The International Input-Output Association (IIOA) will organize at the 19th International Input-Output (IO) Conference three Modules of teaching sessions on core topics of interest in input-output analysis. Participants will receive a Module Certificate once they have fulfilled all criteria, which are still to be defined by the IIOA.

Each Module is led by one lecturer. Each Module consists of four teaching sessions. As examples of Modules, one may think of topics such as: Environmentally Extended Input-Output Analysis; Construction of NAMEA Accounts; Construction of Supply-Use and Input-Output Tables; Tourism Satellite Accounts; Structural Decomposition Analysis; Measuring Productivity Growth; Estimation of Multi-regional Input-Output Tables; Multi-regional Input-Output Analysis; and Construction of Social Accounting Matrices.

If available, the use of the laptops in lecture rooms (preferably with wireless internet connection) or the use of computer rooms to follow the lectures will be possible. Participants should be encouraged however to bring their own laptop. The sessions will be preferably hands-on, with many examples and applications so that the attendants become familiar with the (software) tools and the outputs they produce. The Modules aim at serving the attendants to apply the acquired knowledge in their daily work. If possible, the attendants will receive the documentation of the Modules as prepared by the lecturers and the corresponding outline a few days before the Module takes place.

The first event will consist of a one common introductory session (1.5 hour) on the 11th of June 2011, aiming to introduce the lecturers; prepare anything related to the module (e.g., software, laptops); and have a short outline of the Modules by the lecturers. On the 12th of June 2011, the teaching sessions will run from 09:30 am to 18:00 pm. The location will be confirmed later on.

The number of participants is limited to 15 and the rules for registration will be announced by the end of February 2011.
