FORTHCOMING SEMINAR

«SECOND AERNA WORKSHOP ON GAME THEORY AND THE ENVIRONMENT» 

Game Theory analyses strategic situations where one agent’s actions affect other
agents’ outcomes, and vice versa. Game Theory is particularly useful for analyzing
problems dealing with externalities and public goods, which are key features of most
environmental problems. As a result, Game Theory has been applied extensively in
environmental and natural resource economics over the last decades.
Building on the success of the First Workshop celebrated in 2015, the Workshop will
bring together researches affiliated to the AERNA Working Group on Game Theory and
Environmental and Resource Economics, and invites submissions of papers that deal
with environmental and resource economics problems using any of the branches of
Game Theory. Theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome, including, but not
limited to, coalition formation, dynamic games, bargaining, behavioral economics and
experimental economics.
Although completed papers are welcome, the Workshop encourages particularly the
submission of ongoing research or papers which are not completely finished. The
format of the meeting (with about one hour per presentation) will allow extensive
discussions about each one of the papers accepted. Submissions by PhD students are
particularly encouraged.
There is no registration fee. Lunch, soft drinks and coffee will be served during the
workshop free of charge. Each participant is supposed to cover the remaining own
expenses.
