Submission: Please submit your paper or extended abstract through the online submission form at https://editorialexpress.com/conference/uea2024/

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 uea2024@urbaneconomics.org.

Submission Deadline: Friday, June 7, 2024. 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, Jonathan Hall (Alabama), if they are uncertain whether their paper is eligible. Student papers and presentations will be evaluated by the student prize committee and the results will be announced at the conference.
