The Portuguese Association for Tourism Research and Development (APIDT) and the Turismo do Centro de Portugal will jointly organize an Advanced Research Workshop in Tourism Economics (ARWTE) in Coimbra, Portugal, on 11 – 12 June 2012, at the premises of Museu Nacional Machado de Castro.
This event aims to bring together prominent economists and other researchers with a special interest on the tourism phenomenon to debate recent advances and state-of-the-art academic research on tourism economics and management. ARWTE 2012 will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners from all over the world to exchange scientific ideas and results and discuss new and emerging directions in research and practice in the field.
Access to the opening session of the workshop is by invitation only. The remaining parallel sessions are open to a limited number of submissions of original research papers (PhD working papers also welcome). All papers will be subject to a double blind peer review process. As in previous editions of our conference series on advances in tourism economics, selected academic contributions presented at the workshop will be proposed for publication either in a special issue of the JournalTourism Economics or at the conference book (edited by Springer-Verlag).
