International School of Input-Output Analysis

The International Input-Output Association (IIOA) will organize at the 25th International Input-Output (IO) Conference the Seventh Edition of the International School of Input-Output Analysis (ISIOA). Following the previous successful Editions (Alexandria, 2011, Bratislava, 2012, Kitakyushu, 2013, Lisbon 2014, Mexico 2015, and Seoul 2016), the Directorate of the School has prepared this year four 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 following five teaching sessions.

1. Computable general equilibrium models: an introduction. Lecturer: Alejandro Cardenete

2. Analysing Trade in Value Added through Global Value Chains: Sectoral and macro indicators, methodologies and diagnostics. Lecturer: Hubert Escaith.

3. Entropy econometrics applied to input-output. Lecturer: Esteban Fernandez

4. Working with OECD’s ICIO and Indicators: A Hands-On Approach Using “R”. Lecturers: Joaquim Guilhoto and Norihiko Yamano.

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 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 June 18th, 2017, aiming to introduce the lecturers and prepare any logistics related to the module (e.g., software, laptops). On June 19th, 2017, the teaching sessions will run from 09:00 am to 18:00 pm. The location and other details will be announced in due time under the sections below.

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.
