The University of Nebraska at Omaha School of Public Administration is inviting paper proposals for the upcoming Spring Conference on Applied Public Finance, to be held on May 10-11, 2024, in Omaha, Nebraska. The School of Public Administration is sponsoring the conference along with University of Nebraska (NU) Foundation Grants for Pension Research, Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), and Wichita State University – Hugo Wall School of Public Affairs.
The sponsors seek papers that focus on broad challenges in the areas of public budgeting, public pension and other employment benefits, taxation, municipal securities, public expenditure evaluation, fiscal federalism, financial management, infrastructure financing and asset management, and more. Papers may examine these and other policy issues at the national or subnational levels in domestic or international contexts, utilizing a variety of empirical methods. They are particularly interested in papers that provide practical insights for state and local government officers on addressing their current budgeting and financial management challenges.
Proposals are due no later than January 30, 2024.
