April 29-30, 2022
London School of Economics and Political Science
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 2022 European Meeting of the UEA is scheduled to take place at the London School of Economics (LSE) on Friday the 29th and Saturday the 30th of April 2022. We plan to hold the conference as an in-person event with all presenters attending the conference in person. Non-presenting participants will be able to join sessions virtually. The conference will run from approximately 9:00 to 18:00 local time on both days and include a reception on Friday night and two keynote lectures.
Given the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is difficult to predict what will be possible at the end of April 2022. If COVID-19 restrictions are such that a successful conference with in-person presentations is impossible, the conference will be held online using the same layout as the 2021 European Meeting of the UEA. In this case the conference will take place over three days from the 28th to the 30th of April 2022. A final decision on the format of the conference will be made and communicated in early March 2022 after acceptance decisions have been made and before the deadline for registration.

Submission: Please submit your paper or extended abstract through the online submission form at https://editorialexpress.com/conference/emuea2022/
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission Deadline: Friday, January 28, 2022. You will be notified at the beginning of March whether your submission has been accepted for the conference.
UEA Student Prize: The UEA awards prizes for the best student papers presented at its conferences. Papers where all co-authors are full-time PhD students at the date of the conference are eligible for the student prize. Papers that are co-authored by full-time PhD students and a co-author who is not a full-time researcher at a university or research institute are also eligible. Authors of such papers can email the chair of the student prize committee, Gabriel Ahlfeldt (LSE), if they are uncertain whether their paper is eligible. If you would like your paper to be considered by the student prize committee, please check the corresponding box on the submission page. All student papers will be presented as part of regular sessions rather than in separate student sessions. Student papers and presentations will be evaluated by the student prize committee and the results will be announced at the conference.
