Call for Papers: UC Berkeley Climate Economics Workshop

UC Berkeley is  currently soliciting papers from PhD students and post-docs for a climate economics workshop. The deadline for submissions is 9 A.M. December 9, 2019 (Pacific time zone).
They encourage papers by PhD students and post-docs undertaking research in any area related to the economics of climate change. They encourage papers that use empirical methods, theory or numerical modelling. Papers can be single authored or co-authored. No restrictions apply to co-authors, i.e. co-authors can be senior researchers.


The workshop will explore recent advances in climate economics, with an emphasis on the linkage between empirical and numerical modeling methods. One goal of the workshop is to bring junior and senior researchers together. The final program will combine presentations from invited leading senior researchers and presentations from the most promising junior researchers (PhD students and post-docs). This is the second workshop of this kind at UC Berkeley, a summary of the previous workshop can be found at  https://matrix.berkeley.edu/research/matrix-hosts-advanced-workshop-climate-economics


Applications should be submitted online at https://forms.gle/YgXHjPisEhGmAwv19. Please include either a full working paper or an extended abstract (1-2 pages). PhD students should include a brief letter of recommendation from their advisor that indicates that the submitted abstract/paper will be ready for a full presentation for the workshop.


The workshop will be held at UC Berkeley on Fri 1/31 and Sat 2/1, 2020. All travel and lodging costs will be covered for presenters.
The workshop is organized by David Anthoff (Energy and Resources Group, UC Berkeley), Max Auffhammer (Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, UC Berkeley) and Solomon Hsiang (Goldman School of Public Policy, UC Berkeley) in collaboration with the Social Science Matrix at UC Berkeley.
