2017 Conference on Climate Econometrics
The next conference on econometric models of climate change will take place at Nuffield College, University of Oxford, on September 4th-5th, 2017.
Climate econometrics has emerged as a field tackling climate problems using econometric methods: from analyzing observational climate data and results from climate models using econometric methods, to empirically estimating the impacts of climate variables onto socio-economic outcomes.
Econometric interest in climate change and its complex data environment has grown to the point that it can be considered a developing field within econometrics.
The Climate Econometrics programme at the University of Oxford, together with Aarhus University and CREATES, are hosting a conference on the econometrics of climate change at Nuffield College, University of Oxford, United Kingdom, on September 4-5, 2017.
Details on local accommodation and logistics will be provided in late spring 2017.
Call for papers:
We solicit submissions of papers whose novelty stems from the development and introduction of new econometric methods to models of climate change – inviting both papers using econometric methods to analyze climate data, as well as econometric studies of climate impacts. We particularly welcome submissions in the field of climatology highlighting interesting statistical challenges to which econometric methods can contribute.
Join the Climate Econometrics network to receive conference updates.
Please send titles and abstracts (or completed papers) no later than May 31st, 2017 to one of the organizers:
