Following highly successful Easter and Summer Schools in previous years, the Centre for International Macroeconomic Studies (CIMS) in the School of Economics, University of Surrey will hold a summer school from 7-12 September 2020. The deadline for application is 10 August 2020 although places will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis. The School will consist of two parallel four-day courses, six parallel one-day stand-alone courses on day five (Friday), and a one-day conference on day six (Saturday). Participants can register for all six days, or for only one of the stand-alone one-day courses.

Applications are now open for CIMS summer school 2020. The target participants will choose one of the two parallel four-day courses as follows:

  1. Foundations of DSGE Modelling which aimed at early researchers with some knowledge of Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) macroeconomic models and Matlab, but little or no experience of Dynare. The main goal of the Foundations course is to provide instructions on the construction and estimation of Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models and for their use for policy analysis.
  2. Advanced Topics in DSGE Modelling is aimed at more established researchers who are already fluent in Dynare and Matlab. This course will be useful to anyone who is engaged in practical macroeconomic modelling work, especially if they are interested in working with models that are either computationally expensive to simulate, highly nonlinear, or infinite-dimensional thanks to heterogeneous agents.

The foundations and advanced courses will run in parallel for four days from 7-10 September. Then on day 5, 11 September participants will be able to choose one of six one-day standalone courses covering:

  • Credit Market Imperfections and Poverty Traps
  • DSGE-VAR Models and Forecasting
  • Financial Frictions in DSGE Models
  • Financial Markets: Collateral, Repo, and Credit Default Swaps
  • Robust Qualitative Methods for Macro
  • Tractable Heterogeneous Agents Models (TANK/HANK)

Finally, on Saturday 12 September we will hold a one-day conference. All participants on the Courses are invited to submit a paper on some aspect of DSGE modelling to be presented in either full or during a Poster session.
