The Association for Budgeting and Financial Management invites you to submit a paper or panel proposal for its annual research conference. This year’s conference will be held September 28-30 in Washington, DC. Though papers have traditionally focused on U.S. state and local government budgeting and financial management, we welcome papers on federal budgeting as well as papers with an international or comparative perspective. This year, there will be a special multiple-session track on public budgeting and financial management in Asia jointly hosted by the China-America Association for Public Affairs and Chinese Public Administration Review (CPAR). We also encourage both academics and practitioners to submit proposals. Below is a list of selected topics on which papers and panels have focused in recent conferences.

Please submit all paper and panel proposals by April 30, 2017 using one of the links above. Proposals will be reviewed and competitively selected. Please submit questions to the conference committee at abfm2017conference@gmail.com. Please send inquiries regarding the special Asia session track to Gang Chen, Assistant Professor, Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, University at Albany, State University of New York, gchen3@albany.edu.

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC!
