2010 Conference Accepted Authors

Instructions for Accepted Authors

THERE ARE THREE THINGS THAT YOU NEED TO DO

1. CONFIRMATION:

You must confirm the inclusion of your paper in the conference programme by Monday 18th January, 2010. Failure to do so by this date will mean that we will treat your paper as withdrawn from the conference. To confirm the inclusion of your paper using the Conference Maker software that you used to submit your paper, click here to log on with your username and password, and then select View/Edit Settings under My Account; then select Change User Info at the foot of the screen; and under Attending Conference please choose Yes, confirmed.

A copy of the conference programme will be available online in early March 2010.

Authors who have confirmed the inclusion of their paper also needed to register for the conference ONLINE.

2. REGISTRATION:

Online Conference Registration will open in early 2010. There is a closing date of Friday 26th February 2010. Registrations after this date will incur a late registration penalty of £100.

3. ACCOMMODATION:

Conference registration does not include accommodation. So if you require accommodation in Guildford you will need to book the necessary accommodation directly with a local hotel. Further information and suggested accommodation options are available on the conference website.

Please note: Unfortunately a change in University of Surrey student accommodation policy in 2010 means that there will be no vacant student accommodation that we can offer conference delegates.


Sessions and Presentations

All rooms will have a laptop and computer projection facilities, therefore each presenter is asked to bring their presentation material on a flash drive (and also to bring acetates as a backup). In each room the laptop will have the Microsoft Office suite of programmes plus a pdf reader.

General sessions will be 90 minutes in length, with three speakers per session. Each speaker is expected to restrict their presentation to between 20 and 25 minutes following which there will be 5 -10 minutes for questions and answers.

Conference Volume of the Economic Journal

As an author of an accepted and included paper, you may choose to submit your paper for consideration for publication in the conference volume of the Economic Journal. The submission deadline is Friday 26th February 2010 for papers included in the general sessions and Monday 29th March 2010 for papers included in the Special Sessions. Futher information for the 2010 RES Conference volume is available from the RES website.

Final decisions will be made by September 2010 at the latest. Note that only papers that are actually presented at the conference will be eligible for publication.
