The Bank of Italy is hosting the annual edition of the "Central Bank Macroeconomic Modeling Workshop". The workshop is the 17th of a series of workshops that give policy-makers and academics the opportunity to discuss critical issues related to the class of models currently used for policy analysis. This year edition is entitled "New perspectives on models for policy analysis" and focuses on the need for enriching structural models to account in particular for the (possibly nonlinear) interaction between the financial sector and the real economy, in closed and open economies, under low or high uncertainty and systemic risk.
The workshop will be held at Bank of Italy headquarters in Rome, on 20-21 October 2014.
Authors affiliated with central banks or other policy Institutions can submit papers in electronic (pdf) format to CBMMW2014@bancaditalia.it before July 14, 2014.
