Call for Papers

The American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon), the Health Economics Research Organization (HERO), and the International Health Economics Association (iHEA) are soliciting papers for presentation at the 2018 Allied Social Science Association (ASSA) annual meeting to be held in Philadelphia, PA on January 5-7, 2018 (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday). Based upon submitted abstracts, papers will be selected for 1 ASHEcon-organized session, 5 HERO-organized sessions, and 2 iHEA-organized sessions.

ASHEcon seeks abstracts on topics related to US-focused health economics topics; HERO seeks abstracts on all issues of relevance to the health economics field; and iHEA seeks abstracts for sessions that will focus primarily on internationally relevant topics in health economics.

Please submit abstracts by May 1.

Parallel review will take place by distinct review committees. The ASHEcon review will be performed by the current President (Jonathan Gruber, MIT), President-Elect (Loren Baker, Stanford), and Past-President (Mark Pauly, Penn). The HERO Review Committee is comprised of Donald Yett (USC, HERO Program Chair), Amanda Kowalski (Yale University), and Kosali Simon (Indiana University). The iHEA review committee will be comprised of iHEA board members.

ASHEcon, HERO, and iHEA are independent organizations each with affiliate status in the ASSA.

Submission period is over. Thank you for your interest.
