13th Nordic Summer Symposium in Macroeconomics
Smögen, Sweden, August 7-10, 2019
The symposium is an academic research conference in the area of macroeconomics. It is primarily aimed at
promoting frontier contributions by junior macroeconomic researchers. A connection to the Nordic countries
is an advantage but not a prerequisite. The symposium allows the junior researchers to present and discuss
their research and to receive advice and constructive criticism from more senior macroeconomic scholars.

Papers on all topics broadly associated with macroeconomics are welcome including "standard" macroeconomic
analysis (real and monetary business cycles, labor markets, growth etc.) and issues such as public finance,
human capital accumulation, firm dynamics, asset pricing, heterogeneous agents, income distribution, credit
markets and political economy.
WHO SHOULD APPLY
The conference is primarily created to promote and facilitate the work of junior researchers. Researchers with
an interest in or connection to the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) are
particularly appreciated but the call is open to all junior applicants. Junior refers to those about to graduate from
a PhD program, assistant professors, and recently tenured senior professors.
