Macroeconomic theories have traditionally been tested using non-experimental "field" data. However, modern, micro-founded macroeconomic models can also be tested in the laboratory, and researchers have begun to pursue such experimental tests. This June, graduate students specializing in macroeconomics or experimental economics, as well as junior faculty members and researchers of macroeconomic are invited to attend the third LeeX summer school devoted to experimental macroeconomics research.  This year's program will focus on laboratory studies that are relevant to current global financial crisis.
The intensive 5 days summer school will be held from June 8 to 14, 2015 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona. Students will be taught experimental methods and exposed to a number of macroeconomic applications that have been tested experimentally. Students will be asked to participate in experiments and to develop their own experimental macroeconomic projects. Faculty will assist with and critique these projects. The different links on the top of this page will give you access to details regarding the particulars of the summer school in experimental macroeconomics.
We invite summer school students to present their ongoing research during the summer school. Such presentations may take the form of presentations during the summer school or a poster session during the associated conference workshop, depending on the number of students seeking to present their work. Such presentations will be at the discretion of the summer school organizers. Students can submit research proposals as part of their summer school application, though this is not a requirement for participation in the summer school.  Indeed, one purpose of the summer school is to think of macroeconomic topics and models that can be implemented in the laboratory in a way that advances our knowledge of behavior.
Summer school students are also invited to attend the 2 day 6th LeeX International Workshop co-organized with Barcelona GSE Summer Forum on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics  from June 10-11, 2015 that will also take place at UPF.
The deadline for applications is Friday, April 10 2015.

Summer school organizers
  • John Duffy (University of Pittsburgh)
  • Frank Heinemann (Technische Universität Berlin)
  • Rosemarie Nagel (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)

Workshop: Matching in Practice

Dates: June 8-9, 2015

This workshop will bring together the growing community of researchers in Europe working on the various aspects of assignment and matching in education and related labor markets, with a view to actively foster the interactions between the different strands of approaches used by these researchers (theory, experiments, analysis of field data, policy/market design) and aggregate expertise about the actual functioning of these markets in Europe.

Keynote Speaker

Christopher Avery (Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University)

Workshop Organizer

Antonio Miralles (UAB and Barcelona GSE)

Scientific Committee

  • Dorothea Kübler (Berlin Social Science Center)​
  • Antonio Miralles (UAB and Barcelona GSE)
  • Joana Pais (Lisbon School of Economics and Management)

Speaker Schedule

Summer Forum workshop schedules for 2015 will be posted as they become available.
The workshop “Matching in Practice” is supported by the Severo Ochoa Research Program (SEV2011-0075).
