The main purpose of the Ulvön Conference on Environmental Economics is to provide a forum for the dissemination of high quality research in environmental economics. Ulvön is a small, attractive fishing hamlet, located on the Swedish east-coast, approximately 500 km North of Stockholm. The number of conference participants is typically about 30. A key purpose of the Ulvön meetings is to provide an opportunity for PhD students to interact with leading researchers in their field of specialization. You can find information about earlier meetings via this link.

There is a conference fee of 400 EUR, which includes food, lodging and all transportation to and from the relevant airports (either Örnsköldsvik (OER) or Umeå (UME)). 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. Students may apply for being exempted from the fee, if they present a paper. We are constrained by limitations at the site. 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). Suggested presentations for this session can be submitted through the regular submission page. Provide a title (and abstract) for a suggested presentation when you register. Abstract deadline is 15 May, 2015. We encourage electronic submission of manuscripts.

Given the previous proportion of "no-shows", the following incentive-program has been imposed. The conference fee has to be pre-paid. An accepted student paper translates to a complete rebate of the fee on personal appearance. The conference fee will be returned under one additional condition, namely that we find no space for your paper in the program. A student without paper will have 75% of the fee returned. In addition, if your fee is not registered in our account before June 2nd 2015 (any proof of transaction before 1 June will also do) we interpret this as a cancellation.
Selected papers will be refereed for a special issue of Journal of Forest Economics.
