Paper submissions are accepted starting December 1st, 2017. Submission deadline is Friday, February 16, 2018. The submission deadline has now passed and the submission system is closed.
Please review the Call for Papers before submitting a paper. In particular, please take note of the requirement for the length of the abstract (250 words), the rule against presenting more than one paper per author, and the submission deadline.
When you are ready to submit a paper, use the button below to log in to your CEA account with your username and password, and then click on the "Conference Papers" button in the menu on the left. If you are not yet in our CEA database, you can either become a CEA member first, or you can create a non-member account. Please click on the appropriate buttons below.
Before you can submit a paper through our online system, you may be prompted to complete missing personal information in your profile. In this case, please click on the "Profile" button and provide the missing information (such as a missing e-mail address). Then return to the "Conference Papers" page.
When papers are accepted or rejected, the author who submitted the paper will be notified through a computer-generated e-mail message. This is the only confirmation you will receive. You can check on your paper's status anytime through the link embedded in your original submission acknowledgment e-mail. Specifically, the CEA will not provide any formal invitation letters to paper presenters. For conference participants from outside North America, if you require documentation of your conference attendance for visa purposes, present the paper acceptance e-mail to a Canadian consulate and request that they contact the CEA Program Office (see conference home page) if they require confirmation.
Authors are encouraged to provide web access to their conference papers using PDF files.
If you have a PDF file of your conference paper that you wish to make public, you can either host this file on the CEA's economics.ca server or provide a link (URL) to that PDF file on your own web server. Either way, first you need to log in to your CEA account (using your CEA account number and password). Next, click on the "Conference Papers" item in the menu bar on the left of the screen; this will display your conference paper registration for the 2018 conference. At the bottom of the page is a section "Actions" where you can either upload a PDF file to the economics.ca server using the "Choose File" button or enter a URL (complete with http://..../...pdf) to the PDF file hosted elsewhere. Then click "Go!" to complete the file upload or URL registration. Once a link or PDF file has been provided, it will appear in the preliminary conference programme the next day. Our preliminary conference programme is updated only once a day.
