New for 2024 FAMPS Section Poster Competition

FAMPS Section will host an inaugural poster session at the 2024 Annual Meeting.  The objective of the poster session is to provide a forum for researchers, particularly graduate students and early-career faculty, to be recognized for innovative and high-quality research in poster sessions.  This recognition and networking opportunity could be helpful to some researchers at the beginning stages of their career.

The details for the poster session are the following:

  • FAMPS will provide two awards:
    • a $250 prize for the best poster in which the lead author is a graduate student
    • a $250 prize for the best poster in which the lead author has a doctorate degree
  • Requirements:  The lead author for each submission must be a FAMPS member and must register and attend the 2024 AAEA Annual Meeting in-person.
  • Judging:  FAMPS leadership will have three researchers to judge the competition during the poster session on Monday from 4:15-5:30 PM.
  • Logistics:  Posters accepted in the FAMPS competition will have a symbol on their poster board.  The names of the poster winners will be announced during Awards Ceremony on Monday night.  Winners will need to stop by the Registration Desk on Tuesday morning to provide mailing address information for the checks.

Please contact with any questions.
