A cette occasion, un appel à communications est lancé :

Workshop Objectives:
The aim of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to researchers to exchange their ideas on agglomeration and environment. We wish to focus the discussions around two main topics: first, the economic dynamics of regions and urban expansion on which researchers can broach the questions of the cities and regions size, specialization and inter-connexions in a globalized world economy; second, the effects of agglomeration process on the environment, the impact on citizens welfare, on firms and people location choices, the environmental policies that may be set up and their impact on the agglomeration dynamics.
We invite researchers to submit both empirical and theoretical papers that are broadly consistent with at least one of these subjects. The special topic of the workshop will be Economic Geography, Agglomeration and Environment. Papers that address these questions through the field of (New) Economic Geography are especially welcomed.

Keynote Speakers :
We are happy to welcome the following internationally distinguished keynote speakers:
> Michael Rauscher (University of Rostock, Germany)
> Cees Withagen (VU University Amsterdam, Netherlands)
