Experimental Economics, which took place July 29th at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. This Post-conference Workshop was organized by Carola Grebitus (FSN Member-at-Large) and Christiane Schroeter (FSN Chair). Brenna Ellison (FSN Member-at-Large); Jayson Lusk (AAEA President-Elect); Bidisha Mandal; and Kent Messer served as the organizing committee. Our workshop sold out, with 105 attendees and a waitlist.
Call for Proposals:
The AAEA is accepting submissions for the AAEA Organized Symposium at the Annual Conference of the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society (AARES) in Canberra, Australia, February 2-5, 2016.
The Organized Symposium will be allocated a session 1.5 hours in length during the AARES general program. Organizers should submit a proposal for a complete session that will take up the full time period. The format of the session may involve panel discussions of prepared questions, debates, roundtable meetings, paper presentations, or other formats. Whichever format is proposed, the organizer should ensure the presentations fit into a tightly coherent theme and there is plenty of time for discussion.
Call for Applications:
The Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society (AARES) and the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (AAEA) through the AAEA Trust will jointly offer this travel award to attend the 2016 AARES Conference in Canberra, Australia. It is available to members of AARES or AAEA that currently reside in North America. Applicants for the award can be a member of either AARES or AAEA, but must be a member of AARES to participate in the conference.
