UlvhusThe 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.

In 2018, the Ulvön conference is arranged in collaboration with the “Workshop On Non-Market Valuation” (WONV). The main objectives with WONV are to provide a forum for dissemination of high quality papers, present recent developments in theoretical and empirical analysis in the field of non-market valuation and create a network of researchers.

Although this year’s joint conference focus on non-market valuation research, contributions and presentations within any field of environmental and natural resource economics are very welcome. The 2018 conference admits about 40 participants and 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 Ulvön 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 19th and 21st. 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 submission deadline is March 16th, 2018. We encourage electronic submission of extended abstracts (1-2 pages). For the WONV part of the conference, a best paper award for young researchers will be announced. To be eligible for the award, a full paper needs to be submitted. Decisions of acceptance to the conference will be announced April 3rd. A link for registration will be provided and deadline for registering is April 16th.

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 submission. In addition, if your fee is not registered in our account before June 4th 2018 (remember that the payment might take a few days to show up in our account) we interpret it as a cancellation.
