DSE2023 Summer school and conference theme: Deep Learning for Solving and Estimating Dynamic Models

DSE summer school will equip early and mid-stage PhD students with tools and hands-on computational instruction in deep learning applied to solving and estimating dynamic models, thereby closely integrating economic and econometric theory in empirical work.

The summer school will consist of 4 days of lectures and will run alongside with 2 days conference in dynamic structural econometrics. The conference brings together top junior and senior researchers from the field to discuss recent advances in theoretical and applied work.
