AEA Annual Conference

The programme of the AEA annual conference is available here. This is the most prominent conference in Economics and the programme is a good guide to what the leading economists are interested in and a guide to areas that will be more prominent in coming years. As has been the case for the last several years, there are a number of sessions on behavioral economics, well-being and related areas. A few of them are pasted below. It is well-worth browsing through the full page:
