Narodowy Bank Polski Workshop:"Identification in Macroeconomics"


December 17-18, 2014, Warsaw, Poland

We are pleased to announce the workshop organized and hosted by the Narodowy Bank Polski: "Identification in Macroeconomics" on December 17-18, 2014 in Warsaw, Poland.

The problem of model identification is common to all sciences where we postulate existence of the underlying structure. Models used in macroeconomics are no exception. To identify the model means to be able to conduct unambiguous economic analysis on the basis of the model. Since unidentified models can not be used as "arguments' providers" in economic policy debates, the identification issue is very important.

As resolving the identification problem is a very first step in developing any model methodology one may be surprised that two of the most popular model methodologies used in applied macro i.e. Structural Vector AutoRegression (SVAR) and Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models, are not yet fully explored from the identification perspective. The aim of the workshop is to bring researchers from all over the world who are dissatisfied with this state of affairs. Since the topic of our workshop is ambitious we gained the best possible support from the well known experts in the field.

INVITED SPEAKERS:
- Fabio Canova (European University Institute and CEPR)
- Ivana Komunjer (University of California, San Diego)
- Daniel F. Waggoner (Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta)
- Tao Zha (Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Emory University and NBER)

TOPICS: We encourage submission of papers that deal more or less with theoretical or practical aspects of identification in macro models. If you identify your recent work within this rubric the workshop is a great opportunity to present such a work. More specifically, suitable topics include (but are not confined to):
1. Identification in DSGE, SVAR and possibly other models used in macro-modeling
2. Bayesian approach vs identification problem
3. Sign restrictions
4. Theory of identification

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Full papers should be sent to identification-conference@nbp.pl no later than September 28, 2014.

IMPORTANT DATES:
September 28, 2014 - submission deadline
October 20, 2014 - author notification
October 20 to November 3, 2014 - registration
December 17-18, 2014 - workshop

FURTHER INFORMATION: Should you have any questions, please contact: identification-conference@nbp.pl
