Special Issue "Recent developments in Spatial Econometrics, associated with the 10th Annual Conference of the Spatial Econometrics Association, Rome 13-15 June 2016"
A special issue of Econometrics (ISSN 2225-1146).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2018).
The Spatial Econometrics Association was created in 2006 by the seven co-founders Anselin, Arbia, Baltagi, Keleijan Robinson, Paelinck, and Prucha, and currently counts more than 100 members in the five continents. The past Annual Meetings were hosted in prestigious venues, such as Rome, Cambridge, New York, Barcelona, Chicago, Toulouse, Salvador de Bahia, Washington DC, Zürich, and Miami, attracting an average of about 80 papers a year. From 13–15 June, 2016, in order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Association, the conference will be held again in Rome. It is a tradition that, at each conference, the best papers are published in Special Issues of scientific journals. In the past few years the papers were published in journals such as Empirical Economics, Papers in Regional Science, Economic Modeling, Regional Science & Urban Economics, International Regional Science Review, Spatial Economic Analysis, Geographical Analysis, Review of Regional Studies, and Annals in Regional Science. The focus of the 2016 SEA World Conference in Rome will be on methodological themes, such as discrete choice spatial modeling, spatial panel data, spatial concentration, spatial models of duration, explanatory spatial data analysis, spatial Heteroskedastic models, Bayesian methods, big spatial data and spatial data mining, spatial microeconometric methods, and spatial and social network effects. It will also plan to attract empirical contributions related to topics such as Economic Growth, Knowledge Diffusion, Labor Market and Migration, Health, Criminology, Environmental Economics and Energy and House market. Papers containing original empirical applications (but not mere case studies that make use of existing methods) will also be considered for publication in the Special Issue. The purpose of this Special Issue is to contribute to the development of new methods in spatial econometrics and to their rapid diffusion in the scientific community.
There are currently no specialized journals on spatial econometrics so contributions are scattered throughout different journals. Methodological papers are usually published in journals like the Journal of Applied Econometrics, Journal of Econometrics, Econometric Theory, Econometrics Journal, Spatial Economic Analysis, Regional Science and Urban Economics, while more applied papers are hosted in journal like Papers in Regional Science, Geographical Analysis, Geographical Systems, and International Regional Science Review. On average, more than 20 papers a year are published on the subject. This Special Issue can intercept an important share of these publications associated to the Annual Meeting of the Spatial Econometrics Association.
