Heartland Workshop: October 26-27, 2024

Abstract submission is now open!

Deadline for Abstract Submissions: June 28, 2024.

The Heartland Environmental and Resource Economics Workshop will be held for the fourteenth year from Saturday, October 26 to Sunday, October 27, 2024, at the Illini Union on the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus. Topics for contributed paper sessions will be chosen based on the submissions we receive and will not be limited to the theme of the keynote and panel.

Keynote address:

Frances C. Moore, UC Davis

“Issues and Questions in Current Federal Climate and Energy Policy”

The day-and-a-half long workshop (mid-morning Saturday through mid-afternoon Sunday) will feature:

  • A luncheon on Saturday with a keynote talk.
  • A luncheon on Sunday with a panel discussion.
  • Multiple sessions of contributed 20-minute paper presentations.
  • Two sets of 8-minute short research presentations.
  • Research posters displayed during breaks and a reception.
  • Numerous breaks to share ideas and develop new collaborations.

The goals of HERE@Illinois are, as always, to stimulate research and build community in environmental economics with partial focus on the Midwest. The workshop will bring people together to exchange ideas and foster new collaborations. Through selected paper sessions, it will identify pressing public policy issues and emerging research themes on environmental and resource economics. Finally, it will provide networking and development opportunities for graduate students and early career scholars in environmental and resource economics.

Registration numbers are limited to 80 to keep the size of the event conducive to an active exchange of ideas. Spread the word and tell your colleagues and graduate students! We hope to see you in Urbana-Champaign in October.

2024 Organizing Committee: Professors Shadi Atallah, Sandy Dall’Erba,  Tatyana Deryugina, Andy Hultgren, Jared Hutchins, Madhu Khanna, Bill Ridley, Becca Taylor, and Yilan Xu from the University of Illinois.
