EAERE 2024
Leuven, Belgium
01 Jul - 04 Jul 2024
29th Annual Conference
of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists

Registration guidelines

This year we received over 1,500 submissions, which is an all-time record!

The conference programme will reflect the high quality level of the accepted papers.

This year’s Conference venue can accommodate a maximum of 700 participants.
This planning is consistent with participation in previous years.
However, since there was a record number of paper submissions this year, we are experiencing a demand for in-person participation that exceeds our capacity.

*** Currently, the maximum number of in-person participants we can accept has been reached. ***

Therefore, we have closed registration for in-person participation. If you are interested in participating in-person, please email eaere@eaere.org and ask to be placed on a waiting list. If there are any cancellations, we will call the first people placed on the waiting list.

Please do consider participating in our online programme! 

Our online programme featrues plenary sessions, high-level policy sessions and thematic sessions, and the institutional events.

We encourage you to register for online participation and take part in the large selection of sessions that is being offered online.

EAERE made an effort to keep registration fees for online participation as low as possible, even lower than last year. We hope that this can make online participation more attractive and affordable for all, making our event as inclusive as possible. 

 

 


The Conference will take place in person, with a portfolio of online events as part of the programme.

Presentations will be held exclusively in person: all presenters must attend in person (remote presentation is not foreseen). If you are a presenting author, please be aware that by registering for the EAERE2024 Conference, you commit to being available throughout the duration of the conference and accept that your presentation may be scheduled on any of the three days of the conference that include presentations (2-4 July).

Online participation is available to attend plenary, thematic, and policy sessions in streaming mode.

Registration is required for both in-person and online participation.

EAERE membership in the year 2024 is a requirement to attend the Conference. Non-members are requested to join EAERE as part of the Conference registration process.

This year the Conference venue can accommodate a maximum of 700 participants.
This number is comparable to the number of participants of the last two years, but since there was a record number of paper submissions this year, there may be a demand for participation that exceeds our capacity.

To mitigate this situation, this year we are handling the registration process as follows:
• registration will be organised as a two-step process, prioritising presenters of accepted papers. Each accepted paper is presented by one person only. A first round of registrations will be open to presenting authors only and will be followed by a second round of registrations open to all. Registration for in-person participation will close when we reach maximum capacity.
• EAERE made an effort to keep registration fees for online participation as low as possible, even lower than last year. We hope that this can make online participation more attractive and affordable for all, making our event as much inclusive as possible.

  • In the case that the Organisers of the event are unable to deliver it in the format originally envisaged (hybrid format, with in-person and online participation) and are forced to hold the event in a fully online format or to cancel it permanently, due to acts of God, an outbreak of severe contagious epidemic preventing the organisers from running the event, war, civil commotion, fire, flood or other casualties, major strikes, labour difficulties, shortages of labour, materials or equipment, government regulations, unusually severe weather, or other causes beyond its reasonable control, the Organisers shall not be liable to any other party for any damages resulting from this situation, and shall not refund registration fees.

VISA

Belgium is a European Union member state and part of the Schengen zone. Travelling to Belgium is easy and the documentation required varies, depending on your nationality.
For European citizens, a national identity card or passport is usually sufficient. In case of doubt, please check with your home country foreign office which travel documents you need for traveling to Belgium.
For third countries, Schengen Visa holders are allowed to enter Belgium. The Schengen Visa makes traveling between 25 member countries (22 European Union member states and 3 non-EU members) much easier and less bureaucratic. Traveling on a Schengen visa means that the visa holder can travel to any (or all) member countries using one single visa, thus avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country. A Schengen visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen countries for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 6 month period.

Citizens of these countries are required to have a visa to enter Belgium.

Citizens of these countries are not required to have a visa to enter Belgium.

The Local Organising Committee will, on request, provide an invitation letter to conference participants who need to obtain a visa.

Please register for the conference (which includes the payment of the registration fee) and then request an invitation letter by sending your request to eaere2024@kuleuven.be, together with:
a) a copy of your passport,
b) your full affiliation,
c) full professional address.
Incomplete requests will not be considered.


Please do allow ample time, as the process of applying for a visa can be lengthy.
