The symposium is an academic research conference in the area of macroeconomics. It is primarily aimed at promoting frontier contributions by junior macroeconomic researchers. A connection to the Nordic countries is an advantage but not a prerequisite. The symposium allows the junior researchers to present and discuss their research and to receive advice and constructive criticism from more senior macroeconomic scholars.
Ricardo Reis, Columbia University
Papers on all topics broadly associated with macroeconomics are welcome including “standard” macroeconomic analysis (real and monetary business cycles, labor markets, growth etc.) and issues such as public finance, human capital accumulation, firm dynamics, asset pricing, heterogeneous agents, income distribution, credit markets and political economy.
Long and short presentations by the junior researchers, some of which will have formal discussants, and a plenary presentation.
Who should apply
The conference is primarily created to promote and facilitate the work of junior researchers with an interest in or connection to the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) but the call is open to all junior applicants. The notion of “junior” refers to those about to graduate from a PhD program, assistant professors, and recently tenured senior professors.
