2017 Pennsylvania Economic Association Conference

hosted by Alvernia University

Call for Papers & Posters

The PEA 2017 Conference will again host professional papers in all areas of economics and business in its concurrent sessions.  The conference also will allow students (undergraduate and graduate) the opportunity to present research papers in concurrent sessions, or present their research in a poster board format.  Note that research poster presentations are limited to student presenters.  A special student poster session will be scheduled for the display and discussion of student research posters.  Requirements and guidelines for posters may be reviewed here.


Presenters are expected to have a research paper available for distribution to session participants at the conference.  Fifteen (15) copies of the paper will generally be sufficient.


This year's annual conference will also host a Best Undergraduate Student Paper Contest. Details regarding this contest and prizes may be found here.

All paper/poster proposals are subject to acceptance by the Pennsylvania Economic Association. 

Authors will be notified of paper/poster acceptance by the Vice President for Program.



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.  This prepayment requirement will be waived for any international applicant that had previously attended a PEA conference.

Conference Proceedings


Each year, the PEA publishes the Proceedings of its annual conference. Papers of presenters as well as discussants may be included in the proceedings. Students that present research posters, also may include an abstract of their research in the Proceedings.  Only those papers and posters that are actually presented can be included in the proceedings.  Please note that the PEA reserves the right to reject any paper that is judged inappropriate for publication in the Proceedings.


Detailed submission information may be found here.
