Annual Conference

The Annual Conference of The Agricultural Economics Society will be held at K U Leuven, Belgium, from Wednesday 15th to Friday 17th of April 2020.

The Conference will feature a Keynote Address, delivered by Professor Louise Fresco (President of the Executive Board, Wageningen University & Research).

The Presidential Address will be given by Professor Janet Dwyer (University of Gloucestershire).

The economics of animal welfare symposium will be chaired by Helena Hansson (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) and the workshop on food and health will be chaired by Ellen Van Loo (Wageningen University).

Further details on the conference programme will be available in February.

The Agricultural Economics Society explicitly intends to support early-career researchers:

The participation of PhD students is encouraged; a restricted number of presentations embedded in the main Conference programme will be in the running for the Best PhD Presentation prize of £100 and receive targeted feedback from senior researchers.

Two best poster prizes of £250 each will be awarded to two early career researchers. We acknowledge financial support of Wiley for these prizes.

Accepted Contributed and Discussion Papers will be made available to delegates through the AES website before the conference. In addition, papers from the conference are normally archived on the AgEcon Search repository at the University of Minnesota. If you would rather not have your paper included on AgEcon search, please let us know on the submission form.
