NBER cannot cover the travel expenses or lodging costs of authors who are invited to present papers, but it does provide continental breakfast and lunch each day for participants. 

To be considered for presentation, papers (or, for some programs, one-page abstracts) must be submitted by midnight (EST) on March 20, 2019.  Submissions of both empirical and theoretical research, from scholars who are early in their careers, from researchers with and without NBER affiliations, and from scholars who are members of groups that are under-represented in the economics profession, are welcome. The following workshops require the submission of completed papers (no abstracts): Asset Pricing, Corporate Finance, Development Economics, Economic Fluctuations and Growth, Energy and Environmental Economics, Health Economics, Law and Economics, Monetary Economics, and Political Economy.

Submissions can be uploaded here.
