Barcelona LeeX Experimental Economics Summer School in Macroeconomics in Universitat Pompeu Fabra. 
June 11-15, 2012:

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 third LeeX summer school devoted to experimental macroeconomics research.  This year's program will focus on laboratory studies that are relevant to current global financial crisis.

The intensive 5 days summer school will be held from June 11 to 15, 2012 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona. 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. The different links on the top of this page will give you access to details regarding the particulars of the summer school in experimental macroeconomics.

Summer school students are also invited to attend the 2 day LeeX International Conference on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics (LICTEM 2012) from June 18-19, 2012 that will also take place at UPF.


The deadline for applications is 1 April 2012.
