The International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) was created in the early 1990s and has become since then the most prominent global group of scholars with an interest in maritime transport, interpreted in the broadest sense to include ports, shipping and hinterland transport. IAME members come from a variety of research backgrounds, primarily economic and management, but also logistics, finance, engineering and social sciences.
The main event for the Association is its Annual Conference that brings together academics from every corner of the Planet every year to a different location. The IAME Annual Conference is an opportunity for the world scientific community to meet and discuss current research topics and to contribute to the development of maritime economics and management as an independent discipline.
It is with great pleasures that the organisers of IAME 2016 welcome the members of the IAME to Hamburg in August 2016. The conference, for the first time in Germany, will be organised by five internationally-renown institutions all with a strong interest in maritime transport and united by the desire to show the beauty of Hamburg to the world and contribute to the reputation of the metropolis on the Elbe as a leading centre for research in maritime economics and management.
Welcome to Hamburg!
