Paper Submission

2023 National Conference Paper Submission Access

The submission deadline is Friday, February 3rd, midnight EST.

We also invite submissions to AREUEA’s Junior Scholars Program (JSP), which is open to anyone who graduated with their PhD in 2018 or later, as well as advanced graduate students. This program will have three dedicated sessions on the first morning of the National Conference.  In each session, three to four junior scholars will present an early-stage research project or paper, each of which will be discussed by a senior scholar. The mentor-mentee pairings will continue to meet at least three times over the 2023-2024 academic year to discuss developments in the focal paper, as well as other questions the mentee may have regarding professional development. The program will be open to papers on all real estate and urban economics topics.

Junior scholars interested in being mentees should submit their papers through the National Conference submission portal (link above) by the same deadline. They should choose “JSP” as the submission type and indicate in the remarks section how they would benefit from the program. AREUEA conference submissions require AREUEA membership, but JSP applicants can request to have their membership fees waived by emailing [email protected].
