Special Information for International Participants

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.
