April 29 - May 1, 2021
The Urban Economics Association (UEA) invites the submission of high-quality papers dealing with the economics of cities, housing, real estate, transportation, local public good provision, the spatial distribution of activities, economic geography, and urban or regional policy. The Urban Economics Association seeks to promote participation and excellence in academic research in urban and regional economics.
The conference will be online and run from approximately 14:00 to 19:00 Central European Time from Thursday April 29 to Saturday May 1, 2021. The online platform for the conference will be organised by Copenhagen Business School. For more information, please visit the conference website at: https://urbaneconomics.org/meetings/emuea2021/
Program Committee: Ferdinand Rauch (Oxford, Chair), Giacomo Ponzetto (CREI, Past Chair), Yanos Zylberberg (Bristol, Vice Chair), Gabriel Ahlfedlt (LSE), Adrien Bilal (Harvard), Marius Brülhart (Lausanne), Gharad Bryan (LSE), Gabrielle Fack (Paris Dauphine), Andreas Fuster (Swiss National Bank), Naomi Hausman (Hebrew), Ines Helm (Stockholm), Camille Hémet (Ecole Normale Superieure), Matthias Hoelzlein (Notre Dame), Niclas Moneke (Oxford), Joan Monras (UPF), David Nagy (CREI), Lindsay Relihan (LSE), Clara Santamaria (Carlos III), Marta Santamaria (Warwick), Olmo Silva (LSE), Lin Tian (INSEAD), Clemence Tricaud (UCLA Anderson), Philip Ushchev (HSE St Petersburg).
Submission: Please submit your paper or extended abstract through the online submission form at https://editorialexpress.com/conference/emuea2021/
We accept the submission of extended abstracts. However, all else equal, preference will be given to completed papers.
Instead of submitting an individual paper, you can also propose an entire 4-paper session. Submitting a session provides an opportunity to network with colleagues and shape your session in the way you find most appealing. Papers in complete sessions will still be vetted individually as the scientific committee reserves the right to regroup papers with other sessions. We encourage including in proposed sessions submissions by researchers whose primary affiliation is in an allied field (e.g. labor, public, trade, development, etc.) but whose paper has clear and strong relevance to urban economists. To submit a session please first submit each paper through the Conference Maker website and then send the proposed session, including names and paper titles to email@example.com.
Submission Deadline: Friday, February 26, 2021. You will be notified in early April whether your submission has been accepted for the conference.
UEA Student Prize: If you are a current full-time PhD student and would like your paper to be considered for the UEA Student Paper Prize, please choose the area "Student Paper Prize Competition" when submitting your paper. A paper is eligible only if all (co-)authors are full-time PhD students at the date of the conference. Papers submitted to the Student Paper Prize Competition will be presented as part of regular sessions. The presentations will be evaluated by a prize committee and the results will be announced on the last day of the conference. See past award winners at https://urbaneconomics.org/meetings/awards.html.
