Please note the following:
You will want to check for regular updates to the program. Given the constraints of conference scheduling, we cannot accomodate further individual requests regarding preferences on days, times, or rooms.
Typical presentation length is 15-20 minutes but this will vary depending upon the number of participants in your session and the length of the session. You should also allow for a question-and-answer session at the end of the session. As a rule, Chairs are not assigned and the participants should appoint a Chair at the beginning of the session from those in attendance.
We expect that all rooms will be equipped with audio-visual provisions including a projector and computer.
The IAFFE main office will be closed July 10-20 due to conference travel, and have limited staffing July 20-29th. Any requests, questions, or concerns regarding conference preparation must be addressed prior to July 10th.
The 2015 IAFFE Annual Conference theme, “Gender Equality in Challenging Times” is intended to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue on how feminist economics contributes to the many challenges we face throughout the world. These challenges include economic crises, austerity policies in European countries, the transformation of the welfare state, care crisis, social challenges in emerging economies, and employment and migration around the world. Other important themes include comparative studies of social welfare policy, domestic violence, feminist ecology, the intersectional analysis of race, ethnicity and gender, and sex work. Panel proposals and individual paper submissions are invited on any aspect of feminist inquiry into economic issues. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome.
Submissions: Abstracts must be submitted on-line via the IAFFE website. Submissions can be made for a roundtable/panel or an individual paper. Participants are limited to one paper presentation and one roundtable/panel. Additional co-authored papers are allowed only if they are presented by the co-author. These limitations will allow maximum participation by all members wishing to participate.

The IAFFE pre-conference workshop is designed for scholars and activists new to feminist economics. It provides presentations by established scholars in the field. While precise topics vary from year to year, in general we include an overview to the subject along with presentations on specific topics such as feminist economics methodologies, caring labor, diversity in economics, and global perspectives on gender and economics. We also generally provide career-building presentations and discussions, such as on publishing feminist economics research and on developing a media presence.
The IAFFE pre-conference workshop will run from 1:30-5pm on Wednesday July 15. All IAFFE conference attendees, and attendees to the Gender Asset Gap Project Workshop, are cordially invited. The speakers and workshop organizers, all seasoned members of IAFFE, will present on a range of topics, intended to acclimate those new to feminist economics to the area, as well as to spark discussion and foster creative approaches to research and participation in the feminist economics program.

Joyce Jacobsen: Wrap-Up
This workshop will provide participants with an overview of three key topics. First, we discuss why the gendered study of assets is important and identify key methodological and substantive issues. What are the key research questions and what types of data are needed to answer them? Second, we discuss how to collect the data, including the issues of who to interview, which assets should be included, and how to obtain measures of value. Finally, we consider key framing issues, inclding the importance of marital and inheritance regimes to understand women's property ownership, conceptual issues on property rights and definitions of ownership, and the modes of acquisition and how they may differ by gender.For more information, visit
