EAERE 18th Annual Conference
University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Rome Italy
29 June - 2nd July, 2011
PAPER SUBMISSION AND REGISTRATIONS ARE OPEN!
Deadline for submission of papers: February 1st, 2011
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is a great pleasure for us to invite you to Rome for the 18th Annual Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists. EAERE 2011 will be held on the campus of the University of Rome Tor Vergata, June 29th to July 2nd. It is organized jointly by the Department of Economics, Finance and Quantitative Methods (SEFEMEQ) and the Faculty of Economics. While the ‘eternal city’ is known worldwide, if only for its unparalleled past, the Tor Vergata campus is quite young, very dynamic and competitive. The Faculty of Economics was established only in 1987 but in a few years was able to reach the upper positions in the ranking of the Italian state universities. It has held the top one for two years in a row and currently is ranked in the first three. The Department hosts an intense research and teaching activity in environmental economics, with a PhD program in Environmental Law and Economics, a Laboratory on the environment and research partnerships with domestic and foreign institutions.
The conference programme will cover all areas of environmental and resource economics, ranging from topics prevailing in the general debate, such as climate change, Kyoto protocol, energy policy, ETS, green accounting, valuation methods to less publicized and very specialized subjects such as biodiversity loss, waste accumulation, toxic waste disposal, packaging reduction, adaptation to climate change, urban and transportation sustainability. We expect around 700 participants from all over the world, engaged in environment related activities in various capacities - researchers, teachers, students, professionals, policymakers, managers.
Rome ranks among the great world capitals. The city and its surroundings offer invaluable artistic, cultural and entertainment opportunities, and their landscape has a unique historical fascination. The University of Tor Vergata is located in the outskirt of the city , but is conveniently linked by underground to the city centre and central railway station (Stazione Termini), which is in turn the city terminal of the Aeroporto Internazionale Leonardo Da Vinci. The other airport, Ciampino, located along the Via Appia close to the Castelli Romani, is also conveniently connected to the campus and to the city centre.
We look forward to welcoming you in Rome in 2011!

CALL FOR PAPERS
You are invited to submit theoretical and applied papers in all areas of environmental and natural resource economics for presentation at the EAERE's annual conference to be held in Rome, Italy June 29 – July 2, 2011. All papers will undergo the regular peer review process regardless of the session in which they will be presented. Papers can only be submitted electronically through the conference website at www.eaere2011.org from November 15, 2010, onwards. Deadline for submission of papers is February 1, 2011. Notification of acceptance will be sent by April 18, 2011.
The Conference will be organized, as usual, through plenary sessions, parallel contributed and poster sessions and special sessions.
The conference programme will cover all areas of environmental and resource economics, ranging from topics prevailing in the general debate, such as climate change, Kyoto protocol, energy policy, ETS, green accounting, valuation methods to less publicized and very specialized subjects such as biodiversity loss, waste accumulation, toxic waste disposal, packaging reduction, adaptation to climate change, urban and transportation sustainability.
A pre-conference on Waste is also planned, together with a joint session with ICABR (International Consortium on Agricultural Biotechnology Research).
As it emerges, the conference promises to offer plenty of food for thought indeed!

The conference will be held in Tor Vergata’s University campus, which is located in the outskirts of Rome and is as modern and as organized as any other well-functioning campus of the world, and will unfold according to the pattern of past conferences. But when we come to social events, the power and spell of history will dominate them as they will take place in the most fascinating scenarios of this unique city. We want to give you that enjoyment and perception of human culture that only Rome, with its vast combination of ‘open’ and conventional museums, can provide!
