The 4th Conference on Econometric Models of Climate Change: EMCC-IV 


The Center for European Studies (CefES) and the Department of Economics, Management and  Statistics (DEMS) at  the  University  of  Milano‐Bicocca,  together  with  CREATES at  Aarhus  University,  the  Department  of Economics  and  Finance  (DEF)  at  the  University  of Rome‐Tor Vergata, Climate Econometrics at the University of Oxford and the Department of Economics at the University of Victoria, are hosting the 4th Conference on Econometric Models  of  Climate  Change at  the  University  of  Milano‐Bicocca  (Milan,  Italy) on 29‐30  August 2019:‐iv 

The  conference  aims  at  promoting  an  interdisciplinary  approach  to the detection and  attribution of climate change, cross‐fertilization between climate science, economics and econometrics, and econometric estimates of climate impacts and policy evaluation. 

We  solicit  submissions  of  papers  whose  novelty  stems  from  the  development  and  introduction  of  new econometric  methods  to  models  of  climate  change – inviting  both papers using econometric methods to analyze climate data, as well as economic, financial and econometric studies of climate impacts. We also particularly welcome submissions in the field of climatology highlighting interesting statistical challenges to which econometric methods can contribute. 

Keynote speakers: Prof. D.F. Hendry (Oxford); Prof. S. Battiston (UTH, Zurich), Dr. S. Gualdi (CMCC, Bologna).
