Given the size of this conference, it is critical that all oral and lightning presenters submit their presentation in advance, so that we can organize them across our rooms. We will post a link on the conference webpage and share it with you by November 2, and ask that you submit your presentation by November 7.



World Development Special Issue Submission: At this time, only those who present their paper at the SDC are invited to submit their paper for special issue consideration. Presenters can submit their paper via the main World Development submission portal (EES). Under submission type, please select “*Invitation Only* SI: S&DMEET2018”.
