Welcome to Reykjavík, Iceland!

Important Dates*

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 76th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance (IIPF 2020)!

The congress main theme is Public Finance, Natural Resources and Climate Change. In line with this theme, the congress provides a venue for presenting and discussing cutting-edge research in public economics of natural resources. The conference main theme should also accommodate fruitful discussion of the public economics of climate change, both with respect to actions to slow that process and the public economics consequences of climate change.

The Icelandic economy is largely based on harnessing the riches of nature. Iceland is also at the boarder of the Arctic region which stands to be disproportionally affected by climate change. Thus the main theme of the conference and her location are in good harmony. As is traditional at IIPF congresses, next to the main theme the program includes presentations from a wide range of topics in all areas of public economics.

Plenary lectures will be given by keynote speakers Anna Alberini (University of Maryland, USA), Karen Palmer (Resources for the Future, USA), Ottmar Edenhofer (University of Technology Berlin and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Germany), and Rick van der Ploeg (University of Oxford, UK). There will be about 100 contributed-paper sessions with 300-400 papers that address a wide range of policy-relevant public finance issues using state-of-the art methods. The program features scholars from around the world, and promises to be both stimulating and informative.

We look forward to seeing you in Reykjavík, Iceland, and wish you all an enjoyable and productive congress!
