The Development of the American Economy workshop will take place from July 12- 15, 2021. Given the complications presented by the pandemic, this year's Summer Institute will be held in a virtual format. Chris Meissner, John Parman, and Allison Shertzer have kindly agreed to organize this year's DAE SI program. As always, we would like to have a range of topics covered. This year we are organizing two types of sessions:
1) Regular sessions (50 minute presentations)
2) Egg-timer sessions (10 minute presentations without Q&A). The egg-timer sessions are a good way to provide more people with an opportunity to showcase their work. Time limits will be strictly enforced.
You can apply for either or both sessions. If you have a paper that you would like to present, please upload a copy of your paper, proposal or detailed abstract here by 11:59 pm PDT on April 5, 2021: http://papers.nber.org/confsubmit/backend/cfp?id=SI21DAE.
Submissions need not be completed papers, but full paper submissions may have an advantage in selection for the 50-minute regular sessions. Please note in the comments section of the submission page if you would like your paper considered specifically for the egg-timer session (rather than a 50-minute session). All papers that are not selected for a 50-minute session will be considered for egg-timer sessions.
If you have questions regarding other aspects of the Summer Institute, please contact Rob Shannon in the NBER's Conference Department, 617/868-3900 or email@example.com.
