Draft Program Released for ERSA Congress
The draft program is now online for the 2016 European Regional Science Association Congress.
No surprise that there are lots of presentations with some mention of transportation in the title. A couple of intriguing ones:
‘All roads lead to Rome . . .and to sprawl? Evidence from European cities’, Dr. Miquel-Angel Garcia-Lopez
(Are roads the reason we have sprawl?)
‘Let Tiebout pick up the tab: Pricing out externalities with free mobility’, Dr. Hiroki Watanabe
(Where would people choose to live if transportation were free?)
My own contribution to the program is a systematic analysis of how urban form is measured in scholarly literature published over the most recent decade. This was the first time I’ve used the systematic analysis approach with a citation database so it was an interesting tutorial in how to use these tools to fuel a lit review. Looking forward to presenting this small project to the regional science community next month.
