30th International Input-Output Association Conference
12th Edition of the International School of I-O Analysis
1st - 5th July 2024, Santiago, Chile


12th Edition of the International School of I-O Analysis


The ISIOA since 2011 continues to grow as an event and is now a key feature of the annual IIOA Conference. This event provides a notable and unique training and educational opportunity in the field of Input Output for all attendees.

Background of the ISIOA

In 2010, in the 18th IIOA Conference in Sydney, Australia, a set of three training sessions, mainly orientated to young scholars were provided which were very well attended and exceptionally well received. These pioneering sessions were provided by Sanjiv Mahajan (over 50 people attended), Juan Carlos Parra and Thijs ten Raa.

The successful nature of this initiative turned out to be the springboard to officially setting-up the International School of Input-Output Analysis (ISIOA), launched a year later in the 2011 IIOA Conference in Alexandria, USA. The presentations in the 1st Edition were provided by Sanjiv Mahajan, Joy Murray and Susana Santos.

The logistics and early work was driven, planned and organised by José M. Rueda-Cantuche supported by Geoffrey Hewings, Erik Dietzenbacher and Albert E. Steenge as well as the trainers.

Since the introduction of the ISIOA, the IIOA has incorporated in each of its annual IIOA Conferences, an annual Edition of the ISIOA.

The 30th IIOA Conference in Santiago (Chile) will hold the 12th Edition of the ISIOA.

Aim of the ISIOA

The aim is to train younger scholars in the use of standard tools of I-O analysis in a broad sense and encouraging direct communication and/or collaboration between scholars and renowned researchers/ lecturers in the field.

In addition, the ISIOA plays a relevant role in the support of international workshops for groups of scholars and/or researchers coming from areas in the world with a low tradition in I-O related studies and with manifested interest in advancing the field in a broad sense.

Organisation of the ISIOA

At each annual IIOA Conference, the Directorate of the School prepares every year Modules of Teaching Sessions, which can vary in number with a maximum of six per year. The Modules deal with core topics of interest in I-O analysis and building on the feedback from previous Editions. Each Module is led by one or various lecturers and consists of four teaching sessions.

There are usually two events: the first, usually consists of an ISIOA Reception on the evening prior to the school day, aiming to introduce the lecturers and any logistics related to the Module; and the second, the school day itself, the teaching sessions.

The location and other details will be announced nearer the time. A flavour of the type of themes in the past include:

  • Environmentally Extended Input-Output Analysis;
  • Assessing and modelling circular economy strategies with Input-Output data;
  • Tourism and other Satellite Accounts;
  • Structural Decomposition Analysis;
  • MNE-affiliation into supply-and-use and input-output tables;
  • Global value chain analysis;
  • Econometric input-output modelling;
  • Dynamic Neo-Keynesian general equilibrium models;
  • Estimation of Multi-Regional Input-Output Tables; and
  • Construction of National Accounting Matrices.

Details for the 2024 ISIOA

The IIOA will organise at the 30th IIOA Conference, the 12th Edition of the International School of Input-Output Analysis (ISIOA). The 2024 ISIOA will be held in the  Andrés Bello University (Faculty of Economics) Santaigo, Chile.
