Valued colleague, dear friend,

Due to the high number of petitions received, we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline for the XLV Reunió d’Estudis Regionals and the  VI Jornades Valencianes d’Estudis Regionals until 30 May  2019.

We take this opportunity to remind you that the Conference will take place at the Campus of the University Jaume I of Castelló, from the 20th to the 22th of November, 2019, with the motto “Tackling with societal, technological and climate challenges in peripheral territories.”. Conference sessions will include also a wide range of topics, grouped in 20 subject areas and 17 special sessions. We are pleased to announce that Prof. Professor Raquel Ortega Argilés (University of Birmingham) and Professor Jérôme Vicente (Université de Toulouse) will join the Conference as Keynote Speakers.

We have as a novelty in this edition  a special issue of Regional Science Policy & Practice, a journal linked to the International Regional Science Association (RSAI), will be published on the conference theme, that is, Tackling with societal, technological and climate challenges in peripheral territories.

We will be grateful if you spread this information among any person that may be interested to participate. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and uploaded to the members’ area. This year you can submit the results from ongoing research even if there is not a complete paper available yet. The Scientific Committe will consider for acceptance the submission of long abstracts, with a minimum extension of 1,500 words. Templates for all the types of abstracts, can download it from the webpage.

You can find all the information for registration and submission at the XLV Reunión de Estudios Regionales web page.

Looking forward to meet you at Castelló!
