The 11th International Workshop on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics
Online, June 21 – 23, 2021
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 keynote speakers for the 2021 workshop are:
- Dirk Krüger (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia) and
- Jasmina Arifovic (Simon Fraser University, British Columbia).
The 11th workshop is jointly organized by the Technische Universität Berlin and the BES Lab (Behavioral and Experimental Sciences Lab, formerly LEEX, at Universitat Pompeu Fabra). We invite researchers using behavioral, experimental and theoretical approaches addressing macroeconomic questions to submit a paper to this three-day conference.
The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2021. Submissions should include either a full paper or an extended abstract including the main results. Authors chosen to present papers will be notified by April 1st, 2021. The deadline for workshop registration is April 30, 2021. Submissions should include either a full paper or an extended abstract including the main results.
To submit a paper, please follow the 2-step application procedure described in "How to apply". Participation without presenting a paper is possible.
In addition to the workshop, the organizers invite young researchers and graduate students to the 13th BESLab Experimental Economics Summer School in Macroeconomics held online from June 20 to July 2, 2021. Summer school participants can also attend the workshop.
