We are quickly approaching the traditional October 15 deadline for paper submissions for the WRSA annual meeting, to be held in Santa Barbara, California, February 24-27, 2013.  Now's the time to get your papers submitted!  Running late?  The deadline will be extended, but it's still helpful to hear from you so we're on the lookout for your paper.

If you plan to attend the meeting but won't be presenting a paper, the program committee will be happy to assign you paper discussant and/or chair duties - just drop Rachel Franklin (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) a line letting her know you'd like to be included in the program.

The hard deadline for the Tiebout Prize is also October 15 - if you'd like to be considered, get those papers in the mail today or tomorrow to ensure an on-time delivery!  The Tiebout Prize will be awarded for the best paper submitted by a full-time graduate student enrolled at an accredited academic institution (currently or having completed studies during Academic Year 2011–2012). To be considered, papers should be in the general multidisciplinary realm of regional science: topics in the fields of regional economics, urban economics, urban/regional planning, economic and quantitative geography, and local public finance are especially encouraged.  The winning author will receive $1,000 to help defray the costs of attending the Meeting. The paper may be published in The Annals of Regional Science (published by Springer) following standard review/revision procedures.  Deadline for submissions is October 15, 2012.  For further details, see the WRSA website at www.wrsa.info.

Finally, if you've recently completed your PhD studies (within the past five years), consider submitting your WRSA conference paper for the Springer Prize.  This prize is awarded annually at the WRSA Annual Meeting for the best paper presented by an early career scholar (doctoral studies completed within the past five years) on a regional science topic. The prize consists of a certificate and selection of Springer books as chosen by the winner, worth $300.  Following standard review/revision procedures, the paper may be published in The Annals of Regional Science and announced on the Springer Website.  To have a paper considered for the Springer Prize simply inform Rachel Franklin of this wish at the time of paper submittal for the conference (or no later than January 1).

Further details on paper submission and meeting logistics are available on the WRSA website: www.wrsa.info.
