PhD Workshop - Monday 13th April - submissions now closed

Aimed specifically at postgraduate researchers, the event gives early career Agricultural Economists a chance to present work from their PhD studies - whether in the initial stages, or close to completion. Participants can choose a presentation format (quick, slow, or poster) to suit their work.

We have had a very good response - the programme gives a fascinating 'snapshot' of current PhD work in Ag Econ.
The workshop will also include tips and ideas for developing a career in Ag Econ and a presentation from Professor Nick Hanley on "How to get your paper published".

Call for Papers

The call is now closed.
Each year a diverse set of papers, centred on the discipline of Agricultural Economics, is selected for the conference programme. Sessions cover topics such as agricultural trade and policy, environmental
economics and policy, supply chain analysis, food demand and policy, behavioural economics, structural adjustment of agriculture, climate change impacts and mitigation, livestock production and disease, agricultural development, technology adoption, the economics of bioenergy, modelling and analysis techniques.
For 2015, the organisers are particularly encouraging submissions of papers that will have relevance for policy makers: these papers will have their own designated sessions on the programme.

Symposia and Workshops

Symposia - Invited speakers and presentations organised by members on current topics relating to Agricultural Economics.

Workshops - Interactive sessions, organised by members, with short presentations followed by discussion. Past workshops have addressed Bio-economic modelling, Uptake of low-carbon practices by farmers, and the economic contribution of traditional and local livestock breeds to rural development and resilience.
