Submission Portal for CEA 2024: forthcoming

(1) When submitting an abstract you will be asked if your paper is for the on-line sessions or the in-person sessions. Once the deadline to submit has passed, you will not be able to make changes to your presentation format.

(2) We have a submission system and a CEA registration system. It is important that you use the EXACT same email address in both systems. Please check your CEA profile before submitting to the conference, and contact the CEA office at if you need help with updating the email address in one/both systems. Please DO NOT create a new profile.


An author is asked to only submit one abstract for review.  If an author submits more than one paper, the latest submission will be considered for review and all earlier submissions will be removed.  Please withdraw any paper that you do not want reviewed. 

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Paula Emery at

Submission Instructions and FAQs:


Submission to a Track

In our new conference platform, when submitting your abstract, you will be asked to direct your submission to a Track. These tracks are the CEA Study Groups and Scientific Committees who will review the abstracts in their respective areas and provide a decision to the program office.

Not certain what track to select in Step 1? The following table provides an overview of the topics for each track in the submission portal. The specific topic is added in step 5 while an optional secondary topic can be added in step 6 of the submission process. Note that some papers may be reassigned to a different track based on the study group or committee's feedback, the paper's secondary subject, and the program chair's discretion.  Link to JEL Categories.
