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.

The 2023 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. Photos from previous Ulvö conferences can be found on the CERE Facebook.

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 20th and 22nd. The times to get on the bus (trip begins in Umeå and then proceeds southbound to Örnsköldsvik) and the return trip times are listed below.

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 5th, 2023. We encourage electronic submission of extended abstracts (1-2 pages). Decisions of acceptance to the conference will be announced April 26th. A link for registration will be provided and deadline for final registering is May 17th.

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.
