Hello, I am Crystal Luce, a student at the University of Colorado Denver, and the former Program Chair of GSNE.
Getting accepted to a conference, AEA or otherwise, can be challenging but necessary. For some, the acceptance of a proposal is an addition to their resume, and for others, it is their ticket to being able to attend the conference. However, it can be tough for a new evaluator to know what you should and shouldn’t put into the proposal, what sort of presentation you have, and trying to read the minds of those who review the submissions. With submissions for the AEA conference due in the coming weeks, we thought it would be beneficial to discuss some of our experiences and knowledge when it comes to conference presentation proposals. Below are some tips and tricks to consider when putting your proposal together.
