The second research meeting of the University of Virginia economics Alumni Interest Group will be held September 22-23 on the UVA grounds. Its goal is to provide research feedback, and foster collaboration among our members.

All submissions, both empirical and theoretical, are welcome, and there is no submission fee. All presentations will be in plenary sessions, and each paper will be assigned a discussant. Completed papers (which will be given preference) or extended abstracts should be submitted electronically by August 15, 2017. See below for submission instructions.
The research presentations will take place Friday, September 22nd.

Saturday will include a tailgate picnic in the Lawn Gardens and a group outing. Those who are not able to attend the research sessions are still encouraged to attend these other events.
