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 simulation and estimation of DSGE models with Dynare. It will be also the occasion to introduce the new features in Dynare.

Participants will be given the opportunity to present a research paper/work. At the end of each day a one hour slot will be reserved for that purpose.

This Summer school is aimed at beginners as well as at more experienced researchers. PhD students are encouraged to participate.



Interested people should apply by sending an email to .

Application should be done no later than April 22, 2016. You will have to attach a CV and a recent research paper. Those willing to present a research paper/work should manifest their intention in the email.  We will confirm acceptance by April 25, 2016.

People working in organizations member of DSGE-net (Bank of Finland, Banque de France, Capital Group, European Central Bank, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Norges Bank, Sverige Riksbank, Swiss National Bank) should register via their network representative.

Workshop Organization

 This is a “laptop only” workshop. Each participant is required to come with his/her laptop computer with MATLAB version 7.5 (R2007b) or above 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; see http://www.dynare.org/download/octave for details on GNU Octave installation).
