Special Information for
The Pennsylvania Economic Association (PEA) is
pleased to welcome participants from around the world to its annual conference.
Each year representatives from various countries present at the conference and
enjoy the company of fellow economists.
It is important to note that the PEA will notify you via email
or surface mail that your paper has been accepted for presentation at the
conference. However, the PEA is unable to provide any additional
supporting materials to potential international participants for purposes of
visa acquisition or for making other travel arrangements. The PEA will not
provide additional letters, telephone calls, faxes, or telegrams in support of
visa applications. Your written notification of the acceptance of your
paper for presentation at the conference is the limit to the association's
ability to provide you with supporting documentation for travel purposes.
Unfortunately, due to a very high cancellation rate from
international applicants in recent years, the association will provide
only provisional acceptance of conference papers until receipt of the
individual's registration fee; these fees must be paid in U.S. funds. This prepayment requirement will be
waived for any international applicant that had previously attended a
PEA conference. All conference participants are responsible for
their own transportation to and from the conference site.
