Call for Papers: Feb. 15 Deadline for the Cleveland Fed's 10th Policy Summit
The community development and research departments of the Cleveland Fed invite submissions of papers by February 15 for its 10th annual Policy Summit. The summit will be held June 28–29, 2012, in Cleveland.
The Cleveland Fed encourages the submission of papers in the areas of education, poverty, labor markets, housing, and program evaluation. Specific topics of interest include financial and human capital asset building, education policy, long-term unemployment, workforce development, entrepreneurship, labor and housing issues in older industrial cities, low-income housing, loss-mitigation strategies for borrowers, and issues in program implementation, evaluation, and scalability. Particularly appropriate are analyses of programs and policies focused on current conditions in labor and housing markets, as well as issues related to reduced local government and community development budgets. Policy-related research and submissions applicable to the Federal Reserve's Fourth District and the Great Lakes region are also encouraged.
The conference brings together several hundred researchers, practitioners, and policymakers interested in economic policy and development in low- and moderate-income communities. This year's conference focuses on program and policy evaluation.
An extended abstract or draft of the research paper should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the February 15 deadline. Conference papers will be due June 1. Questions about the call for papers or the Policy Summit can be directed to Tim Dunne at email@example.com or Francisca G. Richter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
