From the AERE Newsletter (PDF) with two minor edits (the submission deadline has been moved back to 3/10 and there are no discussants):
The 87th Annual Meeting of the SEA will be held in Tampa, Florida at the Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina, November 17-19, 2017 (Friday through Sunday). John Whitehead (Appalachian State University) is once again organizing the AERE sessions. Abstracts will be accepted for consideration beginning January 30, 2017 through the AERE@SEA website (click here) and must be submitted by March 10, 2017, midnight PDT.
Proposals for complete sessions are also encouraged. Organizers of proposed sessions should submit abstracts for EACH of the papers. Papers may be accepted or rejected on an individual basis unless the organizer specifically requests the session be considered only in its entirety.
Please note that all selected presenters must be 2017 AERE members. Membership of presenters will be verified one month after notification of acceptance. Papers of non-members will be dropped from the program. (We regret we do not have sufficient staff to send membership reminders to non-members.) Also, priority consideration for discussants will be given to current AERE members.
I'm very excited. This is the first year that presenters can submit abstracts via an online submission system instead of sending me an email (and then I lose your email). The online submission website is here: http://www.mymeetingsavvy.com/aere-sea/login.aspx.
Note also that there is box that you can check to volunteer to serve as an abstract reviewer. Please feel compelled to do so! This will be very helpful and looks great on your vita ("AERE@SEA Organizing Committee 2017").
The 2017 conference website is here: https://www.southerneconomic.org/conference/. Note that you will be required to register for the SEA conference (and pay a fat registration fee to the SEA in addition to the required AERE membership ... but you should already be a member of AERE anyway).
