22nd International Input-Output Conference
& 4th Edition of the International School of I-O Analysis
14-18 July 2014, Lisbon, Portugal



The International Input-Output Association (IIOA) will organize at the 22nd International Input-Output (IO) Conference the Fourth Edition of the International School of Input-Output Analysis (ISIOA). Following the successful experience of the first, second and third Editions (Alexandria, 2011, Bratislava, 2012, and Kitakyushu, 2013), the Directorate of the School has prepared this year five Modules of teaching sessions due to their high demand. The modules will deal with 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. This year the Modules are the following:

Applied General Equilibrium: an Introduction

Environmental LCA

Material Flow Analysis

Disasters analysis

Managing Uncertainty in Input-Output Analysis

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 are very much encouraged 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 participants to apply the acquired knowledge in their daily work. If possible, the participants 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 July 13, 2014, aiming to introduce the lecturers and prepare any logistics related to the modules (e.g., software, laptops). On July 14, 2014, 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 number of participants is limited to 15 in each module and the rules for registration can be downloaded from the items 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.
