The Community Development and Research Departments of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland invite paper submissions for its 10th annual Policy Summit, to be held June 28-29, 2012, in Cleveland, Ohio. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners interested in economic policy and development in low- and moderate-income communities.
We encourage the submission of papers in the areas of education, poverty, labor markets, housing, and program evaluation. Specific topics of interest include: financial and human capital asset building, education policy, long-term unemployment, workforce development, entrepreneurship, labor and housing issues in older industrial cities, low-income housing, loss-mitigation strategies for borrowers, and issues in program implementation, evaluation, and scalability. Particularly appropriate are analyses of programs and policies focused on current conditions in labor and housing markets, as well as of issues related to reduced local government and community development budgets. Policy-related research and submissions applicable to the Federal Reserveís Fourth District and the Great Lakes region are also encouraged.
The Cleveland Fedís annual Policy Summit draws an audience of several hundred researchers, practitioners, policymakers, funders, elected and legislative officials, and bankers from across the Great Lakes region. Travel and accommodation expenses per Federal Reserve guidelines will be covered for presenters.
The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2012. Please submit an extended abstract or draft of your research paper by this date to firstname.lastname@example.org. Conference papers will be due on June 1, 2012. Questions about the call for papers or the Policy Summit can be directed to Tim Dunne at email@example.com or Francisca G.-C.
