Call for Submissions: 2021 SBCA Conference and Workshops
We are now accepting proposals for the 2021 SBCA annual conference and professional development workshops! The conference will be held online from March 15 through March 26; workshops will be held online throughout the year.
The submission portal is now open; the deadline is 11:59 pm Eastern time, December 4, 2020.
For the conference, we are accepting four types of proposals:
- Individual research presentations
- Panels of research presentations
- Roundtable discussions
- Innovative sessions
Presentations are welcome on any methodological or policy topic relevant to the theory or practice of benefit-cost analysis. We define benefit-cost analysis broadly to include analyses that rely on monetary measures and those that include nonmonetary measures, synthetic or natural units (e.g., QALYs, DALYs, acres protected, cases averted). Both conventional and innovative analytic approaches are welcome. We encourage submissions from scholars, practitioners, and others working in academia, nonprofits, business, and government around the world.
For the workshops, we welcome proposals in any area related to benefit-cost analysis. Workshops may address basic or advanced skills or emerging issues. Topics of interest to those working in academia, government, business, or nonprofits globally are welcome.
Workshops will be held online throughout the year, and may be designed as mini-courses, panel discussions, highly interactive conversations, or other formats.
