Institute on Computational Economics

The Economic Research Center at the University of Chicago in conjunction with the Argonne National Laboratory announces the 2005 Institute on Computational Economics (ICE05). The institute will be a five-day program held at Argonne National Laboratory from July 18 - 22, 2005.

The primary focus of ICE05 will be to train young scholars (advanced graduate students and junior faculty) in state-of-the-art numerical methods and computer technology, and their application to economic modeling and analysis.

Summer institute activities will include formal morning tutorials on a range of topics - numerical optimization, dynamic programming, solution methods for dynamic economic models, and statistical computing - followed by afternoon sessions that offer opportunities for less formal interactions via seminars and workshops featuring recent advances in quantitative economic policy research. Participating students will have an opportunity to present their work in a poster session.

Young scholars are encouraged to apply to the Institute. Generous fellowships are available to help qualified applicants who need funding assistance.
