AAEA seeks submissions for Organized Symposia for the 2017 AAEA Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL. Proposals are due by Thursday, January 12, 2017, and should be submitted using AAEA’s online submission 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 discouraged, nonetheless 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. 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.
At least one proposer for the organized symposium must be a member of AAEA, and all presenters, speakers, and/or discussants at the Annual Meeting must be members of AAEA and registered for the Annual Meeting by Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
If you have any questions about submitting an Organized Symposia session proposal, please contact Lauren Seward at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (414) 918-3190.
