2018 EMCC-III CONFERENCE
ECONOMETRIC MODELS OF CLIMATE CHANGE
SEPTEMBER 6-7TH 2018, UNIVERSITY OF ROME “TOR VERGATA”
The Department of Economics and Finance at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, together with CREATES at Aarhus University, and Climate Econometrics at the University of Oxford, are hosting the 3rd Conference on “Econometric Models of Climate Change” at Villa Mondragone, University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, Via Frascati 51, 00040 Monteporzio Catone, Italy, on September 6th -7th, 2018.
The conference aims at promoting an interdisciplinary approach to the detection and attribution of climate change and cross-fertilization between climate science and econometrics.
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.
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 (http://www.climateeconometrics.org/network/) to receive conference updates.
