There are a couple of conferences that you should definitely try to attend if you are an environmental economist.

Firstly, there is EAERE in Manchester, UK, 26-29 June 2019. That’s going to be the place to be if you want to meet everyone in environmental economics and drink good UK beer before Brexit destroys that opportunity.

Then you should go to ISEFI in Paris, France, 23-24 May 2019, which, apart from blatant advertising as I am one of the co-organizers, is also a great event if you are into finance, energy, and environmental economics. Plus you get the added value of a lovely weekend in Paris, and who could say no to that. Submit your papers asap.

Then there is IRMBAM held in Nice, France, 8-10 July 2019. If you are an environmental economist, send your papers to the sub-conference in environmental economics. I am a co-organizer of that together with Cees Withagen and Eric Strobl. Nice, needless to say, is nice. If you are drawn between the PET conference and our sub-conference at IRMBAM, then that’s already a mistake. Keynote speakers in our subconference are Carolyn Fischer and Anthony Millner. Submit asap.

Then there is the LEEPin2019: LEEP Institute’s Meeting of International Excellence in Environmental and Resource Economics, 24-25 June 2019, at the University of Exeter, which promises to be an excellent conference. It’s just preceeding EAERE, so you can basically city-hop from one great event to the next. Reduces shoe leather costs and minimizes your carbon footprint.

Then you should attend the environmental economics workshop in St Petersburg, May 31 – June 1, 2019, which is the 5th International Workshop on Economic Growth, Environment and Natural Resources. Unfortunately submissions are closed but you can still attend. I am also one of the co-organizers, and judging by the papers we selected this is going to be a classy event!

In addition there is FAERE held in Rennes, France, 29-30 August 2019. It’s the conference of the French Association of Environmental and Resource Economists. If you are into environmental economists, surprise surprise, or cathedrals, that’s the place to be at the end of August.

Now that you are up to date, carpe diem!

 

We warmly invite you to submit your paper for presentation in the Subconference on Environmental Economics, organized by Ingmar Schumacher (IPAG Business School), Eric Strobl (University of Bern, Switzerland), and Cees Withagen (IPAG Business School and VU University, Amsterdam, Netherlands) at the 9th International Research Meeting in Business and Management that will take place on 5-7th  July 2018 in Nice, France. We welcome both theoretical and empirical contributions on environmental economics and resource and energy economics, with emphasis on climate change economics; green growth; welfare, discounting and sustainable development; uncertainty and irreversibilities in dynamic resource use; the nexus between population, economic growth and the environment; environmental policy; as well as empirical studies that focus on economic aspects of the environment.

The keynote lectures will be held by Knut Einar Rosendahl (School of Economics and Business, Norwegian University of Life Science, Norway) and  Nicolas Treich (Toulouse School of Economics, France).

Only papers in English are considered. They must be submitted electronically at

http://ipag-irm.sciencesconf.org/. Please choose the Topic “Subconference in Environmental Economics”.

The « Ecological-Economic Resilience of Ecosystems » symposium will focus on the concept of resilience for the quantitative analysis and management of ecosystems. Resilience, which is often related to sustainability and vulnerability, describes the ability of a system to cope with shocks arising from natural or anthropogenic events such as climatic catastrophes, pollution, financial crisis or epidemics. The intrinsic complexity of these ecosystems and socio-ecosystems at the interface of human dynamics and natural dynamics requires interdisciplinary approaches and in particular an ecological-economic viewpoint.
In this context, the symposium will pay particular attention to the following applications: Marine or coastal ecosystems, water resources, agrosystems and viticulture, forest ecosystems and heath systems. The symposium intends to give major insights into the following issues: How to quantify ecological-economic resilience? What are its drivers? Which strategies and public policies can improve this resilience?
The interdisciplinary symposium will bring together economists, ecologists, epidemiologists, and mathematicians. Keynote lectures will be given by internationally recognized researchers in the field:
Stefan Baumgärtner (Germany),
Quentin Grafton (Australia),
Michel Loreau (France).
You are invited to submit a full paper in English before February 18th, 2018. All Submissions have to be sent to: emmanuelle.augeraud@u-bordeaux.fr

The GREThA, in collaboration with the University of Bordeaux, CNRS, and FAERE, organizes an interdisciplinary symposium dedicated to the resilience of ecosystems.

The UECE – Research Unit on Complexity and Economics and the Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão of the Lisbon School of Economics and Management will host the ninth edition of the UECE Lisbon Meetings, which will take place on November 9th-11th, 2017.

At this conference I will organize two sessions in environmental economics. The participants will be Cecilia Vergari, Fabien Prieur, Nicolas Querou, Martin Quaas, Reyer Gerlagh, Charles Figuieres and myself. I would like extend a big thanks to the conference organizers, Filomena, Luca and Joana2 for making this happen and accepting us bunch of environmental economists.

In addition, Neslihan Uler will organize a special session in experiments and environmental economics (participants will be Neslihan Uler, Michael Price and Kjell Arne Brekke). Thus we have what I believe to be an interesting group of environmental economists at this game theory conference. Please show up if you are interested!

IMPORTANT:
1) you have to submit your paper to the conference before 31st July: https://www.lisbonmeetings.com/participate

2) registration will be open from 1st September

3) conference will be 9-11 November

For further information look at https://www.lisbonmeetings.com/. In case you can’t find what you need, send me a mail and I hope to be able to help.

Together with Cees Withagen and Eric Strobl I organized the IPAG Workshop New Challenges in Environmental Economics 2017, which we held on the 4th and 5th of April 2017 in Paris and which was financed by IPAG Business School. We were really happy to have an impressive line-up of speakers, with a good mix of theory, empirical and experimental papers.

For those interested here is the Programme. This will be a recurring event at IPAG so keep your eyes open!

On Sunday 5th March there is the deadline for submissions to the ISEFI conference, organized by IPAG Business School in Paris, to be held 22-23 May 2017. Eric Strobl, Cees Withagen and myself are organizing the environmental economics half of that conference, while the rest of the conference will focus on energy and finance. Keynote speakers are Amy Myers Jaffe and Richard S.J. Tol. You can find more information and submission guidelines here: https://isefi.sciencesconf.org/   Please do consider presenting your article if you feel you have a nice contribution to environmental economics that you would like to share with us.
