Minnesota Workshop in Macroeconomic Theory

The Minnesota Workshop in Macroeconomic Theory is a workshop on dynamic macroeconomic theory sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the University of Minnesota and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. It is held on the campus of the University of Minnesota every summer in late July/early August.

The 2015 conference will last for four days, from Tuesday, August 4 through Friday, August 7. The schedule will be quite intense, with about 15 talks. There will also be ample time for informal discussion among the participants. We hope that all participants will stay the entire week.
