2013 Annual Conference

AREUEA’s Annual Meeting is held in January in conjunction with the meetings of the Allied Social Science Associations. This year, AREUEA organizes and co-organizes twenty-four sessions during the three day conference, in which selected participants report on research in progress or recently completed. Additionally, AREUEA hosts a Doctoral Session which invited distinguished scholars share their insights and wisdom with students on topics such as career planning, publishing, and research. Furthermore selected students can present their current research at the doctoral poster session which is held in conjunction of a reception in their honor.

Every year AREUEA hosts a joint session with the American Economic Association (AEA) and a joint session with the American Finance Association (AFA) in which topics of mutual interests are presented by distinguished scholars from both organizations. This year, AREUEA also hosts a special panel on Property Markets, Financial Stability, and Macroprudential Policies, which is jointly sponsored by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). The Presidential Luncheon is featured on the last full day of the conference and is hosted in honor of AREUEA’s outgoing President. In addition to the Presidential address, AREUEA recognizes the generous sponsors of the organization in addition to announcing the recipients of the George Bloom Award, Edwin Mills Best Paper Award, Real Estate Economics Best Referee Awards, and the Homer Hoyt Institutes Dissertation Award.
