Dynare Summer School 2019

Dynare Summer School 2019 will be hosted from June 3 to June 7, 2019 by École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France.

Goals of the Summer School

The school will provide an introduction to Dynare and to Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) modeling.

The courses will focus on the simulation and estimation of DSGE models with Dynare. The school will also be the occasion to introduce the next official major release of Dynare (version 4.6).

The Dynare Summer School is aimed at beginners as well as at more experienced researchers. PhD students are encouraged to participate. Time will be devoted to the (Dynare related) problems encountered by students in their research.

Workshop Organization

This is a laptop only workshop. Each participant is required to come with his/her laptop with MATLAB R2009b or later installed. We will provide WiFi access, but participants shouldn’t rely on it to access a MATLAB license server at their own institution. As an alternative to MATLAB, it is possible to use GNU Octave (free software, compatible with MATLAB syntax).
