ITEA Annual Conference and Summer School (Kuhmo Nectar) 2015
ITEA is happy to announce that the 2015 ITEA annual conference and summer school (Kuhmo Nectar) will be held in Oslo, Norway, at the Institute of Transport Economics (TØI), on June 15-19, 2015.
Welcome to the web site of the International Transportation Economics Association. The Association aims to foster transportation economics as a thriving discipline, based on strong research and research-supported policy applications.
Our 2014 conference and summer school, hosted by the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE), were attended by 125 researchers and students from all over the world. For my thoughts concerning this conference and ITEA, see interview on the conference
Our conference and summer school in 2013, held at Northwestern University near Chicago, were attended by 140 researchers and students. This was our first conference in North America, so we are very gratified by its success. As you can tell from our web site, the 2015 conference will be in Oslo.
We are eagerly soliciting proposals for a venue for 2016.
ITEA sponsors a journal, Economics of Transportation, which has already published some first-rate issues and has more in the works. We expect it to quickly become recognized throughout the economics profession as a leading outlet for research. We also have a group on LinkedIn and a newsletter complete with provocative guest essays. Join us!
