Spanish Section | I International on-line Conference on Regional Science, November 26-27, 2020

Dear members and colleagues of the Spanish Association of Regional Science,

As you know, the circumstances we are experiencing have forced us to postpone our annual meeting to 2021. Hopefully by the fall of next year the situation will be safer and we can meet and enjoy our International Conference on Regional Science. Meanwhile we have organized what I think is a very interesting and dynamic virtual meeting that, although it does not intend to replace our face-to-face meeting, I believe that it will provide us with the appropriate space to generate interaction and reflection from our community.

The theme of this I Online Conference of Regional Science is “Cities and regions in times of COVID-19”.

On November 26 and 27 we will celebrate this online meeting in which we will have an extraordinary plenary conference, given by Professor Andrés Rodríguez-Pose, and an exceptional round table on the impacts on cities and regions of the global health crisis, given by Professors Phill McCann, Alessandra Faggian and Raúl Ramos. In addition, we have prepared poster sessions to discuss our work in progress and a course on geo-referenced data analysis that will be taught by Daniel Arribas-Bell and Federico Pablo-Martí.

I want to thank the great work that the local organizing committee and the scientific committee are doing. You have all the information about this virtual meeting in this link or in the pdf brochure that we attach with this email.

Registration and participation in all activities is completely free for AECR members.

The cost for non-members is 100 euros, although I encourage you to join for a lower cost and be able to participate in both this activity and all the advantages of being a member of the AECR, including full membership in both the European Regional Science Association (ERSA) and the Regional Science Association International (RSAI).

Write down the dates of this event. We count on your participation. We will send you the call for the poster sessions and other additional information shortly.

Warm regards,

Fernando Rubiera Morollón

President of the Spanish Association of Regional Science
