I spent last week preparing a manuscript for submission to the EAERE 2009 conference (instead of writing posts here, obviously…). EAERE 2009 is the annual conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, to be held in Amsterdam in June. I attended EAERE 2008 in Gothenburg last year, and it was a great experience. I’ve not been to very many conferences, but when my supervisor, who has been going to conferences since the seventies, said it was one of the best he had ever been to, I feel confindent when I say it was a great conference. Now, all I need is my contribution to be accepted, some financial support of course, and I’m off!
