The 2016 Zurich Initiative on Computational Economics
The Zurich Center for Computational Financial Economics (ZCCFE) will hold the 2016 Zurich Initiative on Computational Economics (ZICE16) at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, from January 27 to February 4, 2016. ZICE16 will be a program for young scholars interested in applying computational methods to economics.
ZICE16 marks the fifth time that this computational workshop is held at the University of Zurich. ZICE16 has a similar objective and format as ZICE’s 2011 – 2015 and the past ICE (at the University of Chicago) workshops. The aim of ZICE16 is to create a collaborative community of computational scientists and economists by training young scholars (advanced graduate students) in state-of-the-art numerical methods and computer technology, and their application to economic modeling and analysis. The activities will begin with formal lectures on a range of topics – numerical optimization, dynamic programming, solution methods for dynamic economic models, and computationally intensive methods in statistics – followed by tutorials that familiarize participants with computer software applied to economic models. In addition, participants will work on assignments to facilitate the learning of numerical methods and will be able to speak with the lecturers about their own work during “office hours”.
The presenters will provide the participants with computer implementations of their solution methods for economic models. Most of these computer programs will be in the Matlab language. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that participants bring a laptop with a working version of Matlab to ZICE16 and have a solid knowledge of programming in Matlab.
Graduate students from all universities are encouraged to apply to ZICE16. All applications will be considered equally; neither the citizenship of an applicant nor his or her current place of study will be a consideration in acceptance decisions. However, note that the workshop is for current PhD students only, ideally students in the 3rd year of their doctoral studies.
There will be no fee for participating in ZICE16. We will provide housing for participants at no charge (double rooms at Zurich Youth Hostel). Participants are responsible for transportation costs and for their meals. ZICE16 is funded by the University of Zurich.
For more information on topics, speakers, life in Zurich, and application procedures, see www.zccfe.uzh.ch. Application forms will be available at this website starting mid-August, 2015.
NOTE THAT THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 25, 2015.
E-mail inquiries should be directed to Ruth Häfliger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third Winter School on the Analytics and Policy Design of Migration
Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in Qatar (GU-Q) is pleased to announce that the Third Winter School on the Analytics and Policy Design of Migration will be held in Doha, Qatar, on January 5-9, 2016.
The School will be led by Oded Stark, Distinguished Research Scholar at Georgetown University, Professor at the Universities of Bonn, Tuebingen, Warsaw, and the Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca.
The main purpose of the School is to induce the participants to think rigorously, creatively, and in non-conventional ways on various approaches to the modeling of migration choices and consequences, and to demonstrate to the participants how such a thinking process could enrich the spectrum of informed migration policies. Participants will be exposed to the art of economic modeling in general, and to the workings of applied microeconomic theory in particular. Following the School, the participants are expected to be more at ease with deciphering theoretical research on migration, and at engaging in such research themselves.
School participants should be holders of Ph.D. in Economics earned during 2011-2015, or Economics Ph.D. students in advanced stages of their dissertation work.
The cost of participation in the School, including return air travel via a direct route, accommodation, and meals, will be covered by the School. The School will be held in the campus of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in Doha. Participants will be expected to arrive on Monday, January 4, 2016, and to depart on Sunday, January 10, 2016.
Applicants are asked to submit, in a pdf format, their C.V. along with a sample article or a chapter in their Ph.D. dissertation to Dr. Ewa Kepinska, Coordinator of the Winter School, e-mail: SFSQWinterSchool@georgetown.edu. The application deadline is October 15, 2015. Responses to the applications will be provided by October 31, 2015.

Call for Research Proposals or Papers
The Poverty Global Practice for the Latin America and Caribbean Region (LAC) in the World Bank will be leading the Regional Study “Aggregated Shocks, Poverty and Ex-ante Risk Management in Latin America and the Caribbean”, which is part of the Regional Study Series of the Office of the Chief Economist for the LAC Region.
The Regional Study will be comprised of original theoretical and/or empirical work relating to two broad lines of research applied to countries in LAC: 1) Welfare Impacts of Aggregated Shocks – aggregated shocks (macro shocks, natural disasters, civil conflicts, crime, health epidemics, etc.) and their causal effects (short- and long-term) on consumption, poverty, income generating capacity and other aspects of human welfare such as accumulation of assets including education, health and nutrition and 2) The Effectiveness of Ex-ante Risk Management – exploring whether the resilience of household’s welfare is influenced (in a causal sense) by different forms of ex-ante risk management strategies ranging from income diversification (farming and off-farm labor, crop diversification, migration, etc.), access to financial and insurance markets (savings and credit, weather-based insurance, health insurance), inter-household risk sharing networks (foreign remittances, private transfers) to participation in social protection programs.
Authors who would like their papers to be considered for publication in the Regional Study are invited to submit a one-page proposal or preliminary/full drafts of the papers by April 15th , 2015 via e-mail at email@example.com. Please use the subject “Risk Management Regional Study” for the electronic submission. Papers related to the second line of research (The Effectiveness of Ex-ante Risk Management) are especially encouraged to be submitted.
A technical committee will manage the selection of the papers to be part of the regional study. The papers selected will be peer reviewed by external reviewers to ensure that the final version meet the expected technical rigor. While the regional study will draw extensively from the evidence and findings documented by the selected papers, the authors will retain the intellectual property rights of their papers and are allowed to submit their papers for publication in any academic journal. Authors of papers/proposals selected will be invited to participate in a workshop in Washington D.C. (tentatively scheduled for August, 2015) where they will present the findings of their work and receive feedback from the other authors and the technical committee. Some funds will be available to support the completion of ongoing research projects depending on their relevance to the regional study and contribution to the literature.
All manuscripts submitted should be written in American English and in PDF format. Preliminary or completed drafts should include an abstract of maximum 300 words. Final versions of the papers to be included in the Regional Study are expected by January, 2016.
