Individual Session Organizers
Multi-Session Programs by Affiliate Organizations
In the case of a "regular" 3 paper session, the session organizer must ask presenters to submit their papers through the regular process using the online system. The deadline to submit a paper is February 10. In the "Comments" section of the form, the presenter should make reference to the organized session (e.g., "this paper is part of an organized session by the Economist Group). The applicable submission deadlines are the same as for regular paper presenters.
By February 10 at the latest, the conference organizer must receive a structured text file that will specify the session titles, session chairs, paper titles and authors, and possibly discussants (firstname.lastname@example.org). List of author names must include affiliation and indicate which author is the presenter, as these sessions will have to be entered into the online system.
CEA Sponsorship of Study Groups
In order to receive funding for a given year study groups must organize sessions at the annual CEA conference. The quantity and quality of such sessions will be relevant in assessing whether a grant is made and assessing the amount of the grant. Study groups can hold meetings distinct from the CEA annual conference but not in a manner that would harm participation in the CEA conference (for example, if a study group held a conference at the time of the CEA meeting in a different location, it may disqualify itself from funding).
Study group coordinators must be willing to serve on the program committee or ensure that a representative of the study group will serve if asked by the program chair. A study group must have at least 10 CEA members. Study groups are expected to appropriately acknowledge CEA support and to cooperate on matters relating to marketing and communication including maintaining links to the CEA website on their websites.
Study group awards will be provided on a competitive basis at the judgment of the President-Elect who must base such judgment on the above criteria and who may seek input from others as appropriate. Payment of the grant will be made only to the study group itself (for which the study group would require a bank account) or to a university or other appropriate organization, not to private individuals.
