Please download either a Word version or pdf version of the call for papers. There is no fee for submitting an application for paper presentations or for entire sessions.

(Anyone can join SGE who shares our interest in the work of government economists.) Applications for conference papers and sessions may be made simultaneously to both conferences, by filling a single application form.  If the application is made to both, and is accepted to both, then it is expected that the presentations will be made at both conferences.
