Agent-Based Economic Modelling, First Ancona-Milano Summer School on AB Economics, Ancona, 1-5 September 2015
Agent Based Macroeconomics (ABMs) is the application to macroeconomic modeling of computational techniques developed to analyze multi-agent systems, i.e. economies where heterogeneous households, firms, financial intermediaries interact with each other and the environment. The dynamic pattern of the resulting aggregate time series – for instance of GDP – is characterized by the endogenous emergence of deep disequilibria and sudden state transitions – i.e. dramatic recessions followed by slow and painful recoveries – which is what a macroeconomic model should do in times of global financial crisis and great recessions. This is the reason why ABMs have been gaining attention both within the academic debate and among international institutions and policymakers.
To who is the summer school addressed?
This Summer School is addressed to highly motivated graduate and Ph.D. students, as well as researchers working for public and private research centers, who want to integrate their curricula with the analytical and technical tools developed within this innovative field of study.

Alp-Pop 2016, Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland, January 26–29, 2016
Alp-Pop brings together scholars interested in population issues across several disciplines, including demography, economics, epidemiology, political science, sociology, and psychology. The conference emphasizes empirical rigor and innovation over a given topic or geographical area, and meets the challenges of interdisciplinary and international audiences.
We welcome submissions on all population issues (e.g., population and health, migration, families and the welfare state, population and economic development/institutions, well-being, etc.).
We particularly encourage submissions that take a life-course perspective and/or address social inequalities.
Submissions of original papers or extended abstracts are invited by August 15, 2015, and submitters will be notified of acceptance within a couple of weeks. Submissions and inquiries should be addressed via e-mail to: email@example.com
Alp-Pop scholars confer both formally and informally. A traditional conference program (paper and poster presentations) mixes with group activities in a world-class winter resort. The conference location, Hotel du Golf, is very close to the ski slopes of Villars and was chosen strategically for its proximity to both Geneva and Torino/Milano. If there is demand, we will also aim to organize childcare. Please indicate in your application if you intend to bring children along to the conference, as well as their ages.
Alp-Pop is organized by the Carlo F. Dondena Centre for Research on Social Dynamics and Public Policy at Bocconi University and the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research LIVES: Overcoming vulnerability: Life course perspectives.
