It provides a unique opportunity for macroeconomists from different research institutions and countries to discuss research in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships.

We try to operate the unavoidable rationing as fairly as possible, and in so doing, we assume that those who participate will at least attend the plenary talks and the talks of at least one programme area. To respond, and if you are CEPR programme fellow / affiliate or have a CEPR online profile, please visit the ESSIM 2019 Call for Papers webpage and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper or would be willing to act as a discussant.
