SBCA Extends 2023 Annual Conference Call for Abstract Submissions

To further enrich the conference program, the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis has opened a call for late-breaking abstract submissions and extended the deadline for submitting proposals to present online at its 2023 Annual Conference to be held on March 9-10 in person at The George Washington University, Washington, DC, and March 13-14 online.

We are pleased to welcome back participants of our Annual Conference to meet in person in addition to building on the success of the last two years’ online conferences by also allowing for participants who are unable to attend conferences in person. To facilitate conference planning, during the abstract submission process you will be asked to choose between presenting in person, online, or either (at the discretion of the Program Committee). To be guaranteed consideration by the Program Committee, 

  • Submissions to present in person (or either, at the discretion of the Program Committee) must be received by October 31, 2022.

  •  Submissions to present online only must be received by December 5, 2022.
