The Eleventh International Workshop on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics
The Technische Universität Berlin, Germany June 23-24, 2020
Macroeconomic theories have traditionally been tested using non‐experimental data from the field. However, modern, micro‐based macroeconomic models can also be tested in the laboratory, which affords better causal inference, and researchers have begun to pursue such experimental tests. The purpose of the International Workshop on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas and promote greater interaction between macroeconomic researchers, behavioral/experimental economists and policy makers, with the aim of advancing macroeconomics in a direction that allows it to account for more of the real behavior of economic agents and economies with the help of relevant experimental evidence.
The 11th workshop is jointly organized by the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany and the BES Lab (Behavioral and Experimental Sciences Lab, formerly LEEX, at Universitat Pompeu Fabra). We invite researchers using behavioral, experimental and theoretical approaches to addressing macroeconomic questions to submit a paper to this two-day conference. The keynote speakers for the 2020 workshop are Jasmina Arifovic (Simon Frazer University) and Dirk Krueger (University of Pennsylvania).There will also be a panel discussion on "the future role of laboratory experiments in macroeconomics."
The deadline for submissions is January 26, 2020. Submissions should include either a full paper or an extended abstract including the main results. Authors chosen to present papers will be notified by mid February, 2020. The deadline for workshop registration is March 30, 2020.
To submit a paper, please follow the 2-step application procedure described in "How to Apply" section.
Participation without submission is possible. If you wish to participate without presenting a paper, please contact the organizers using the contact form. In addition to the workshop, the organizers invite young researchers and graduate students to participate in the 13th BESLab Experimental Economics Summer School in Macroeconomics to be held at Technische Universität Berlin from June 21-27, 2020. Summer school participants can also attend the workshop.
