Final Call for Papers
53rd New Zealand Association of Economists Annual Conference
To be held at the Palmerston North Convention Centre
27 June – 29 June 2012

Extended period for submission: Abstracts are now due by Wednesday, 4 April

The New Zealand Association of Economists is calling for papers for its 53rd Annual Conference, to be held at the Palmerston North Convention Centre.

The deadline for submission of papers to the 2012 Conference has been extended to Wednesday 4 April. Abstracts can be submitted here.

Registration for the conference is now open. Registration can be done online here.

Submitters wishing to organise full sessions can indicate so on the on-line submission form, or can contact the organisers directly.

As in recent years, submitters are asked to submit a 1,000-word abstract of their papers. Submissions will be quality-assured on the basis of the abstracts, which will also be used to ration the limited spaces for oral presentations. To be considered as quality assured, a full paper must be submitted by 14 June.

At the 2012 conference, there will be a limited number of sessions with discussants. Submitters wishing to have their papers included in a discussant session are required to be available to act as a discussant in another session if required, and to have their full paper submitted by 7 June.

The conference will also feature an expanded poster session. Submissions not judged suitable for oral presentations may be included in the poster session. Poster presentations may also be appropriate for work in progress and student research.

Important dates are:

Monday, 26 March 2012 Conference registration opens
Wednesday, 4 April 2012 Abstracts due
By Thursday, 19 April 2012 Notification of acceptances
Thursday, 10 May 2012 Early-bird registration closes
