Fifth IAERE Annual Conference will be held at the University of Rome Tor Vergata on February 16th-17th, 2017. The call for papers is now open and submissions on all relevant topics related to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics are warmly invited. 

The 2017 Conference will maintain a balanced interest on both theoretical and applied research; nonetheless it seems particularly important to emphasize/derive policy implications/guidance from the works thereby presented.

Presentations both in English and in Italian will be possible, depending on the audience. Young researchers and especially PhD students who wish to attend are most welcome.


Extended abstracts (1.000-1.500 words) or full papers should be submitted by November 18th, 2016.

Notification of submission acceptance is expected by January 10th, 2017. Submitted contributions are expected to be work in progress. 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 a maximum of one paper if he/she is the only author), and in any case, 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 paper 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.
