The American Economic Association, in conjunction with 59 associations in related disciplines known as the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA), holds a three-day meeting each January to present papers on general economics topics.
Thousands of the best minds in economics are assembled to network and celebrate new achievements in economic research:
Meeting Program: Offers in-depth coverage of economics topics across many disciplines via hundreds of speakers and panels.
Job Interviews: The concurrent economics job fair brings together thousands of job-seekers and recruiting companies in pre-registered interview sessions.
Special Events: The Presidential Address, award presentations, lectures, and many networking opportunities are also part of the experience.
Exhibit Hall: Meet representatives offering specialized products and services serving economists and those in related disciplines.
Proceedings: The American Economic Association publishes a Papers and Proceedings edition in May highlighting selected papers from the meeting.
ASSA is the premiere event to expose your work with colleagues and hear about the latest research emerging in the field. Economists from around the world take advantage of this unique opportunity to share, collaborate, and learn.
