The inaugural AERE Summer Conference is held in Seattle, June 9-10, 2010. The conference will be an annual event (except for World Congress years) and will be larger in scope than has been the AERE Workshop in previous years. It will, however, retain many features of the workshop that have helped make it such a success throughout the years.
The conference will feature several parallel tracks (General Sessions) covering all topics of interest to environmental and natural resource economists. In addition to the general call for papers, the Conference will include one track of Sponsored Sessions that will extend throughout the two-day conference. This track will focus on a single topic. The theme for the 2011 Invited Sessions is Metropolises, Urbanization and the Environment.
