International AAWE Workshop “Economics of Organization and Integration in the Wine Sector”
June 25-26-27, 2017

Due to various factors, such as globalization, maturing markets, climate change, and continuous technological progress, firms in the wine sector are facing organizational challenges to ensure economic success. In order to respond to these challenges, wineries need to innovate and adapt their organizational and institutional structures, which are related to changes in viticulture and enological practices, production systems, management, strategy, marketing and distribution, and financing.  Our Workshop will highlight the specific conditions for and characteristics of Cooperatives as well as the effects of Vertical and Horizontal Integration/Concentration in the wine industry.

We are limited to 18 papers and need to be very selective. Full papers need to be ready by June 1. We envision publication of most papers in either the Journal of Wine Economics or the Journal of Wine Economics: Selected Proceedings.

March 8: Submission Deadline for extended outline (1200+ words)
March 10: Decision on accepted abstracts
June 1: Full Paper due

Submit your outline via email to:
