Call for Abstracts 

NZAE Banner 1000px wide Sponsors copy.png

Please submit an abstract of not more than 250 words for either an oral presentation or the poster session. Full papers are not required at this stage, but for a paper to be considered eligible for the Statistics New Zealand, New Zealand Economic Policy, Stata, Seamus Hogan or the David Teece prizes, a full paper must be submitted by 6 June.

We encourage individuals to present their research in the poster session. Some research is particularly suited to the visual style of a poster presentation; the poster session can also be suitable for work in progress and speculative research. We particularly welcome student research in the poster session.


You are welcome to submit up to three papers. If we are only able to accept one of the submissions, we will contact you to ask which paper you prefer to present. This limit applies to the number of papers presented by any one person, and not to the number of papers on which he or she is a co-author.

Please note that presenters whose papers are accepted for an oral presentation or poster MUST REGISTER by 13 May 2021 in order to remain on the programme. After this date, the registration fee is non-refundable

Presenter Information


Sessions are 1½ hours long with 3 presentations scheduled in each session. 15minutes have been allocated for each paper, approximately 12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for discussion. This then allows 5 minutes for delegates to move to a different room for another presentation.

Please ensure that presentations are delivered in the order they appear in the programme and complete the presentation and discussion within the time allocated, even in cases where only two papers have been scheduled in a session. This will allow attendees to move between rooms if necessary.

Please be in the allocated room at least five minutes prior to the session starting to allow papers to be uploaded, ready to begin promptly at the beginning of the session. It is your responsibility to ensure your paper is uploaded correctly and presenting as desired.

Each room is equipped with a lectern, fixed microphone, built-in computer with data projector, and mouse. If other equipment is required, please arrange this prior to the conference.

Presentations should be in a format which is readable on PC computers.  

You do not need to bring copies of your paper with you. Conference papers will be available on the NZAE website after the conference.




You need to bring your A0 size poster with you to the conference and it should be displayed on the provided poster boards from the beginning of the conference until the conclusion. 

If you require any additional information that is not mentioned above, or you have a query in regards to your speaking slot, please contact OnCue Conferences.
