The abstract submission for the XLIV Meeting of Regional Science and the V Valencian Conference of Regional Science, which are organised by the Spanish and Valencian Associations of Regional Science, is open. The Conference will be held at Tarongers Campus of the University of Valencia, from 21st to 23rd of November, 2018.
The motto for the Conference is "Approaching to an economic model more social and sustainable". The sessions of the Conference will include a wide range of topics, which will be grouped in 18 subject areas and special sessions. We are pleased to announce that Prof. Roberta Capello (Politecnico di Milano) will join the Conference as keynote speaker.
Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and uploaded to the members' areabefore May 14th of 2018 using the attached template. As well as the previous years, you will be able to submit the results of an ongoing research even if it is not a complete paper yet. The Scientific Committee will consider the acceptance of this kind of work through the submission of a long abstract, which should have a minimum extension of 1,500 words. The template of abstract and further information about the Conference are attached.
Unpublished papers written by researchers of an age under 33 years and presented at the parallel sessions are eligible for the Juan Ramón Cuadrado Young Researchers' Prize. The jury that will grant the Prize is the Scientific Committee of the Conferences. The authors of the paper awarded with the prize will receive an accreditation for the award and a gift.
PhD students in the first stages of their dissertations and master degree students with a research orientation will enjoy reduced registration fees that will let them access to the parallel sessions of the Conference, and participate in the special session for young researchers also. There, they will present briefly their research ideas, preferably through posters.
We are looking forward to your participation and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you at València.
