47th Annual International Seminar on Macroeconomics
Organized by Jordi Gali and Kenneth West
The 2024 meeting of the International Seminar on Macroeconomics (ISOM) is scheduled for June 4-5, hosted by the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland.
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. The ISOM tradition is that half the papers include a co-author based in North America and half include a co-author based in Europe.
Submissions may not be under consideration for publication at a journal, and by submitting in response to this call for papers the authors agree to allow the Journal of International Economics to consider their papers for publication in a special issue. The refereeing process is supervised by a Guest Editor, who will be Linda Tesar in 2024.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please upload a pdf file (either detailed abstract or draft paper) by October 15, 2023.
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. Travel expenses for one co-author will be covered. The NBER will reimburse the travel expenses for the four papers by authors based in the US; the host will reimburse travel expenses for four based in Europe.
