Announcement

The Zurich Center for Computational Financial Economics is proud to host the “DSE2020”, the annual Econometric Society summer school in Dynamic Structural Econometrics (June 15, 2020 - June 21, 2020) in conjunction with the 4th Conference on Structural Dynamic Models (June 18, 2020 – June 19, 2020). 

Econometric Society summer school in Dynamic Structural Econometrics (June 15, 2020 - June 21, 2020)

The primary focus of DSE summer schools is to provide students with tools and “hands on” computational instruction to carry out research in applied microeconometrics with strong emphasis on closely integrating economic and econometric theory in empirical work. We will discuss state of the art methods for solving, simulating and estimating dynamic programming models and use a variety of empirical applications to illustrate how these tools and methods are used in practice. The DSE summer school consists of 5 days of lectures held in conjunction with the 4th Conference on Structural Dynamic Models. Besides the core components, including single agent models, equilibrium models, and dynamic games, the course will also feature applications that follows the special theme of this year’s conference, Methodology and applications in environmental economics and climate change. Lecturers of the 2020 summer school include Fedor Iskhakov (Australian National University), Michael Keane (University of New South Wales), Felix Kübler (University of Zürich), Robert. A Miller (Carnegie Mellon University), John Rust (Georgetown University), Simon Scheidegger (University of Lausanne), Tony Smith (Yale University), Bertel Schjerning (University of Copenhagen).

Interested students are invited to submit their applications via the summer school website

Application deadline: March 15, 2020.
