AAEA at 2022 ASSA Annual Meeting

The 2022 Annual Meeting will be held on January 7-9, 2022 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). In light of the recent surge in hospitalizations due to COVID-19 and rapid spread of the Delta variant, the Association’s Executive Committee has decided that ASSA 2022 will be an all-virtual event.

Schedule (Eastern Time)
Times have been adjusted this year for the virtual format.
10:00 am – 12:00 pm -- Sessions
12:15 pm – 2:15 pm -- Sessions
2:30 pm – 3:30 pm -- Events
3:45 pm – 5:45 pm -- Sessions
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm -- Events


Virtual Platform
As an attendee, you will be able to access sessions and events from a desktop browser or the event app on a mobile device. You will receive a username and password when you register for the meetings. The virtual platform allows you to build a personal daily schedule, receive reminders and updates, search the program, take notes, and more. The app will become available for download in the first week of December.

Job Market Interviews
The job interviews have always been a central and significant part of the ASSA Annual meeting. Due to the cancellation of the in-person meeting, the AEA will not be providing job interview services as part of the virtual meeting. We hope, however, that you will continue to take advantage of the JOE Network for your job listings and letter writing, as well as the application module that includes a tool for scheduling interviews with applicants. The AEA also continues to provide the Signaling and Job Market Scramble services as well as the EconTrack Job Information Board. The Ad Hoc Committee on the Job Market offers guidance and periodic updates on conditions in the job market.

"Toward a Circular Corn Belt: Science and Stakeholders, Landscapes and Leadership"

Agriculture faces a suite of urgent challenges. Current production systems are unlikely to simultaneously address the needs of a growing human population, food insecurity, climate change, and environmental degradation. No person or discipline will be able to solve these challenges alone. New transdisciplinary science efforts are needed to design, build, test, and deploy new agricultural systems that are regenerative, biodiverse, climate-resilient, equitable, and economically sustainable in addition to productive. I share how my teams are working with farmers, industry, government, and other stakeholders to create new systems in Iowa, and suggest lessons that may be more broadly applicable to agricultural change efforts elsewhere.
