The Canadian Economics Association (CEA) Annual Conference for 2011 will be held at the University of Ottawa. Conference dates are Friday, June 3 through Sunday, June 5, with some sessions of affiliated organizations on Thursday, June 2.
The CEA invites anyone wishing to present a paper at the 2011 Conference to submit an abstract by Friday, February 18, 2011. Paper submissions are accepted starting December 1st, 2010 through the web interface at my.economics.ca.
All fields of specialization within economics will be considered. We expect an acceptance rate of about 75%. You will receive a notification once your paper is accepted or rejected. If your paper is accepted, it is expected that you will be prepared to serve as a discussant and/or program chair at other sessions within your areas of interest.
You may present no more than one paper at the Conference, including an invited paper or invited participation in a panel. Please submit only one paper for consideration. Any additional submissions beyond your first will be discarded. A co-author may present another paper co-authored by you but must submit the paper separately.
In addition to the abstract, you may submit full-length papers by providing a Web link to a corresponding PDF file, or by uploading a PDF file to the conference web site. Each presenter is required to provide the session chair and discussant with an electronic copy of the paper at least two weeks prior to the conference.
All presenters must register for the Conference. Registration can be done online through the conference Web site using the "Advance Registration" link. You may register without joining the CEA but we strongly recommend joining the CEA at the same time, which provides additional benefits and can be done at no extra cost. You may wait to register until you find out whether your paper is accepted but paper presenters must register for the Conference by April 6th, 2011, otherwise your paper will be removed from the conference schedule.
The CEA Program Chair for the 2011 conference is Professor Mike Veall, Department of Economics, McMaster University. Please direct all inquires and correspondence to the CEA Executive Director, Anne Motte, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Postal Address:
Any member can propose a special session or sessions which may have invited papers. If you are interested in this possibility, please contact Anne Motte or Mike Veall before January 28, 2011. See the "Session Organizers" link on the conference web site for further information.
