7 - 7 June 2017 / Florence, Italy (EUI Premises) / Florence School of Banking and Finance (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute)

Deadline for registration: 17 May 2017

This one-day training course will be held by Fabio Canova (BI), Wouter den Haan (LSE) and Junior Maih (Norges Bank).

The course will present the most recent methods to study models with occasionally binding constraints and will be divided in three parts:
1. The first part of the course will deal with piecewise linear approxiations methods, presenting estimations of models solved with these techniques.
2. The second module will deal with Markov Switching specifications, solution, simulation and applications.
3. The third part of the course will present projection methods. These methods can easily deal with nonlinearities; in addition, dealing with occasionally binding constraints is trivial for projection algorithms.

It is expected that course participants have a good prior knowledge of dynamic macroeconomic models, including basic knowledge of perturbation techniques.

4 - 8 September 2017 / Guildford, United Kingdom / University of Surrey

The Centre for International Macroeconomic Studies (CIMS) in the School of Economics, University of Surrey will hold a five-day Summer School from 4th-8th September, 2017.

The School will consist of two parallel four-day courses (Foundations of DSGE modelling; Advanced DSGE modelling) and four parallel one-day stand-alone courses on day five (Financial Frictions in DSGE Models; DSGE-VAR Models and Forecasting; Occasionally Binding Constraints and Nonlinear Estimation; Emerging Open Economies). Participants can register for all five days, or for only one of the stand-alone one-day courses.
