Dear colleagues,

I would like to share with you some very interesting events and calls just around the corner.


First, the 174 EAAE Seminar Economics of culture and food in evolving agri-food systems and rural areas will be held in Matera, next 10-12 October 2019. The seminar aims to promote academic debate about food and rural cultures (in the different meanings mentioned above) and their implications for agricultural and food economics, with either an individual, chain and/or system perspective. In particular, the seminar wants to fuel interaction among different branches of agricultural and food economics that consider partial aspects of culture, in order to promote synergies, cross-fertilization and system perspective within the discipline. It also wants to explore the potential for multi and interdisciplinary research at the boundary of agricultural economics on the theme of the seminar.



The Winter School on "Survey Design and Experimental Methods in Applied and Agricultural Economics" will be held in Arizona State University, USA next March 16-20, 2020. The main objective of the winter school is to deliver an organic treatment of theoretical and practical knowledge so as to enable participants to design surveys and employ experimental methods. More specifically, this school serves as an introduction to state-of-the-art methods to address marketing research questions related to preferences, willingness to pay, and choice. Underlying psychographic determinants are also covered. For more information, please contact Carola Grebitus (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Finally, three special issue calls:

Dr. Anna Carbone of the Università della Tuscia will serve as a Special Issue Editor in the Italian Economic Journal. The issue will focus on "Recent trends in wine economics". The issue is focused on the Italian wine industry but also welcomes analyses on other countries and regional areas for international comparisons. These contributions are expected to shed light on present trends and to analyze the future tendencies in the global competition game. Deadline for Paper Submission: September 15, 2019. 

Dr. Daniela Martini and Prof. Davide Menozzi from the University of Parma will serve as guest editor of the Special Issue "Food Labeling: Analysis, Understanding, and Perception" for the Journal Nutrients. This Special Issue welcomes original research and reviews of literature focusing on: The analysis of the nutrient profile of products with different characteristics reported on the food labels (including but not limited to nutrition and health claims, organic, gluten-free); The nutrient profile underlying FOP nutrition labels and their graphical design in different countries; The consumers’ perception, knowledge and understanding of the information made on food; The impact of information on food labeling (e.g., front-of-pack information, serving size) on consumers’ willingness to pay and food choice; The attitudes, beliefs, perceptions, behavioral, and socioeconomic determinants regarding the use of food labels.

Dr. Ellen Van Loo, Dr. Vincenzina Caputo, and Dr. Claudia Bazzani will serve as Guest Editors to the next Special Issue "Food Quality, Price and Consumer Choices". Researchers are invited to submit articles focusing on quality credence quality labels such as environmental and ethical sustainability labels (e.g., organic, sustainable aquaculture and fisheries, animal welfare, fair trade, carbon footprint, local, food miles), symbols and origin labels (country of origin, Protected Designation of Origin, PDO and Protected Geographical Indication, PGI) and labels related to traditional production (Traditional Specialty Guaranteed, TSG), and nutrition- and health-related claims. Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
