Given all the uncertainty related to the COVID-19, which has led to the closure of all academic travel in many universities at least until Sept 2020, with great regret we have decided to cancel the PET 2020 conference. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We thank all the people who submitted a paper to PET 2020; your interest in PET 2020 is much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you all at PET 2021.
With all best wishes.

The Association for Public Economic Theory (APET) is pleased to announce that the 2020 International Conference on Public Economic Theory (PET 2020) will be held in Montreal, Canada.
PET 2020, the 21st International Conference of APET, will be held July 9th-11th, with a welcome reception on the late afternoon/early evening of July 8th. It will be hosted by CIRANO and held in the Delta Hotel Montreal, which is located in the entertainment district of downtown Montreal.
There will be a special issue of the Journal of Public Economic Theory (JPET) on the environment linked to the conference. There will also be sessions sponsored by the Coalition Theory Network, a European network of researchers with interests primarily in coalition and network theory and applications.

PET conferences have become yearly events, with 250 (Hue, Vietnam) to 500 participants (Lisbon, Portugal), and typically about 325-350 participants. APET conferences are well-known and attract scholars from around the world.
