The INFER workshop on “Economic Geography, Agglomeration and Environment” will take place in Corte, France.

The aim of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to researchers to exchange their ideas on agglomeration and environment. We wish to focus the discussions around two main topics: first, the economic dynamics of regions and urban expansion on which researchers can broach the questions of the cities and regions size, specialization and inter-connexions in a globalized world economy; second, the effects of agglomeration process on the environment, the impact on citizens welfare, on firms and people location choices, the environmental policies that may be set up and their impact on the agglomeration dynamics.

They have extended the submission deadline for this workshop which hosts three keynotes :

  • Philip McCann (University of Groningen)
  • Michael Rauscher (University of Rostock)
  • Cees Withagen (VU University Amsterdam)

New deadline for paper submission is July 2nd, 2015.
