About the AEA Annual Meeting

Share. Collaborate. Learn.

The AEA, in conjunction with 66 associations in related disciplines known as the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA), holds a three-day meeting each January to present papers on general economics topics.


The best minds in economics are assembled to network and celebrate new achievements in economic research:


  • Program: Offers in-depth coverage of economics topics across many disciplines via hundreds of speakers and panels.
  • Special Events: The Presidential Address, award presentations, lectures, and many networking opportunities are also part of the experience.
  • Job Interviews:  Review the AEA Job Market Committee’s guidance on the 2023-2024 economics job cycle.
  • Proceedings: The American Economic Association publishes a Papers and Proceedings edition in May highlighting selected papers from the meeting, and a limited number of sessions are featured on webcasts.
  • Exhibit Hall: Meet representatives offering specialized products and services serving economists and those in related disciplines.


ASSA is the premier event to expose your work with colleagues and hear about the latest research emerging in the field. Economists from around the world take advantage of this unique opportunity to share, collaborate, and learn…all in one place.

Information about the upcoming annual meeting is announced on the AEA website as it becomes available for presenters, attendees, and exhibitors.
