Information for Session Organizers

Individual Session Organizers
If you would like to organize one or two sessions on a specific topic and have speakers/presenters lined up, contact the conference organizer for approval. Individual papers must still go through the regular registration process using the above on-line registration form. However, the "Comments" section of the form should make reference to the special session (e.g., "this paper is part of a special session on International Trade Disputes organized by Prof. Jane Doe). The applicable submission deadlines are the same as for regular paper presenters.

Multi-Session Programs by Affiliate Organizations
Affiliate Organizations may submit blocks of sessions for inclusion in the program. They should contact the conference organizer or the program assistant by February 15 to state their intentions of doing so. At this point they should indicate (a) how many sessions they would like to sponsor and organize; (b) on which days they want these sessions to be scheduled and the preferred time slots; and (c) if these sessions will require particular preparations by the on-site organizer at our conference venue (e.g., catering, presentation tools). By March 12 at the latest, the conference organizer must receive a structured text file according to these guidelines that specify the session titles, session chairs, paper titles and authors, and possibly discussants.

CEA Sponsorship of Study Groups
The Canadian Economics Association will make available up to $2000 per study group. The funds can be used to organize sessions at the CEA meetings at UBC, or they can be used for other initiatives. For example, they can be used to fund part of the costs of an annual area group conference, like those of the CETC, CESG, CMSG, CREE, or CPEG. To receive these funds, the CEA asks that you: (1) organize one or more sessions at the CEA meetings; (2) have at least 10 CEA members in your conference/group; (3) acknowledge CEA sponsorship on your conference program and similar documents; (4) create and maintain links between your group and the CEA web pages. To apply, write to the conference organizer.
