Sixth IAERE Annual Conference
15-16 February 2018, Turin

Call for Papers

Deadline for paper submission: November 17th, 2017

IAERE is glad to announce its Sixth Annual Conference, to be held at the University of Turin on February 15th-16th, 2018. The call for papers is now open and submissions on all relevant topics related to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics are warmly invited.
As in previous editions, the 2018 IAERE Conference maintains a balanced interest on both theoretical and applied research, with a marked interest in policy implications.
Presentations both in English and in Italian will be possible, depending on the audience. Young researchers and PhD students who wish to attend are most welcome.


Extended abstracts (1.000‐1.500 words) or full papers should be submitted by November 17th, 2017.

Notification of submission acceptance is expected by January 8th, 2018. Submitted contributions are expected to be work in progress, at a reasonably advanced stage but still unpublished. Only .pdf files in English are accepted. All submissions will undergo the regular peer review process. Each author can submit a maximum of two co-authored works (and/or only one single-authored paper). In any case,  each conference participant can present only one paper.

During the Conference, the Association is granting its IAERE Young Environmental Economist Award, a recognition given to the best paper presented by a young economist at the Association’s Annual Conference. The Award aims to reward new ideas addressing key environmental and resource economic issues at the national, European and global scale. Both theoretical and empirical papers will be considered without any restriction of topics. Eligible candidates should be less than 33 years of age and no more than five years past a PhD defence should they have a PhD. Only full papers submissions will be considered: submitters of extended abstracts are not eligible for this award. Priority will be given to papers written by single author or multiple authors complying with the age requirement. There is a monetary reward of €1,000 for the presenter of the winning paper. The Selection Committee comprises the Conference Programme Committee and the IAERE Council, and is co-chaired by the IAERE President and the chair of the Conference Programme Committee. All eligible presenters can submit their candidacy to the Award at the paper submission process.

The IAERE 2018 Conference will host a special session on Agriculture and Environment, organized in collaboration with the Italian Association of Agriculture and Applied Economics (Associazione Italiana di Economia Agraria e Applicata - AIEAA). 
Special sessions generally offer a forum for focused discussion in new areas or on innovative applications of established approaches. We thus encourage submission of papers on two further specific topics: (i) Insurance responses to climate change and (ii) Advanced analytics in environmental economics and policy (e.g. big data, machine learning, agent-based simulation, environmetrics). Papers presented in these special sessions will undergo the standard review and selection process.
