Post-Conference Workshop

The 2009 Workshop on the use of experimental methods in environmental, natural resource, and agricultural economics will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Burlington, Vermont, on June 9-10, immediately following the annual meeting of the Northeastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Association (NAREA). Over the last half-century, economic experiments have provided researchers with a better understanding of human behavior and the performance of public policies. The goal of the workshop is to highlight high quality experimental research, explore the application of these methods to policy problems, and to educate researchers about the methodology. The workshop will include keynote presentations from Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith and Jason Shogren.

A special issue of the Agricultural and Resource Economics Review (ARER) will be published from workshop papers accepted after an expedited version of the journal’s normal peer-review process. An honorarium of $1,000 will be provided for selected papers upon submission to ARER.
