The 2022 meeting of the International Seminar on Macroeconomics (ISOM) is scheduled for June 20 and 21, hosted by the Bank of Greece in Greece (or via Zoom on-line if health conditions require it).
We invite submissions for consideration. We are interested in papers in “quantitative macroeconomics”, broadly defined, but with an explicit international dimension. "Quantitative" can mean a range of econometric techniques—including calibration. "Macroeconomics" includes related fields such as trade, labor economics, finance, and public finance, provided there is some international component. The research should be strongly motivated by real world questions and closely tied to real world facts and data. Information about past meetings of the NBER ISoM is available at https://scholar.harvard.edu/frankel/international-seminar-macroeconomics-isom. The ISOM tradition is that half the papers include a co-author based in North America and half include a co-author based on Europe.
Most papers at the conference are published in the Journal of International Economics in a special issue. The refereeing process is supervised by a Guest Editor, who will be Linda Tesar in 2022.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please upload a pdf file (either detailed abstract or draft paper) by September 30, 2021 to the NBER conference link:
If you know of a good paper by someone else, please feel free to forward this call to the author.
Only authors of accepted papers will be contacted. In the event that an in-person meeting is possible, travel expenses for one co-author will be covered. The NBER will reimburse the travel expenses of four paper-authors based in the US; the host will reimburse travel expenses for four based in Europe.
