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.

Abstract Submission

Sorry, this form does not accept more than six coauthors

Please indicate, in the box below, if this abstract has also been submitted for the AEA open call; if it is selected for both, we will coordinate with you.

If you wish, please also use this space to suggest two other abstracts that might fit well with this submission, for possible consideration as a session (and mention their titles here; you need do this only on one of the three submissions).
