April 30, 2021

Location: Virtual

Planning is now under way for the third annual Southeastern Micro Labor Workshop, to be hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. The workshop brings together PhD micro labor economists from southeastern institutions to foster an active exchange and discussion.

Given the ongoing need for social isolation, this year's workshop will once again be virtual.

The conference will consist of one day of presentations, on April 30, 2021, followed by a virtual social gathering at the end of the day. We will determine the format after submissions, but we plan to have at least six papers, with extended presentation time and discussant comments, as well as open discussion.

Submissions may be on any aspect of micro labor economics and may be empirical or theoretical, but they should not have been accepted for publication prior to presentation at the conference. If you would like to submit a paper to this conference, please submit an abstract (two pages maximum) in electronic format (preferably a PDF) using this link by February 14, 2021. Authors will receive notice of acceptance on or before March 1, 2021. The conference organizers must receive completed papers by April 15, 2021.

Please do not hesitate to contact Julie Hotchkiss or Melinda Pitts with any questions. We hope to virtually see you in April.

Please send submissions here.

Steering Committee: Julie Hotchkiss, Melinda Pitts, Kathryn Anderson, Peter Brummund, Joe Hotz, Tom Mroz, Orgul Ozturk, and Madeline Zavodny
