From: Peter L. Rousseau, Secretary-Treasurer
Subject: Paper Deadline for AEA 2016 and Other Announcements


Call for Sessions and Papers for the 2016 AEA Meeting. The deadline for submissions to be considered for the January 2016 AEA Meeting program in San Francisco is April 1, 2015 for individual papers and April 15, 2015 for complete sessions. See the call at:
https://www.aeaweb.org/Annual_Meeting/submissions.php.

Econ-Harmony helps prospective submitters of individual papers for the AEA Annual Meeting find others with similar interests who might join them to form a complete session submission, and provides an opportunity to volunteer as a session chair. Twenty-five percent of submitted complete sessions and 14% of submitted individual papers appeared on the 2014 Program. Econ-Harmony is available at
https://www.aeaweb.org/econ-harmony/.

Committee on Economic Statistics (AEAStat) will sponsor three sessions on economic measurement at the January 2016 ASSA Meetings in San Francisco. The Committee solicits both individual papers and proposals for sessions of three or four papers, with preference given to session proposals. The Committee is interested in receiving submissions in any area of economic data and statistics. For more information or a list of papers selected for past AEAStat sponsored sessions go to
https://www.aeaweb.org/committees/AEAStat/annual_meeting.php. Abstracts are due by May 1, 2015 to Robert Moffitt, Chair, Committee on Economic Statistics, aea_stat@aeaweb.org. Submissions should be PDF files and include name, institutional affiliation, and email address of all participants.

Committee on Economic Education (CEE) Calls for Papers for 2016. The AEA CEE is sponsoring a session of research papers on economic education at any level (undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate, or pre-college) at the 2016 AEA Meetings in San Francisco. Papers from this session will appear in the Papers and Proceedings, subject to editorial review and approval. To have a paper considered, submit an abstract of 250-500 words by April 1, 2015 to Tisha Emerson, Baylor University,
Tisha_Nakao@baylor.edu. Abstracts should be written to convince the reader that papers are completed or in an advanced stage. For more information, go to https://www.aeaweb.org/committees/AEACEE/call_for.php.

The CEE will also sponsor a session of research papers on economic and financial education at any level (undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate, or pre-college) at the 2016 AEA Meetings. Papers from this session will be slated for publication in the Journal of Economic Education, subject to editorial review and approval. To have a paper considered for inclusion in the session, submit an abstract of 250-500 words by May 1, 2015 to Georg Schaur, The University of Tennessee-Knoxville,
gschaur@utk.edu.

The CEE will also sponsor a poster session at the 2016 AEA Meetings devoted to active learning strategies across the economics curriculum. Instead of papers, session presenters will prepare large visual poster summaries of their work, which will be mounted in an exhibition room to allow presenters to talk directly with session participants. Although we encourage presenters to include evidence that their strategy enhances learning, quantifiable evidence is not required. Presenters should describe the teaching strategy, emphasize its originality, and provide sufficient information so that session participants can apply it in their own classrooms. Posters marketing textbooks, commercial software, or similar materials are not eligible for the session. Proposals are limited to two pages, are due by April 1, 2015, and should include contact information for all authors. Send proposals to: Steven Cobb (
scobb@unt.edu)
