Call for Papers

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 North American Meeting of the UEA is scheduled to take place at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. on Friday the 30th of September and Saturday the 1st of October 2022. Public health conditions allowing, we plan to conduct the conference entirely in person. The conference will run from approximately 9:00 to 18:00 local time on both days and include a reception on Friday night.

Submission: Please submit your paper or extended abstract through the online submission form at https://editorialexpress.com/conference/uea2022/

We accept the submission of extended abstracts. However, all else equal, preference will be given to completed papers.

In addition to submitting an individual paper, you can also propose an entire 4-paper session. Papers in complete sessions will still be vetted individually, and 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 uea2022@urbaneconomics.org.

Submission Deadline: Saturday, June 18, 2022. You will be notified in late July 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, Alvin Murphy (Arizona State), 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. Student papers and presentations will be evaluated by the student prize committee and the results will be announced at the conference.
