Congrats to BU faculty on prominent role at ASSA 2013!

Congratulations!

BU faculty, graduate students and alumni appear prominently in the program of the Allied Social Sciences Association (ASSA) meetings (aka the AEA meetings), scheduled to be held in San Diego January 4-6, 2013. Altogether their names appear as presenters, authors, chairs or discussants at least 73 times. Seventeen different economics faculty are listed as participants (up from 12 in 2012). I see many colleagues from SMG and SPH as well.

Names of BU faculty, graduate students and alumni on the preliminary program of the ASSA are shown on the extract below in Bold. (Also shown are the times and rooms in case you have not looked yet.) My apologies for the incompleteness of this listing, since finding alumni in particular is challenging. I am sure I missed many more alumni.

Well done colleagues!

The full ASSA preliminary program is listed here. http://www.aeaweb.org/aea/2013conference/program/preliminary.php

(Also, not too early to begin planning for your presentation at ASSA 2014, which will be in Philadelphia Jan 3-5, 2014, or for 2015 in Boston!)

Be sure to plan on attending the BU reception at the ASSA which will be
Saturday, January 5, 6:00-8:00 pm, Manchester Grand Hyatt-Gregory A & B
