Graduate Student Competition

To encourage the presence/participation of graduate students we are holding a special competition limited to graduate students. From the papers submitted by graduate students, we will select at least one paper and include it on the program. Please note that due to declining budgets, we may not be able to reimburse travel expenses for the graduate student competition winner as we have done in past years.

The papers submitted but not selected through this competition will be added to the stack of general submissions.

Submission deadline:  The deadline for submission is the same as for general conference submissions.

Eligibility:  The author or authors must all be graduate students at the time of the conference.  Joint work with faculty members is not eligible for the graduate student competition, but is of course welcome under general submissions.

General participation:  We have been very pleased with the response in previous years and hope to duplicate it this year. This is a very friendly atmosphere at which you will be exposed to the ongoing work of the most energetic researchers in the area of empirical international trade.  Graduate students whose papers are not selected will have the option of participating as discussants, and are of course free to attend even if they are not on the program. 

Please pass this information on to other graduate students who might be interested.
