NBER Macroeconomics Annual
Call for Proposals for the 28th NBER Macro Annual ConferenceApril 12 and 13, 2013
We are inviting proposals for the NBER's 28th Macro Annual Conference, to be held on April 12 and 13, 2013 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In addition to soliciting papers, we will consider proposals on any important topic within the field of macroeconomics (including open economy macroeconomics and economic growth). We are particularly interested in papers with a strong empirical content and policy relevance. Discussions centered around important theoretical controversies are also welcomed, though generally papers should have a significant empirical dimension. To get a more explicit sense of the type of paper that is appropriate, it may be helpful to examine recent issues of the Macro Annual and also the program for the Spring 2012 meeting on the NBER's Conference website: http://www.nber.org/~confer/2012/Macro12/program.html
Proposals should be clear and concise. A few pages that clearly explain what you will do are more than sufficient, but we will also consider completed drafts when available. "Bob Hall" rules are in effect: we will contact only authors of accepted proposals. However, proposals not accepted for the 2013 conference may be considered for the future.
Those interested in applying should upload their proposals here by July 22, 2013: http://www.nber.org/confsubmit/backend/cfp?id=Macro13.
We look forward to hearing from you.Jonathan Parker and Michael Woodford
