Call for Papers

12th Meeting of the Urban Economics Association

At the 64th Annual North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International (RSAI)
November 8-11, 2017
Vancouver, Canada

The Urban Economics Council invites the submission of high quality papers dealing with the economics of cities, housing, real state, local public good provision, transportation, and the distribution of economic activity in space for a series of sessions at the Annual North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International (RSAI) organized by the North American Regional Science Council (NARSC). These urban economics sessions constitute the Annual Meetings of the Urban Economics Association (UEA).

Potential presenters are requested to submit only one paper each as the number of papers that can be included in these sessions is limited. Papers submitted to the UEA special sessions must not be submitted to any other session of the Annual North American Meetings of RSAI. However, submissions that are not accepted for a UEA special session will automatically be considered for a session in the general NARSC program. You will be notified around July 15, 2017 whether your paper is accepted to a UEA session or another session.

Students who would like to participate in the NARSC Graduate Student Paper Competition can indicate this during the submission process. All required documents need to be included in the pdf of the article. Please consult the NARSC website on eligibility and requirements at http://www.narsc.org/newsite/awards-prizes/narsc-student-competitions/.

Program Committee: Morris Davis (Rutgers, chair), Stephen Billings (Colorado-Boulder) and Laurent Gobillon (Paris).

Local Organizer: Thomas Davidoff (UBC).

Submission: Please submit a paper or extended abstract through the online submission form at https://www.mymeetingsavvy.com/uea/.

Submission Deadline: June 15, 2017 (2 weeks before the NARSC deadline).
