19th International Workshop « Spatial Econometrics and Statistics » - May 2021 Nantes, France

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the 19th International Workshop on Spatial Econometrics and Statistics that was supposed to take place on May 28-29th in Nantes is rescheduled to May 2021.

As a consequence, the whole submission process will be restarted. A new call for papers will be issued in the Winter of 2020.


The aim of this international workshop is to promote and develop scientific exchanges between economists, econometricians, statisticians, geographers and mathematicians on spatial econometrics and statistics and their applications in various fields of research. This workshop also aims to discuss the state-of-the-art and future challenges as well as opportunities in the fields of spatial econometrics and statistics and encourage exchanges between senior and junior researchers involved in spatial statistics and econometrics.

All submissions in the fields of spatial statistics, spatial data science and spatial econometrics are welcome (methodology, applications etc.). Theoretical and applied studies with methodological advances in spatial econometrics and statistics can be submitted. We especially encourage submission by junior researchers. For this 19th edition, we also encourage submissions on issues related to social networks and their application in economics or their links with spatial econometrics and statistics.
