Canadian Resource and Environmental Economics Study Group Annual Conference: It is our great pleasure to announce that the 26th annual meeting of the Canadian Resource and Environmental Economists (CREE) Study Group will be held September 30 through October 2, 2016, in Banff, Alberta. Proposal / paper submission The organizing committee invites the submission of abstracts (2 pages) or full papers on topics related to environmental, energy and resource economics. Submissions should be in PDF format and the submission deadline is June 30, 2016. Please go to http://economics.ca/cree/2016/call.php in order to submit your paper proposal to the organizing committee. Student travel grants CREE will provide up to six travel grants (up to $750 each) to Ph.D. students whose papers have been accepted for presentation at the conference. To be eligible for consideration for funding, a full paper must be submitted and the presenter of the paper has to be a graduate student. Students who are interested in applying for the grant must indicate their intention and provide information confirming eligibility at the time of submission by sending an email to cree2016@economics.ca . Contact information All inquiries should be sent to: cree2016@economics.ca Background The objective of CREE is to provide a forum for researchers and policy analysts in resource and environmental economics to share ideas, questions and research findings. The annual CREE conference is deliberately kept small, usually with about 20-30 papers selected for presentation and discussion, and about 60 delegates in attendance. This setting fosters a high level interaction among participants and results in valuable feedback for presenters. It also provides a setting for emerging scholars to meet and interact with academics and policy analysts from across the country and, indeed, from around the world. We look forward to seeing you in Alberta this fall! Jennifer Winter, Lucija Muehlenbachs and Pamela Campa Co-Chairs more>>
