Welcome to the Third AERE Summer Conference
The AERE Summer Conferences are held annually except during the years with the World Congress of Environmental and Resource Economics.
This year the conference will include a pre-conference workshop on "Recent Advances in Program and Policy Evaluation" with Paul Ferraro (Georgia State University) and Dan Millimet (Southern Methodist University). The conference itself will have nine sets of concurrent general sessions, graduate student sessions, and a set of sponsored paper sessions. The theme of the sponsored sessions is “Mixing Oil and Water: The Nexus between Energy and Water Resources.”
We are very pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for AERE 2013 will be Prof. James Salzman (Duke University and the Nicholas School of the Environment). His talk is entitled “Drinking Water - A History.”
We welcome you all to Banff, Alberta, Canada and The Banff Centre. The Banff Centre is an arts and educational center whose mission is Inspiring Creativity. We are certain that the wonderful natural surroundings and the excellent scholarship will help inspire all of us at this year’s AERE summer conference.
