Greetings, Colleagues!

The 70th North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International (RSAI) will be November 14-18, 2023, in stellar San Diego, California.
The conference is co-sponsored by the North American Regional Science Council (NARSC) and the Western Regional Science Association, and this year we are excited to announce that the Spatial Econometrics Association will be joining us.
The conference will cover a wide range of topics in regional science. We welcome submissions from scholars and practitioners in fields such as transportation, economics, agricultural economics, public policy, urban planning, civil engineering, geography, finance, and demography. We also encourage submissions of interdisciplinary research that relates to these topics.
We particularly encourage submissions that address current challenges facing policymakers, such as the long-term consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on regions, and the challenges facing governments, businesses, and society in adapting to pandemic-induced disruptions.
We invite proposals for the following types: Individual papers to be integrated into sessions, Proposals for complete sessions of papers, Proposals for panel, roundtable, or discussions; Student papers for the Graduate-Student-Author Paper Competition; Student papers for the Graduate-Student-Led Paper Competition.
To submit an abstract or a complete session, please use our online submission system: The submission deadline is July 3, 2023. Decisions concerning the acceptance of papers and sessions will be announced in late August. All presenters, including members of panel discussions, discussants, and session chairs, must register for the conference and pay the registration fee in order to attend and present.
