The 19th International Workshop on Spatial Econometrics and Statistics is organized in Nantes on 28-29th May 2020. This edition follows previous workshops held annually in France since 2001 (Avignon, Besançon, Dijon, Grenoble, Orléans, Paris, Strasbourg, Toulon and Toulouse). The aim of this international workshop is to promote and develop scientific exchanges between economists, econometricians, statisticians, geographers and mathematicians on spatial econometrics and statistics and their applications in various fields of research. This workshop also aims to discuss the state-of-the-art and future challenges as well as opportunities in the fields of spatial econometrics and statistics and encourage exchanges between senior and junior researchers involved in spatial statistics and econometrics.

ws ses

All submissions in the fields of spatial statistics and spatial econometrics are welcome (methodology, applications etc.). Theoretical and applied studies with methodological advances in spatial econometrics and statistics can be submitted. We especially encourage submission by junior researchers. For this 19th edition, we also encourage submissions on issues related to environmental economics, agricultural economics and climate change modeling and their treatment in spatial econometrics and statistics.

The invited speakers are:

- Professor Badi Baltagi, Syracuse University (USA).
- Professor Yves Zenou, Monash University (Australia).

Cem Ertur Prize

As in previous years, a special session dedicated to the Cem Ertur prize will be organized, where selected applicants will present their contributions. They will benefit from an extended time for presentation and a thorough discussion by a senior researcher. The selection of the papers to be presented is made by a committee composed of the organizers of previous editions of the workshop. This committee will rank contributions based on referee reports and their own reading of the papers. Finally, the prizewinner will be announced during the conference dinner (more information on how to participate here).


Completed papers or long abstracts (at least 6 pages) should be submitted electronically in .pdf format on the submission page of the conference.
Submission deadline: March 15, 2020.
Notification of acceptance of papers: April 5, 2020.
Registration will be closed by: May, 5th 2020
