The International Input-Output Association (IIOA) will organize at the 20th International Input-Output (IO) Conference the Second Edition of the International School of Input-Output Analysis (ISIOA). Following the successful experience of the first Edition (Alexandria, 2011), the Directorate of the School has prepared for this year another three Modules of teaching sessions on core topics of interest in input-output analysis, mostly taking into account the feedback of past editions.
Each Module is led by one or various lecturers and 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 welcoming and get together on the 24th of June 2012, aiming to introduce the lecturers and prepare any logistics related to the module (e.g., software, laptops). On the 25th of June 2012, the teaching sessions will run from 09:00 am to 17:30 pm. The location and other details will be announced in due time under the sections below. The second edition of the ISIOA will be closed by Erik Dietzenbacher who will give a lecture on "Scientific Writing" to all students.
The number of participants is limited to 15 and the rules for registration can be downloaded from below. Participants will receive a Module Certificate of Studies in Input-Output Analysis once they have fulfilled the corresponding criteria, which can also be found below.
