Age-structured models in Natural Resource Economics

We invite presentations for the fifth workshop on age-structured models in natural resource economics. Both theoretical and empirical studies are welcome that integrate state-of-the-art ecological models and economics in fisheries, forestry and related fields. Examples of interesting questions include age- and size structured models, models with spatial structure, economic models with biological evolution and questions related to numerical computation of complex optimization models. There is no workshop fee, but also no support for travel and accommodation costs.

Please submit an abstract (1 page) to Martin Quaas ( by March 15, 2017. Notifications of paper acceptance: March 18, 2017. Registration deadline: March 22, 2017.
