The Center for Quantitative Economic Research (CQER) of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta invites the submission of papers for the workshop and midyear meeting of the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) "Methods and Applications for DSGE Models." The workshop, which takes place October 12–13, 2012, has a broad focus on empirical macroeconomics, with special but not exclusive attention given to research based on dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. This research includes methodological contributions, advances in DSGE modeling such as the incorporation of learning mechanisms or asset pricing features and specific applications.
Approximately 20 to 30 participants will attend the workshop, which features six presentations on Friday, October 12, and three on Saturday, October 13. Each paper presented will be followed by a general discussion.
Papers or extended abstracts were to have been submitted to the NBER website by August 6, 2012. If your paper was selected, you must submit a complete draft to the discussant by Monday, September 24. We regret we can contact only those whose papers were selected for inclusion in the program. In addition, this call for papers is widely distributed and the meeting room is limited in size, so unfortunately we cannot invite everyone who receives it to the meeting.
