The 11th International Workshop on Empirical Methods in Energy Economics will be held in Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM)’s premises in the Palazzo delle Stelline (Milan, Italy) on 14-15 June 2018. This workshop follows the tradition of successful predecessors held in Zurich, Switzerland (2008), Jasper, Canada (2009), Guilford, England (2010), Dallas, Texas (2011), Berlin, Germany (2012), Ottawa, Canada (2013), Aachen, Germany (2014), College Park, Maryland (2015), Oviedo, Spain (2016), Los Angeles, USA (2017). It is intended as a forum for the development and application of empirical methods in energy economics. Details on previous workshops, along with information about joining the EMEE Network, can be found on the EMEE WEBPAGE.
To foster a lively debate and a comprehensive exchange of ideas about new empirical research in energy economics, the 2018 workshop will allow time for a full presentation and discussion of each contribution. All sessions are plenary (no concurrent presentations) to ensure the workshop participants’ attendance at all presentations.
All papers will be circulated in advance of the workshop so that participants have an opportunity to read them prior to the presentations. Participants are expected to attend the entire workshop and it is hoped that all participants will play a role as authors, discussants or session chairs. Doctoral students and young researchers are particularly encouraged to submit their papers. We especially welcome submissions based on novel econometric techniques, original and extensive datasets, rigorous study designs and having important policy implications.
The papers and posters for the 2018 workshop will be selected on the basis of extended abstracts (3-4 pages) structured as follows: 1) overview, 2) methods, 3) data and 4) preliminary results.
The deadline for submitting the extended abstracts (in PDF format) is March 30th, 2018. The abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee (see below), with acceptance decisions notified by April 16th, 2018. The extended abstract should be attached as PDF file to email sent to the local organizer at EMEE2018@FEEM.IT. Please write “EMEE paper submission” in the subject space. Registration will be possible from mid-April 2018, with the registration fee expected to be in the region of about €175. Further information about the registration will follow in early 2018. Final papers, which will be available from the conference website, need to be submitted by June 6th, 2018.
