2018 - CAES Annual Meeting


2018 CAES Annual Meeting — July 28, 2018 — Vancover, BC

The CAES is holding its 2018 annual meeting as a one-day pre-conference event of the International Conference of Agricultural Economists (ICAE) 2018.

We invite you to join us on July 28, 2018 to take in the Presidential and Fellow addresses; the Annual Business Meeting; the Annual Awards Banquet; a session in which newly hired faculty at Canadian Ag Econ Departments as well as related government policy units, will introduce themselves and their research and policy interests/portfolios; and a Focus on Fellows session.

The last time the international event took place in Canada was in 1979 in Banff and the only other time it was held in North America was in California in 1997. Since it is unlikely to be held in Canada for another 40 years, this could be the only time in your career when the ICAE will be held in Canada.


Instead of organizing our own program, we strongly encourage members to submit to the ICAE 2018 professional program and take advantage this unique opportunity to network and exchange knowledge with agricultural economists from all over the world.


Submission deadline for Contributed Papers (Oral and Visual) and Organized Sessions for the ICAE program is January 15, 2018. Information can be found on the ICAE 2018 Conference Website.
