APPAM to Sponsor Sessions at 11th Annual WEAI Conference
April 8, 2014 10:30 AM
APPAM is sponsoring several conference sessions at next year’s Western Economic Association International’s (WEAI) Pacific Rim Conference. Maureen Pirog, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, is requesting papers from APPAM members and will be organizing the sessions. The four-day conference will be held January 8–11, 2015, in Wellington, New Zealand and is hosted by Victoria University of Wellington and Massey University.
Keynote speakers are sponsored by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand and the New Zealand Treasury:
Robert F. Engle, New York University Stern School of Business, recipient of the 2003 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.
Christopher A. Sims, Princeton University, recipient of the 2011 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.
David Card, University of California, Berkeley, recipient of the 1995 John Bates Clark Medal.
Pirog is requesting papers that cover any topic within policy analysis and management be submitted by June 25, 2014. She will be organizing the sponsored sessions from the selection of submitted papers. Full panels will also be considered on any topic within policy analysis and management; panels with at least three papers, three discussants, and a chair will receive strong preference.
If your paper or panel is accepted, you will be notified by WEAI to register. The registration fee for APPAM session participants is the same as for WEAI members.
APPAM members should direct all paper and panel submissions, as well as any questions, to Maureen Pirog.
