Abstract can cover either empirical or theoretical research. You can submit more than one abstract, but the maximum number of presentations per person in parallel sessions (not including policy sessions or panels) is limited to one. For long abstracts and those with tables and/or figures, we recommend that you upload your abstract as a pdf-file. To be included in the program presenters need to be registered for the conference by September 4 (confirmation of participation).
Policy session/Panel proposals
You are invited to propose a policy session or a panel. The aim of policy sessions and panels is to advance the use of benefit-cost analysis to support policymaking and to highlight current questions of major importance either in policymaking or research. The objective is to provide a forum of exchange between policymakers and academics and the sessions/panels are expected to be of interest to a broad audience. The expected format is short presentations followed by panel/roundtable discussions, and they are expected to include 3-4 contributions. Information:
- Submissions should include the following information:
- Proposed title of the session/panel
- Name(s) of organizer(s)
- A short description of the theme and its relevance
- For each speaker/contributor a short bio and a short statement of this person’s contribution to the session
- Organizer(s) must commit to attending the conference and to chair the session
- Organizer(s) is responsible for finding replacement(s) for speakers/contributors not being able to attend
- Organizer(s) is responsible for ensuring that speakers/contributors are aware that all session participants (organizer(s)/speakers/contributors) must register for the conference by August 31 (confirmation of participation), and that there are no financial resources to support policy sessions and panels.
