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.

Covid specifics: The conference is planned to take place in person at Ulvön. For travelling guidelines and potential restrictions, please stay updated with the Public Health Agency of Sweden webpage. 

The 2022 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, 300 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 21st and 23rd. 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 have in the past had participants share rooms (with same gender participants), however due to resent pandemic; any participant that do not wish to share, will not have to. 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 April 22nd, 2022. We encourage electronic submission of extended abstracts (1-2 pages). Decisions of acceptance to the conference will be announced May 4th (please observe new date). A link for registration will be provided and deadline for registering is May 18th (please observe new date).

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 2022 (remember that the payment might take a few days to show up in our account) we interpret it as a cancellation.
