The Program Committee invites submissions in any area of economics or econometrics from researchers around the world interested in issues relevant to Latin America. Submissions should be made online. Abstracts are due by 30 April 2002, and full papers are due by 31 May 2002. Only PDF files will be accepted as electronic format. Decisions on submissions will be made by 30 June 2002.

Accepted papers will only be included in the final program if presenting authors have registered by 20 August 2002. Financial aid for presenting authors will be available.

LACEA 2002 plans to build on the success of previous Meetings of the Association. Moreover, by hosting the Meeting in Europe, we intend to foster interaction between Latin American and European economists.

LACEA has established itself as the leading association of economists interested in the problems of economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean. We have contributed to strengthening ties between the research community and economic decision makers in the region and we have fostered debate and dissemination of better economic and social policies based on economic research. Yet, during the last few years, we struggled to find a permanent sponsor, who would help us maintain these activities. Therefore, we kindly ask you to help us make LACEA financially sustainable for the years to come. Please take one minute to donate. Every contribution counts. Thank you!
