2007 Census Research Data Center Annual Conference

Deadline for Proposals: July 15, 2007

The Census Research Data Center Program welcomes proposals to present papers and posters based on current or recent projects carried out in a Research Data Center or using confidential Census Bureau data. Graduate students are encouraged to apply. The 2007 Research Data Center Conference will be held September 27, 2007 at Census Bureau Headquarters, Suitland, MD (a suburb of Washington DC) and is hosted by the Center for Economic Studies. (The Census Bureau is Metro-accessible.)

SUBMISSIONS: Proposals for papers and posters should include an abstract of no more than 500 words, a brief CV, e-mail address, and telephone number. If the research has more then one author, please specify the contact author in the abstract. Submit proposal materials by e-mail to Lynn Riggs, Center for Economic Studies, tammy.l.riggs@census.gov. The conference organizers will select abstracts for either a presentation or poster session. Graduate student presenters may apply for a travel stipend and can include a request for travel expenses with the submission of their proposal. Additional funding may be available to support travel by other presenters with priority given to early-career scholars.

Further details on conference logistics, hotel, and the program will be circulated and posted on the CES website: http://www.ces.census.gov .

NOTE: Authors will have 20 minutes to present their research plus 10 minutes to respond to questions or comments. Authors selected for the poster session will illustrate their findings by displaying results as graphs, tables, diagrams, etc. with limited text on poster boards and will hold discussions with conference participants who circulate among the poster boards during the poster session. All results must of course receive advance clearance as being suitable for disclosure. Researchers are urged not to wait until the last minute to apply for clearance of results as bottlenecks may develop.
