60th Annual Meetings of the Public Choice Society

2023 Public Choice Society, March 16-18, Seattle, Washington

We are excited to bring Public Choice Society to Seattle for the first time on the occasion of our 60th anniversary conference.

We invite papers for the 60th Annual Meetings of the Public Choice Society, March 16-18, 2023 at the Sheraton Grand in Seattle, Washington. Paper and session submissions will be open from September 1 to November 1.

Socializing and sustenance will be abundant, as the conference will feature common meals each day, coffee breaks between academic sessions, and cocktail receptions on Thursday and Saturday nights. Our annual awards luncheon on Saturday will announce the Duncan Black Prize, the Gordon Tullock Prize, and the ninth annual Elinor and Vincent Ostrom Prize for best combined paper and presentation by a graduate student. Our affiliate groups and sponsors will exhibit various opportunities including special publisher discounts available to conference attendees.

The paper submission deadline is November 1 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Online registration opens September 1. Persons interested in organizing a four-paper session are asked to send their proposal to the Contact Form. Please visit the conference website for up-to-date information about important dates, conference procedures, hotel & conference registration, and travel logistics.
