PEP publicizes news and events from the development research community that may be of interest to its members.
The National Bureau for Economic Research (NBER) Development Economics Program (DEV) and the Bureau for Research in the Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD) invite paper submissions for their joint Fall 2017 meeting to be held December 8-9 in Cambridge, United States.
The program, on the subject of economic development, will be selected by Ray Fisman, Penny Goldberg, Rema Hanna, Michael Kremer and Duncan Thomas. All papers presented at the conference will be selected through this open submissions process. Only completed papers will be considered for the program.
The conference will last about a day and a half, there will be no parallel sessions and presentations will follow a standard seminar format. There will not be formal discussants but there will be ample time for discussion of the research during the presentations. As a result, there will only be a small number of presentations.
Travel and hotel expenses will be covered for one author per paper that is presented at the conference, for members of the NBER Development Economics program and for BREAD Fellows. All reimbursements will follow NBER travel reimbursement guidelines.
Submission deadline: September 29, 2017 (6 a.m. EST)
Papers should be submitted at: http://papers.nber.org/confsubmit/backend/cfp?id=DEVf17
