Call for Selected Paper Submissions

Selected Paper Abstracts - Due February 21

Selected Paper sessions may be on any topic in agricultural, food or resource economics. Select paper proposals may include original research, policy analysis, teaching or extension.

The abstract must be submitted by the presenter. CAES members are NOT required to provide full papers prior to the conference to participate.

CAES members should submit selected paper abstracts through the CEA online submission system. Submissions will be assessed and accepted/rejected based on a blind peer review process done internally within the CAES. Accepted papers will be organized into CAES selected paper sessions at the conference.

Submitters can use the link located on the calls page: http://economics.ca/2014/en/submit.php.

Be sure to select "CAES" as the affiliate organization (at "Study Groups" and in step 8 of the submission process) to have the abstract considered for the CAES program. CAES members who are not CEA members are not required to become CEA members and can submit papers as per the instructions below. CAES members who have a CEA account should submit abstracts using this account even if you are not a member of CEA (see instructions below).

How to submit one abstract to each selected paper program: Please submit to the CEA program using the online system then email your submission for the CAES program to . In your email please indicate that you have already submitted an abstract to the CEA program using the online system and would like to submit an abstract to the CAES program via the email. Please include in your email the items that were requested when uploading your abstract for the CEA program (title, abstract, co-authors, web link if available, etc).

Note that authors who share more than one paper may submit all of these papers as long as the submitter (and therefore presenter) for each paper is different. The submitter/presenter of an accepted paper is required to register even if it turns out that a co-author ends up presenting the paper in the end.

You can register without submitting a paper:

Go to http://economics.ca/2014/en/registration.php and click the "Register and Pay" button at the bottom under the line "Members of the CAES who are not also CEA members".
