Call for Papers

First Call for Papers
54th New Zealand Association of Economists Annual Conference
To be held at the Amora Hotel, Wellington
3 July – 5 July 2013

The New Zealand Association of Economists is calling for papers for its 54th Annual Conference. A flyer with the call for papers is available here. The conference is being run in conjunction with a symposium put on by the Productivity Hub at Te Papa on Tuesday 2 July. Abstracts for either the NZAE conference or the NZPC workshop, can be submitted here.

Submitters need to submit a 1,000-word abstract of their papers for either an oral presentation or the poster session. Full papers are not required at this stage, but for a paper to be considered as quality assured or to be eligible for the Statistics New Zealand or New Zealand Economic Policy prizes, a full paper must be submitted by 13 June.

We encourage individuals to present their research in the poster session. Some research is particularly suited to the visual style of a poster presentation; the poster session can also be suitable for work in progress and speculative research. We particularly welcome student research in the poster session.

Submitters are welcome to submit up to three papers. If we receive more submissions than we have room for on the programme, we may restrict some presenters to a single oral presentation. In that event, we will contact presenters to ask which paper they would prefer to include. This limit would apply to the number of papers presented by any one person, and not to the number of papers on which he or she is a co-author.

Please note that presenters whose papers are accepted for an oral presentation or poster must register by 16 May in order to remain on the programme. After this date, the registration fee is non-refundable.

Monday 1 April 2013 – Conference registration opens
Wednesday 3 April 2013 – Abstracts due
By Friday 26 April 2013 – Notification of Acceptances
Thursday 16 May 2013 – Registration deadline for presenters; Early-bird registration deadline
