This Conference will provide a conductive environment for a comprehensive exchange of ideas concerning new empirical research in energy, climate and environmental economics or policy analysis. Up-to-date theoretical or empirical issues are in particular encouraged. We especially welcome submissions based on novel econometric techniques, original and extensive datasets, rigorous study designs, or important policy implications. Papers contributing to policy decision-making are also welcome. One day of the Conference will be specifically addressing issues on energy and climate economic modelling, while other day may provide a room for more broad topics, covering inter alia rigorous policy analysis or dimension of international environmental relations. The event is designed to allow time for a full presentation and discussion of each contribution. All sessions are plenary. Additionally to several standard-format sessions, two keynote lectures are part of the Conference program. Doctoral students and young researchers are particularly encouraged to submit their papers. All accepted papers might be published – after a peer-review process– in Charles University Institute of Economic Studies’ Working Paper series enlisted in IDEAS/RePeC database. Possibility to publish the best presented papers in a special issue of IF journal is recently considered.
The papers for the 2016 Conference will be selected on the basis of extended abstracts (3-4 pages) structured as follows: overview, methods, data and preliminary results. Young researchers, in particular, may also submit a full paper that may be considered for Special Discussion session within that each paper will be in depth discussed.
There is no conference fee, but each participant will be expected to arrange and pay for their own travel and accommodation. Please, feel free to distribute this call to all who might be interested.
