For reimbursement please email the completed “guest reimbursement request” with copies of your receipts to: [email protected]

International Travel:

International airfares (for those not already reimbursed from other sources) will be covered by Robert Feenstra, using a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant held at the NBER. Under NSF rules, reimbursement can be made only for U.S. or European airlines. Please send an email to [email protected] prior to booking your international flight to confirm that it can be reimbursed.



Palmer House, where the conference will be located, has a very small number of overnight rooms. Unless you have been contacted by us to let you know that you will have a room at Palmer House, we will make a reservation for you at the Nassau Inn.

A room block is being held for May 24-27th (checking out May 28th) at the Nassau Inn in Princeton.

The Industrial Relations Section will absorb the cost of the Nassau Inn or Palmer House; however we must make your reservation by Friday April 21st. Please email [email protected] with your flight information (domestic or international) so that your hotel room can be reserved.

Note that we will pay only for the room and parking. Any additional charges will be yours to cover.

After your flight information is received (emailed to [email protected]), we will make reservations with A-1 car service to get you to and from the airport. A confirmation will be emailed to you.

If you need to contact A-1 directly, their telephone number is 1-800-367-0070.
