2009 NEUDC CONFERENCE
Tufts University, Medford, MA
November 7-8, 2009
The 2009 Northeast Universities Development Consortium (NEUDC) Conference is a major forum in development economics. NEUDC has organized annual conferences in development economics since 1967. The location and sponsorship of the annual NEUDC conference usually rotates among the organizing institutions: Boston University, Brown University, Cornell University, Harvard University, Tufts University, Williams College and Yale University. The 2009 Conference will be hosted by Tufts University's Department of Economics and will be held entirely in the Cabot Intercultural Center at Tufts University. Cabot is located at 170 Packard Avenue, Medford, MA 02155.
IMPORTANT DATES: August 3: Paper Submission Deadline Late September: Acceptance/Rejection Notification October 7: Early Registration Deadline October 16: Final Drafts Due October 30: Presentations Due
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Submissions can be processed electronically by registering through Tufts University NEUDC 2009 website at: http://ase.tufts.edu/econ/events/neudcConference.asp We welcome all papers that investigate topics in economic development. There will roughly be 26 sessions and we anticipate a total of 104 papers being presented. Only full drafts of papers will be considered. Please submit a paper with an abstract not exceeding 300 words for the August 3rd deadline. The abstract should include JEL codes. The final and complete version of all accepted papers must be received by October 16th. To ensure that all fonts, symbols, and equations appear the way they were originally typed, please submit your document in PDF format.
PAPERS ACCEPTED AS POSTERS: There will be space to display 20 posters during the conference dinner. In deciding whether to accept a submission as a conference paper or a poster, the selection committee will consider whether (i) the paper works well as a poster (its results that can be conveyed with a few striking graphs, figures, or tables) and (ii) the paper is too short for a full presentation. The committee will also reserve poster slots for papers that could not fit into conference sessions because of constraints of time.
PRESENTATIONS AND DISCUSSIONS: Presenters should create presentations that can be displayed using a computer since other modes of presenting material, such as overhead projectors, will not be available. Again, to ensure that all fonts, symbols, and equations appear the way they were originally typed, please submit your document in PDF format. Although all conference computers will carry Microsoft's Power Point software, certain fonts may not be displayed as they were intended if the presentation was created using a different version of the software. Presenters and discussants must submit their presentations electronically before October 30th. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a back up on a USB stick to the conference. Please use the following naming convention when submitting your presentations and discussions in advance: X_PRESENT_Y.pdf or X_DISCUSS_Y.pdf where X is your session number and Y is your last name.
