Please go to the home pages of these conferences for the programs and the papers presented.

APEA 2010 welcomes papers in all empirical or theoretical papers in economic fields, with or without relevance to the Asia-Pacific economies.

Presenters are encouraged to submit their papers presented in the conference, after duly revision, to China Economic Policy Review or Global Journal of Economics.

Submission

Economists are invited to submit papers for presentation in the conference. Papers in all economics fields, either theoretical or empirical, and whether or not directly related to the Asia-Pacific economies, are welcome. A few sessions for graduate students in doctoral programs are planned.

The deadline for submitting a paper (or an extended abstract with at least 300 words) is January 31, 2010. Please send your submission to <submit@apeaweb.org>.

Please include in your submission the following information of you and all other co-authors (if any): name, e-mail address, affiliation, academic rank (or graduate student), and mailing address.

  

Organizing a Session

Economists are also welcome to organize sessions in the conference. Each session will last for 2 hours, consisting of
a chair person (not necessarily the organizer, but preferably not one of the presenters or discussants);
three to five papers around a common theme;
three to five discussants (If help is needed to identify discussants, please contact us.).

Please submit a proposal by February 28, 2010. The proposal should include the title of each session, and the names, affiliations, academic ranks, and e-mail addresses of all presenters, discussants, the organizer, and the chair. The proposal should be sent to <submit@apeaweb.org>.

 

Registration

All participants have to register. The registration fee is US$250 (or US$210 if pay before May 31, 2010). Graduate students, with proof of their student status, will enjoy a registration fee of US$125 (or US$105 if pay before May 31, 2010). Participants from least developed countries will receive a 50% discount of the registration fee.

 

Special Issues

The conference will have a few sessions for papers to be considered for two special issues of Global Journal of Economics (GJE) and China Economic Policy Review (CEPR). These two special sessions consist of invited papers and submitted papers. Those who submit papers to the conference can also submit their papers to these two sessions and the special issues. The details are given as follows:

  • Joshua Aizenman (UC, Santa Cruz) and Shin-ichi Fukuda (University of Tokyo) are the guest editors of a special issue of Global Journal of Economics and organizers of two sessions for papers to be considered for the issue. The topic of the issue is “Asia Pacific and the Adjustment to the 2008-2010 Global Liquidity Crisis”.  Possible issues are: the use of international reserves, pooling and swap arrangements, stabilization and fiscal policy, and so on.

  • K. C. Fung (UC, Santa Cruz) and Alicia Garcia-Herrero (BBVA, Hong Kong) are the guest editors of a special issue of China Economic Policy Review and the organizers of two sessions for papers to be considered for the issue. The topic of the issue is “Outward Direct Investment of China.” Papers with policy analysis will be particularly welcome.

When submitting papers to the conference, please indicate your interest, if any, in having your paper considered for the special issue (mention which journal) and the special session. Your paper will be sent to the relevant guest editors for reviewing and selection.
