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 virtual meeting will run from approximately 11:00 to 16:00 US Eastern Time from Thursday October 14 to Saturday October 16, 2021. The online platform for the conference will be organized by the University of Arizona and Arizona State University.

Submission: Please submit your paper or extended abstract through the online submission form at https://editorialexpress.com/conference/uea2021/
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, July 23, 2021. You will be notified by September 9 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. To be eligible, all co-authors of the paper must be full-time PhD students at the time of the conference. 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 on the last day of the conference.
