NARSC 2013 Mark Your Calendars

Dear Colleague:


The 60th Annual North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, November 13-16. 2013. Our hosts this year will be the Southern Regional Science Association. We are looking forward to an exciting meeting that will bring together regional scientists from all over the world. The conference provides an excellent forum for the exchange of scholarly ideas as well as an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make some new ones. In addition to the traditional paper sessions we will be offering an opportunity for those of you who would prefer to present your research in the form of a poster the opportunity to do so. We will also be offering a small number of Workshops on the Wednesday of the conference.

Conference organizers welcome individual papers and organized sessions relating to a wide variety of topics inclusive within the diverse realm of regional science.  We are an international scholarly organization that focuses on regional analysis, ranging from urban and spatial theory to applied problems in regional development, sustainability, environmental management, and rural land use.  We are an interdisciplinary association, with members representing fields as diverse as economics, agricultural economics, public policy, urban planning, civil engineering, geography, finance, and demography.

The conference will be held in the Grand Hyatt which is located in the uptown neighborhood of Buckhead in Atlanta. We have negotiated an excellent nightly hotel rate of $189/night for a single or a double (plus applicable taxes of 15%). The weather should be nice in Atlanta in November. The city has a continental climate with average November temperatures being a high of 62°F (17°C)and a low of  45°F (7°C).

One very important change regarding this year's conference is that the deadline for abstract submissions is  JULY, 1 (a month earlier than previous years). We have made this change as it will allow us to inform you a month earlier than usual about the status of your submission. We hope that this earlier notification will facilitate your travel plans.
