Paper Submissions


The Argentinean, Chilean, and Uruguayan Agricultural Economics Associations along with the International Association of Agricultural Economists (IAAE) are delighted to invite you to the 2nd Inter-Conference Symposium 6to Congreso Regional de Economía Agraria and 1st Latin-American Workshop on Productivity and Efficiency. These joint Meetings will take place April 19-21, 2023, in Montevideo Uruguay.

The overall theme is: “THE ROLE OF THE AGRIBUSINESS SECTOR IN THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF LATIN AMERICAN ECONOMIES.” However, Abstracts focusing on broader agricultural economics, sustainability and productivity topics are welcome. This collaborative effort seeks to provide an expanded regional network for agricultural economists from all over Latin America focusing on the sustainable development of our rural economies. Providing a platform for discussion, exchange, and networking, we are seeking to strengthen the profession throughout the region. The regional associations of agricultural economics in collaboration with the IAAE, invite all their members to submit abstracts. We plan to publish a special issue of Agribusiness: An International Journal with a selection of the best papers presented focusing on agribusiness topics.

The recently formed International Society for Efficiency and Productivity Analysis (ISEAPA,, affiliated with the Journal of Productivity Analysis (JPA), also encourages its Founding Members and regular membership to participate in these meetings. The authors of the best papers presented related to Latin American efficiency and productivity will be invited by ISEAPA to submit a paper for possible publication in a Special issue of the JPA.

The abstract submission site will open August 1, 2022, and the deadline for reception will be October 31, 2022. However, Young Professionals applying for partial support need to submit no later than October 15th, 2022. For any questions, please contact the organizers.

Paper Submission FAQ

How do I add coauthors with my submission in Conference Maker?

You can add coauthors after submitting your paper by logging in to Conference Maker. Click on the paper ID, then click on Add Modify Authors. Click on Add New Author. In the search screen, enter the first name/last name of the person. This will return a list of people. Chances are your coauthors may already have a free account with Conference Maker. Click on the userID of the person you wish to add and follow the remaining prompts.

Please note that no submitter is required to enter coauthors if they do not want to do this. Generally, only the presenter and not all coauthors need to register for the conference; however, the registration form does not prohibit the coauthors from registering as participants if they want. By default, the submitter of a paper is assumed to be the presenter, and if a submitter cannot present, they should ask one of their coauthors to register and switch the submitter ID for their submission to be the ID of the coauthor who will present the paper.
