Submit your paper

The Italian Association of Environmental and Resource Economists is glad to announce its Eleventh Annual Conference, to be held at the University of Naples Parthenope on February 23rd-24th, 2023. The Conference will be held in person, but given the uncertainties related to Covid, the possibility for a hybrid format will be considered.

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 2023 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 30rd, 2022. Submitted contributions are expected to be work in progress, at a reasonably advanced stage but still unpublished.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. Notification of submission acceptance in oral or poster sessions is expected by January 9th, 2023.


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.

Special sessions generally offer a forum for focused discussion in new areas or on innovative applications of established approaches. Those who are interested in submitting a proposal for a special session are invited to write an email to iaere@iaere.org, with the subject “IAERE 2023: Special session proposal”, specifying the title of the session, the speakers, the titles and abstracts of the four papers presented. The deadline for the special session submission is November 30th, 2022. The papers proposed shall be uploaded following the standard paper submission procedure, specifying “yes” under the question “Would you like to submit your paper to the special sessions?”. The papers will undergo the standard review and selection process. Notification of submission acceptance in special sessions is expected by January 9th, 2023
