The Ulvön Conference is a forum for dissemination of high quality research in the field of environmental and natural resource economics. The conference provides a great opportunity for PhD students and senior economists to build networks and interact with leading researchers within their field. One session (2-3 presentations) will be devoted to issues related to hydropower. This session is sponsored by Luleå University of Technology and organized by This email address is being protected from spambots.

The conference is held annually on the island of Ulvön (pictures from Ulvön), a small fishing hamlet that is part of UNESCOs world heritage. The island is located on the Swedish east-coast, approximately 500 km North of Stockholm and the venue is a modern hotel placed on the island. You can find information about earlier meetings via this link.

There is a conference fee of 500 EUR, 200 EUR for presenting PhD students, which includes food, lodging and all transportation to and from the relevant airports (either Örnsköldsvik (OER) or Umeå (UME)) on the 15th and 17th. The times to get on the bus (trip begins in Umeå and then proceeds southbound to Örnsköldsvik) and the return trip times are listed here. We are constrained by limitations at the site and, due to us all staying at the same hotel, participants will be placed in shared rooms with same gender participants. If the capacity constraints are exceeded, the organizing committee will accept papers based on timeliness and quality (both parameters have positive weights in the decision function, so the earlier the better). Provide a title (and abstract) for a suggested presentation when you register. Abstract deadline and registration is May 18th, 2016. We encourage electronic submission of manuscripts.

UlvulvGiven the previous proportion of "no-shows", the following incentive-program has been imposed. The conference fee has to be pre-paid and a registration link will be sent to accepted participant shortly upon registration. In addition, if your fee is not registered in our account before June 5th 2016 (remember that the payment might take a few days to show up in our account) we interpret this as a cancellation.

Selected papers will be recommended for Journal of Forest Economics
