2023 Africa Training Workshop in Computational Macroeconomics
2023 Africa Training Workshop in Computational Macroeconomics (AFTW2-2023)
December 13-15, 2023
We are pleased to announce the Africa Training Workshop in Computational Macroeconomics, which will be held on December 13-15, 2023 (fully remote).
The workshop, titled "Solving dynamic equilibrium models", will present methods used to solve macroeconomic models. The lectures will focus on dynamic programming, the value function iteration and perturbation methods, with applications to a variety of topics, from the consumption-saving choice to the open-economy dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model. The workshop will cover also essential numerical tools (such as optimization and root-finding algorithms) and coding best practices. The lectures will feature many examples of codes in Julia (free computational software).
This is a graduate-level course for PhD students, scholars, and professionals (with at least a master’s degree).
