  • Papers covering relevant empirical, theoretical and methodological aspects – Abstracts of (at maximum) 300 words to be submitted by 10 December 2010.
  • Panel proposals that might refer to special sessions by invitation only, or to an open call that aims to bring together leading, emerging and new maritime and transport scholars – besides panel chairs, proposals need to contain an abstract of (at maximum) 300 words and be submitted by 10 December 2010.

The Organising Team:

ECONSHIP 2011 is organised by the Department of Shipping, Trade and Transport (STT) – University of the Aegean, a multidisciplinary team that includes internationally active maritime economists, transport researchers and a wide and multidisciplinary research spectrum.

Where:

ECONSHIP 2011 will be held on the island of Chios, in Greece. The island offers a unique traditional maritime environment in the heart of the Aegean Sea. This is one among the so-called ‘maritime islands’ due to the origin of one of the largest local pool of ship-owners and seamen, and Greece’s trademark for all too long.
