Call for Papers -- Closed

Participants have received notification of abstract acceptance. The deadline for receipt of full sessions and individual works was June 12, 2024. Authors were notified of acceptance by the end of July.



Concurrent sessions at the conference allow students, academic faculty and staff, energy economists, and practitioners who are working in business, government, and research communities to present current analysis, research, or case studies on topics that are related to energy economics and markets. Presentations may be based on academic papers, but this is not a requirement. Presentations are intended to facilitate the sharing of both academic and professional experiences and lessons learned.

Submission Information

The USAEE accepts submissions of full sessions and individual works.

Full Sessions
The USAEE encourages interested participants to submit full sessions, which consist of individual presentations that are focused on a unifying theme, for consideration. Full sessions must have a minimum of three presentations but should aim to have four presentations. Full sessions can include paper presentations or panel discussions. The USAEE reserves the right to add a fourth presentation to a session that includes only three.

Please contact Ramteen Sioshansi for details regarding the submission of a full session.

Individual Works
An individual work may be based on a full paper or on an abstract only. Abstracts should be concise and communicate clearly the work’s contribution. Full papers should include a cover page with an abstract and author names and affiliations. If accepted, USAEE will organize individual works into sessions.

Submit individual work.

Student Opportunities
A presented paper or poster presentation that is based on work done primarily by one or more students (the IAEE definition of a student is available here) is eligible for Best Student Paper and Best Student Poster awards. Authors of submissions that fit these criteria will be contacted regarding award nominations. Students who indicate interest in the Best Student Poster award will also be considered for a full presentation, space permitting.

Student participants will have the option to sign-up on their registration forms for shared accommodations at the conference to reduce the cost of attendance.

Conference Attendance
At least one author of an accepted presentation must pay the registration fee and attend the conference in-person to present the work. Each speaker may present only one work at the conference but can be coauthor of multiple presented works.
