CALL FOR PAPERS | 5th Jean Paelinck Seminar on Regional Modeling/Spatial Econometrics & NECTAR Cluster 6 Meeting | 26–27 OCTOBER, 2012, Coimbra, Portugal




5th Seminar of Spatial Econometrics in honor

of Doctor J.H.P. Paelinck

NECTAR Cluster 6 on Accessibility



26–27 OCTOBER 2012, Coimbra, Portugal

This joint meeting on “Applied Research and Modeling Advances on Accessibility in Spatial Development” aims to gather interest in the areas of Spatial Econometrics, Accessibility and Spatial Development. It also aims to promote the link between Spanish and Portuguese in these research issues.

The research group Gaec (Grupo de Análisis Económico Cuantitativo) is organizing the 5th Seminar of Spatial Econometrics in honor of Doctor J.H.P. Paelinck, in Coimbra (Portugal). The workshop aims to provide a forum for debate between young and consolidated researchers and it is open to both theoretical and applied papers which deal explicitly with questions of spatial modeling and econometrics.

The 2012 Jean Paelinck Seminar is organized together with the NECTAR-Cluster 6 Meeting on accessibility. NECTAR (Network on European Communications and Transport Activities Research) is a Europe-based scientific association with a network culture. The primary objective is to foster research collaboration and exchange of information between experts in the field of transport, communication and mobility from all European countries and the rest of the world.

Considering the objectives of this joint meeting, the main thematic areas will be the following:

  • Accessibility and Transport Planning
  • Social and Cohesion Issues
  • New Issues in Accessibility
  • Accessibility, Land Use and Urban Planning
  • Spatial Econometric Modeling
  • Spatial Econometric Applications in Transport and Accessibility Studies

The authors should indicate in which type of session (Paelinck/NECTAR) they want to be included, also taking into account the six thematic areas above mentioned. The Scientific Committee will proceed with the final allocation according to the papers received and selected.

The workshop is structured on a series of invited lectures and open sessions. In this light, the received contributions will be selected by the Scientific Committee.
