Opening of the Call for Papers for the 2017 ASFEE Best Paper Award!

The Best Paper Award aims at rewarding the best paper presented by a young researcher at the previous ASFEE Conference. In June 2018, The French Association of Experimental Economics (ASFEE) will reward the best paper presented by a young researcher during its 2017 Conference in Rennes.

Please note that the Prize has changed with respect to previous years

The ASFEE best paper award consists in a 1000 euro award payable to the author that presented the paper at the ASFEE meeting. In addition the authors of the paper have the option to submit their paper to the journal Theory and Decision to benefit from a special fast-track (max. 10-weeks to decision). If you wish to be considered for this option we kindly ask you to state so in your submission letter.

Application to the 2017 ASFEE Best Paper Award is open to any participant under the age of 34 (by December 31, 2017) who presented a paper at the 2017 ASFEE Conference in Rennes University on June 8-9. If the paper was coauthored, only the author who actually delivered the presentation can apply (provided he/she is under 34).

There is no condition of nationality. The age limit does not apply to co-authors and there is no restriction on the number and status of co-authors.

Only one submission per applicant is accepted.

Authors of the winning paper will be contacted around mid-January 2018.

In case authors declare interest in the submission to Theory and Decision, and provided the paper is not under submission elsewhere, the paper will then be sent to the journal to benefit from the accelerated 10-week reviewing process.

The winner of the 2017 ASFEE Best Paper Award will be revealed during the 2018 ASFEE Conference in Nice, and the prize will be awarded publicly during the gala dinner of the Conference.
