***Registration for the 2017 conference has closed. Please check back next year for the 2018 conference***

The goals of the conference are:

  • To provide a forum for scholars in political science, public administration, law, computer science, statistics, and other fields who are working to develop rigorous empirical approaches to the study of how laws and administrative procedures affect the quality of elections in the United States;
  • To build scientific capacity by identifying major questions in the field, fostering collaboration, and connecting senior and junior scholars.

Airfare, lodging, and conference meals will be covered for paper presenters and discussants. Other scholars wishing to attend without presenting a paper are welcome to attend if they can cover conference costs. Contact by May 1, 2017 for more information.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to relevant individuals and e-mail lists. We look forward to reading your paper proposals!

Yours sincerely,
