Short description: One-day Belgian Macroeconomics Workshop

The one-day “Belgian Macroeconomics Workshop” will take place at the University of Antwerp on Tuesday, September 11th, 2018. The workshop aims at creating a network of researchers working in closely related fields, and is primarily targeted at junior macroeconomists active in Belgium (i.e. junior Faculty members, postdocs or advanced PhD students). Of course, non-Belgian researchers are welcome to participate as well. Each paper selected for presentation will have a discussant. Senior macroeconomists from the most important Belgian universities will be present to provide feedback. There will also be a Poster session to give more opportunities to junior researchers to present their work.

Local organizer: Roland Winkler (UAntwerp)

Scientific committee: Peter Claeys (VUB), Selien De Schryder (UGent), Yuliya Rychalovska (UNamur), Romain Houssa (UNamur), Vivien Lewis (KUL), Luca Pensieroso (UCL), Roland Winkler (UAntwerp)
