Macroeconomic theories have traditionally been tested using non-experimental "field" data. However, modern, micro-founded macroeconomic models can also be tested in the laboratory, and researchers have begun to pursue such experimental tests. This June, graduate students specializing in macroeconomics or experimental economics, as well as junior faculty members and researchers of macroeconomic are invited to attend the first ever summer school devoted to experimental macroeconomics research.
The intensive 5-day summer school will be offered at Universitat Pompeu Fabra from June 18-22, 2007. Students will be taught experimental methods and exposed to a number of macroeconomic applications that have been tested experimentally. Students will be asked to participate in experiments and to develop their own experimental macroeconomic projects. Faculty will assist with and critique these projects.
Professors to summer school in experimental macroeconomics are John Duffy (University of Pittsburgh, USA), Frank Heinemann (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany) and Rosemarie Nagel (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain).
The deadline for applications is 15 April 2007. More information in http://leex.upf.edu/bleess07.htm
