New Orleans, Louisana

We are pleased to invite you to join us in New Orleans for the 71st North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International (RSAI)!

The conference is co-sponsored by the North American Regional Science Council (NARSC) and the Southern Regional Science Association.

The conference will take place in downtown New Orleans, November 13-16. The conference will cover a wide range of topics in regional science. We welcome submissions from scholars and practitioners in fields such as economics, agricultural economics, public policy, urban planning, civil engineering, geography, finance, and demography. We also encourage submissions of interdisciplinary research that relates to these topics.

We particularly encourage submissions that address current challenges facing policymakers, and the challenges facing governments, businesses, and society in adapting to pandemic-induced disruptions.

We invite proposals for the following types:

·         Individual papers to be integrated into sessions

·         Proposals for complete sessions of papers

·         Proposals for panel, roundtable, or discussions

·         Student papers for the Graduate-Student-Author Paper Competition

·         Student papers for the Graduate-Student-Led Paper Competition

We have a number of organized sessions devoted to specific topics. If you are interested in participating in one of these sessions, please contact the organizers directly. See the list of special session calls using this link. The list of sessions is updated regularly, so please check back often.

Are you interested in organizing a special session or a series of sessions? If so, please contact the Program Chair, Sandy Dall'erba (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), as soon as possible.

To submit an abstract or a complete session, please use our online submission system. The submission deadline is July 12, 2024.

As part of the launch of the journal, we are now accepting submissions for an inaugural collection of papers. The submission deadline is August 15, 2024, and we expect to publish this collection later this year.

Reaching Regions will publish contributions on topics of policy relevance to North American regions including original descriptive analyses, data visualizations, non-technical summaries of published academic research, case studies with broader implications, research syntheses, and other items approved by the Editors. All submissions should be written in non-technical language that is accessible to non-academics.

Reaching Regions will be peer-reviewed, open-access, and published fully online. NARSC members can submit papers with no submission or publication fees. Potential contributions can be submitted via the journal’s online submission portal: https://www.iastatedigitalpress.com/rreg/submissions/
