Abstract Submission for 2019 ASSA Annual Meeting
The International Health Economics Association (iHEA), the American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon), and the Health Economics Research Organization (HERO) are soliciting papers for presentation at the 2019 annual meeting of the Allied Social Sciences Association (ASSA), which includes the American Economic Association, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia on January 4-6, 2019 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). Based upon submitted abstracts, papers will be selected for 2 iHEA-organized sessions, 1 ASHEcon-organized session, and 5 HERO-organized sessions.
iHEA seeks abstracts for sessions that will focus on international health economics research, ASHEcon seeks abstracts related to US-focused health economics topics, and HERO seeks abstracts on all issues of relevance to the health economics field.
If you would like to submit your abstract as part of a group of abstracts for consideration as a complete session, please note the other abstracts in the Notes section of the abstract submission form and provide suggested discussants for each paper. Please note that this is not a guarantee that all papers in a set would necessarily be on the program.
Parallel review will take place by distinct review committees. The iHEA review committee will be chaired by the President-Elect (Winnie Yip, Harvard University). The ASHEcon review will be performed by Past-President (Mark Pauly, University of Pennsylvania), Kate Bundorf (Stanford University), Christopher "Kitt" Carpenter (Vanderbilt University), Robin McKnight (Wellesley College), and Frank Sloan (Duke University). The HERO Review Committee is comprised of Donald Yett (USC, HERO Program Chair), Amanda Kowalski (Yale University), and Kosali Simon (Indiana University).
iHEA, ASHEcon, and HERO are independent organizations each with affiliate status in the ASSA.
You can submit your abstracts using this form.
The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2018.
