The Ulvön Conference on Environmental Economics will be held at 21-23 June, 2011.

The conference attracts senior economists from all over the world. This year keynote speakers include:

Geir Asheim, University of Oslo

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. Initiated in 1993, a key purpose is to allow PhD students to present their work and interact with a number of leading researchers in the field. The conference is held at Ulvön (the Wolf Island) a small, attractive old fishing hamlet located along the high coast, about 500 km north of Stockholm.

As part of this year conference, a course will be given in the treatment of non-linearities, threshold effects and catastrophic risk in dynamic resource management. The course will be applied in nature and analytical methods covered to the extent that they are required to formulate problems and understand solutions. Thus both analytical and numerical methods will be taught. There are no formal prerequisites but a solid understanding of deterministic optimal control theory is required to successfully follow the course. Interested students may after completion take an exam for credit. The course will start one day before the Conference, i.e. June 20.
