GTAP Conference Scholars Program

Jan 15 Deadline

The goal of the GTAP Conference Scholars Program is to provide first-time student presenters the opportunity to “dry-run” their presentation in a virtual environment (simulated conference session) prior to the conference, receive live feedback from the audience, and have time to reflect on, and incorporate changes before their presentation during the conference.

To achieve this goal, first-time student scholars who opt into the program on the abstract submission form and have their paper selected for presentation, will be grouped and scheduled into online session(s) in mid-May to simulate what they will experience (albeit online) during the conference. Presenters will have the standard 20 minutes to present followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Following the session, student scholars should reflect on the questions and comments received and decide whether any adjustments need to be made to their presentation before the conference.

During the conference, student scholars presentations will be scheduled on the program with other papers of similar topic.

In order to be eligible for the program, individuals must:

  • be a current student that has not presented at the GTAP Conference before
  • submit a letter of recommendation from an advising professor in support of their acceptance into the program
    • letter should be addressed to the "GTAP Conference Scholars Program Committee"
    • letter will be uploaded as a PDF document during the abstract submission process
  • submit an abstract, which will go through the standard review process, and opt into the program on the abstract submission form

Those accepted into the program must meet all deadlines listed for the conference to remain on the program.
