10th Dynare Conference


The 10th Dynare Conference, hosted by Banque de France in Paris, will take place September 18-19, 2014. The conference features the work of leading scholars in dynamic macroeconomic modeling. The different papers deal with various aspects of DSGE modeling and computational methods necessary to use them. Papers can use other software tools than Dynare. Theoretical contributions are also encouraged

Fabrice Collard (University of Bern) and Alejandro Justiniano (Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago) are plenary speakers.

The conference is sponsored by Banque de France, the Dynare project at CEPREMAP and DSGE-net.
