We are pleased to announce an annual sequence of Econometric Society summer schools in Dynamic  Structural  Econometrics.  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 2019 Econometric Society DSE summer school consists of 5 days of lectures held in conjunction with the 3rd Conference on Structural Dynamic Models (July 10- 11, 2019). Besides the core components, including single agent models, equilibrium models, and dynamic games, the course will also feature applications that follow the special theme of this year’s conference, "Industrial  organization, marketing and business analytics."  Invited speakers at the conference include Victor Aguirregabiria, Paul Ellickson, Michael Keane, Robert Miller, Harikesh Nair, Aviv Nevo, and Ariel Pakes.

The DSE summer school and conference takes place in conjunction with the six week Open Source Economics Laboratory Boot Camp at the University of Chicago.

Interested students are invited to submit their applications via the summer school website before April 30, 2019. 

All applicants must be a member of the Econometric Society at the time of application. To join the Society, go to the home page of the Econometric Society,

We hope to see you in Chicago in July 2019.
