2017 Call for Abstracts: Selected Presentation Papers and Posters
AAEA seeks submissions for Selected Presentations for the 2017 AAEA Annual Meeting in Chicago. Selected Presentations are a submission category that represents both Selected Papers and Selected Posters. All submissions are reviewed and accepted together, and only after acceptance are the submissions designated as a paper or poster. At the time of submission, individuals will have the option for their submission to be considered as a poster-only. There is no paper only option.

Abstracts must be received by Thursday, January 12, 2017, and should be submitted using AAEA’s online Abstract Management System. Material previously presented at other meetings cannot be accepted, and the submitting author will be asked to verify that the material has not been presented elsewhere.

Call for Papers
