Membership in the Econometric Society
Each individual may submit only one paper and present only one paper. However, s/he may co-author multiple papers submitted to the conference. At least one author of each paper must be a member of the Econometric Society at the time of submission. To join or renew a membership, please visit http://www.econometricsociety.org/user/register.

Financial Aid
A limited amount of scholarship funds are available to assist presenters of accepted papers from low and lower-middle income countries with travel and registration fees to attend the Congress. Other than in exceptional hardship circumstances, applications from Europe or countries classified as upper middle-income or high-income by the World Bank will not be considered.  The option to apply is included as part of the paper submission process. If a submitter’s paper is accepted, s/he will be notified of the scholarship receipt and amount at the same time as being notified of paper acceptance. A waitlist will also be maintained and recipients will be notified with enough time to make travel plans. All scholarship funds will be provided via wire transfer to the awardee’s bank account. If, due to country circumstances, receiving wired money is not possible, other accommodations will be made.

Submitting Entire Sessions
Individuals may submit entire sessions through Conference Maker. However, there is no guarantee that all papers in a submitted session will be accepted. If a paper (or papers) from a submitted session are rejected, the accepted papers will be folded into another session.

The link to submit a paper is  http://editorialexpress.com/conference/ESWC2020/ and the deadline to submit is January 31, 2020.
