EAERE 2020
Berlin, Germany
24 Jun - 27 Jun 2020
25th Annual Conference
of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists

Call for Thematic and Policy Sessions

Deadlines for submissions

December 23, 2019 - Policy Sessions

January 31, 2020 - Thematic Sessions

 

There will be two types of pre-organised sessions at EAERE 2020 for which proposals are now invited.


(1) POLICY SESSIONS aim to advance the use of environmental and resource economics to support policy-making and to provide a forum of exchange between policy-makers and academics. Sessions are expected to be of interest to a broad audience of research economists. They will typically be formatted as short presentations followed by panel/roundtable discussions. Papers are not required. The Programme Committee will select a limited number of proposed Policy Sessions based on significance and originality. The Policy sessions will also run in parallel in much the same way as regular Parallel Sessions.


(2) THEMATIC SESSIONS aim to highlight current research on a subject in environmental and resource economics. Thematic sessions will consist of three to four papers connected by a unifying theme. The individual contributions are expected to be of very high quality, both with respect to the scientific content of the paper and the presentation. The Programme Committee will select a limited number of proposed Thematic Sessions based on scientific quality and originality. The proposed papers for these sessions will undergo the normal refereeing process; only papers that are approved will be included in the programme. The thematic sessions will run in parallel in much the same way as regular Parallel Sessions.
