LERA Winter Meeting
January 5-7, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA
in conjunction with the ASSA/AEA

Guidelines Below

Deadline March 9, 2017

Thank you for your interest in submitting a paper abstract for consideration by the Program Committee. The committee will only consider submissions with complete contact information for all authors and and co-authors. We encourage you to collect this information in a Word (or other) document, and copy it into this submission form.

This form is to submit an abstract (up to 300 words) of your research paper to be considered by the LERA Program Committee for inclusion in an accepted session on the program where there might be a natural fit topically, and if space allows within the session. If the Program Committee does not find a space for your paper topically where space allows in the regular program sessions, your abstract may be forwarded to the Poster Session Chair for consideration for LERA Best Posters.

(Please note that with so many complete session proposals submitted each year, submitting a paper ABSTRACT for consideration of inclusion throughout accepted session proposals may not result in your paper being accepted, because there are typically too many complete, i.e. 'full of participants', session proposals submitted and too few 'holes' in which to insert single paper abstracts into an accepted session. You have a better chance of participation in the meeting by submitting a complete session proposal than a single paper abstract.)

1. Please submit paper title, and abstract (up to 300 words) of the paper (both required). You may submit a longer description of the paper (up to 500 words) if you wish.

2. Please list complete author and co-author information (affiliations, mailing addresses, email addresses), as well as a phone number for the presenter (who is also presumably the submitter).

3. Please list paper co-authors (if more than one) in the appropriate 'author order', so that we may list them correctly in the printed program.

4. If you have other information to submit about this session that will not 'fit' neatly into the e-form, please include it at the very end of the e-form in 'other comments and notes'.

5. A copy of your proposal will be emailed to you after you submit this form. You may wish to print or electronically keep this email as your record of submission.

STOP! Do you have complete information (paper title, abstract, contact information for all authors, etc.) before you begin? You will not be able to save this form and come back to it.

Paper Details, Presenter, and Authors

Please fill in information about each Paper below. The paper may have co-authors to list in addition to the presenter of the paper.

PAPER WITH MULTIPLE AUTHORS? If YES, you must list ALL authors/co-authors, IN AUTHOR ORDER, so that we may reproduce this accurately in the program, and include the appropriate affiliations and contact information for each author/co-author in the list. Please click the radio button indicating which author is presenting the paper. **Program Committee will not consider paper proposals that have incomplete author information.**
