International Conferences

The American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association (AREUEA) typically organizes three conferences a year (ASSA, National, and International), as well as partners with other organizations and agencies, to offer multiple opportunities designed to provide open forums for the exchange of ideas and the dissemination of research relevant to applied decision making in real estate finance and urban economics.

Held for the first time in 1992, AREUEA's annual International Conference over the years has become the leading conference to address global developments in international topics that affect real estate and urban economics. The AREUEA membership now includes individuals and libraries from over 45 countries around the world.

2022 Tokyo Conference (joint with AsRES)
August 4-7, 2022

The 2022 Tokyo conference will bring together leading researchers and practitioners in the field of real estate from all over the world. The aim is to enhance interdisciplinary discussions pursuing the conference theme, “Towards Sustainable Real Estate.” The conference will take place in Tokyo — the capital of Japan since 1603 and the world’s largest megacity — that makes every effort to integrate long-standing traditions from the past with sustainable innovations in the future.

The 2022 Tokyo conference will be either in-person or online on a day-by-day basis. Currently, the first three days (August 4-6) will be in-person and the last day (August 7) will be virtual. The Conference will be hosted by Chuo University and the Japanese Association of Real Estate Financial Engineering (JAREFE).

Entry restrictions to Japan were significantly relaxed on April 8, 2022. In particular, eligible travelers from the US and Canada can bypass the quarantine period if fully vaccinated and boosted with an appropriate vaccine. A foreign national will need to go through the following process:

  1. register for the conference, including accompanying persons. The local organizer (JAREFE) will register the participating and accompanying persons in the ERFS system and prepare the necessary documents.
  2. apply for a short-term visa. A US citizen can mail your application form, passport, and ERFS information to the nearest Japanese consulate. It currently takes approximately two weeks to obtain a visa.
  3. obtain the negative result of a COVID-19 test conducted within 72 hours of the international flight departure. The airline company will check the test result at check-in.

For complete details, please see: You can also monitor the latest COVID-19 cases here.

Paper Submission, Registration, and Website

We extended the submission deadline from April 15 to April 30 in response to the relaxed travel restrictions to Japan. The notification of accepted papers will be postponed to May 20. 

Paper submission and registration will be available on February 1, 2022, at the joint conference web site: Papers can be in the early stages but submissions need to be at minimum a detailed abstract along with some preliminary results. Completed drafts are also welcome. Papers can have been submitted to journals, but should not yet be at the R&R stage. Please select submission type, “AREUEA-AsRES Two-Step Review.”
