Call for Venue 2020
ITEA invites proposals for a venue and local organizer for its 2020 annual conference and school. Natural candidates are universities, research institutions, or other organizations in the field. The 2018 conference was held at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, organized by the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies and the C.Y. Tung International Centre for Maritime Studies of the Faculty of Business. The 2019 conference will be at Paris School of Economics (PSC). The 2017 conference was at the University of Barcelona, organized by Institut d’Economia de Barcelona (IEB). The previous four venues were the Universidad de Chile in Santiago, Chile, for 2016; Institute of Transport Economics (TØI) in Oslo for 2015; Toulouse School of Economics for 2014; and Northwestern University in the Chicago area for 2013. We are interested in all regions and continents, striving to rotate among them.
The Conference and School normally take place from Monday through Friday, 2-1/2 days for the School followed by 2-1/2 days for the Conference. The usual dates have been in the months of June or July, but alternative dates can be proposed.
