Track Sessions Call for Proposals
The AAEA Executive Board invites Track Session proposals for the 2012 AAEA Annual Meeting in Seattle. Initial proposals need to be submitted by December 5, 2011, to Brian@aaea.org. Final, detailed submissions associated with each session are due by March 13, 2012. The AAEA Business Office will work with each Section that submits proposals on their final submission.
Tracks are a set of multiple sessions submitted by AAEA Sections, scheduled throughout the meeting and devoted to a common interest area or topic. The AAEA President determines the number of sessions allocated to each section. All Section leaders will be notified of their allocations in October 2011.
Section leaders are responsible for managing and submitting Track Session proposals. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a Track Session, please contact the chair of the Section for more information about the session topics that they are seeking. Proposals submitted to the AAEA Business Office by an individual will be referred back to the Section for approval and official submission.
AAEA has created a Track Session Outline form for Section Leaders to use when submitting their initial outlines in December. This form should be submitted for each session, by the leader of the sponsoring Section.
Specific Track Sessions can also be considered as Invited Paper sessions. These sessions need to be submitted through the abstract submission system as an Invited Paper session (see the call for Invited Paper Sessions for more information), and included with the initial Track Session proposals due in December, with an indication that it has also been submitted as an Invited Paper Session. If the proposed Invited Paper session is not accepted, it will still be included as a traditional Track Session.
