2021 DSE Summer School/Conference (PLANNED IN-PERSON)

Aug 16 - 22, 2021

Bonn, Germany


Household decision making and human capital in life-cycle models
University of Bonn
August 16, 2021 – August 22, 2021

Application deadline: March 31,2021

We are pleased to announce the next event in the sequence of Econometric Society summer schools in Dynamic Structural Econometrics. The primary focus of DSE summer schools is to provide advanced PhD students with tools and “hands on” computational instruction to carry out research in applied structural microeconometrics with a strong emphasis on closely integrating economic and econometric theory in empirical work. The school covers state of the art methods for solving, simulating, and estimating dynamic programming models. We use a variety of empirical applications to illustrate how these tools and methods are combined in a sound computational science workflow. Students will present their research and have ample chance to discuss it with colleagues and lecturers.

The 2021 CRC/TR 224 & Econometric Society DSE summer school consists of 5 days of lectures held in conjunction with the Dynamic Structural Econometrics Conference 2021 (August 19-20, 2021). The local partner is the CRC/TR 224 “Economic Perspectives on Societal Challenges” financed by the German Research Foundation.

The theme of the Dynamic Structural Econometrics Conference 2021 (August 19-20, 2021) is “Household decision making and human capital in life-cycle models”.

The conference brings together top junior and senior researchers from the field to discuss recent advances in theoretical and applied work.

Submission deadline: March 31, 2021

Lecturers of the summer school and invited conference speakers include:

• Orazio Attanasio (Yale University)
• Richard Blundell (University College London)
• Monica Costa Dias (Institute for Fiscal Studies)
• Mariacristina De Nardi (University of Minnesota)
• Philipp Eisenhauer (University of Bonn)
• Eric French (University of Cambridge)
• Hans-Martin von Gaudecker (University of Bonn)
• Fedor Iskhakov (Australian National University)
• Michael Keane (University of New South Wales)
• Karen Kopecky (Atlanta Fed)
• Hamish Low (University of Oxford)
• Robert A. Miller (Carnegie Mellon University)
• John Rust (Georgetown University)
• Bertel Schjerning (University of Copenhagen)

Interested students and presenters are invited to submit their applications via the website http://dseconf.org/

All applicants must be a member of the Econometric Society at the time of application. To join the Society, visit  http://www.econometricsociety.org.

We hope to see you in Bonn in August 2021! However, due to the current uncertainty of the CoVID-19 situation and potential travel restrictions, we might need to change the setting to a hybrid event or even hold it in an entirely virtual fashion. We will make this decision closer to the date of the event.
