WRSA: Reminder for Paper Submission - 2023 Annual Meeting in Big Island, Hawaii

Dear WRSA Members and Friends,

This is a friendly reminder for the paper submission for our 62nd Annual Meeting in Big Island, Hawaii from Feb 15th to Feb 18th, 2023. For those wanting the information now, here are the key details (or you can find more about our meeting here!):

Paper Submission: Papers should be uploaded to the WRSA website by October 15, 2022, although as in past years the "deadline" will be extended until mid-November. Remember that program invitations are only issued on the basis of full papers, not abstracts or outlines. Draft papers are sufficient for the October deadline, so long as we have a complete version in hand by January 15th, 2023.

Hotel Reservations: Our meeting hotel is Hilton Waikoloa Village located in Big Island, HI, one of the most beloved meeting spots among our members. Located on the sunny, scenic Kohala Coast, the oceanfront resort offers a taste of the island life full of culture, poolside relaxation, and a chance to meet marine wildlife up close. At Hilton Waikoloa Village, you can enjoy the magic of Hawaii, an oasis dotted with lagoons, pools, water slides, and a wide variety of restaurants and bars. Our negotiated daily room rate is $239 plus applicable taxes and a $15 resort fee (reduced from $45 for our group). Compare our discounted rate to the regular daily room rate of $585 plus applicable taxes and a $45 resort fee. See the “Hotel Information” link on the WRSA website. The hotel has agreed to honor our special room rate three days prior to and three days following our meeting, based on availability. Please note: after January 13, 2023, the hotel will no longer honor our special room rate! Be sure to book early!

Tiebout Prize: Advisors and Ph.D. students alike are reminded that October 15 is the hard deadline for submissions for the 37th Annual Tiebout Prize in Regional Science. Visit the WRSA website for full details. Papers co-authored with faculty advisors are acceptable; however, the primary author must meet the Tiebout student requirements and the bulk of the substantive work and contribution of the paper must have come from the student. REQUIRED: Submitted pdfs of the paper must include a letter from the faculty advisor confirming that these requirements have been met.

Student Conference Assistants: WRSA is seeking several students to assist with meeting registration in Big Island, HI. In exchange for 10-15 hours of volunteering at the registration desk, students will receive a complete rebate of their preregistration fees (worth $150, to be processed as a refund following the meeting). Additionally, volunteering students will be able to benefit from a discounted daily staff room rate of $179 (with a roommate volunteer, it will be $89.50 plus tax and a daily resort fee of $7.50). All student volunteers should stay at our conference hotel, Hilton Waikoloa Village. Contact WRSA via email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are always VERY happy to assign you a session chair role or paper discussant duties if you’re willing. Just drop us an email  (This email address is being protected from spambots.
