Workshop The 10th Berlin IO Day

The Berlin IO Day is a one-day workshop sponsored by the Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP) and supported by the Berlin's leading academic institutions, including DIW Berlin, ESMT Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, and WZB which takes place twice a year, in the Fall and in the Spring. The aim is to create an international forum for high quality research in Industrial Organization in the heart of Berlin, one of Europe's most vibrant and intellectually lively cities.

    Workshop SET-Nav Modeling Workshop
    Two-stage decision making and modelling for energy markets

    In the SET-Nav project, we push the state-of-the-art of energy-economic-engineering models. Several work packages within the project are dedicated to improve, extend and customize models to better reflect relevant energy system aspects to address the research questions arising from the SET Plan. Models are linked and data is exchanged between them. However, today’s computational limitations effectively restrict the scope, scale and detail of all models. Future computational power and smarter solution algorithms will allow solving larger models that can provide a more holistic picture. In five different modelling workshops we investigate and discuss with the broader research community what should be prioritized when faced with the possibility to enlarge models’ scope, scale or detail given the research questions arising from the SET Plan challenges.

    The workshops are open to interested energy modellers, also beyond the project members. As such, our workshops serve as an open exchange platform and also serve the goal of the Horizon 2020 programme of transparency and openness in applied modelling.

    Two-stage decision modeling shall enable us to better describe complex situations and interactions in energy markets (e.g. between infrastructure decisions and operational decisions). The workshop shall be a combination of a seminar style lecture on the basics of multi-level modeling in the complementarity format and shorter conference style presentations of applications. It will focus on the equilibrium modeling framework and include modern solution techniques.

    Until September 1st, 2018, we are inviting contributions to the workshop. If you are interested in presenting your modeling approach and/or application of multi-level modeling, please contact Dr. Franziska Holz at DIW Berlin ().

    Participation is free of charge, but seats are limited and participants have to cover their own travel and accommodation costs. Registration for participation is possible until October 1st, 2018.

    Please register here

    We are looking forward to a fruitful exchange of ideas and experiences in the workshop. Welcome to Berlin!

    GSOEP CNEF Workshop 2018 at DIW Berlin

    For the first time, the DIW Berlin will host an international workshop on longitudinal data management and analysis. In contrast to our regular German SOEP-workshops, this course will be specifically devoted to comparative longitudinal and cross-country designs with the SOEP and its international sister household-panels. After an in-depth introduction to the SOEP and on general issues in longitudinal data handling, the second part of the workshop will be devoted to the US-American Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID). The SOEP and the PSID have many topics and structural features in common, while the respective countries differ in many institutional and compositional features. Therefore, these two datasets are particularly fruitful for empirical cross-country analyses. This potential is additionally stipulated by the provision of several key variables in a harmonized form in the so-called cross-national equivalent files (CNEF). The third part of the course therefore will be devoted to the CNEF-project. It will give an overview on the range of harmonized variables, contributing countries and on issues of data-access. We will also discuss examples of research questions that lead to cross-country designs and limitations of the CNEF data. Additionally, the course will deal with the key analytical cross-country designs.

    Schedule

    Day 1: Introduction to longitudinal data management and analysis on the basis of the Socio-economic Panel Study (SOEP). Lecture and hands-on sessions (Marco Giesselmann, DIW Berlin and Bielefeld University).

    Day 2: Introduction to the PSID. Lecture and hands-on sessions (Paula Fomby, University of Michigan)

    Day 3: Using the CNEF as basis for cross-country designs. Potentials, Problems and applications. Lecture (TBC) and hands-on sessions (Marco Giesselmann)   

    Registration & Requirements

    This workshop aims at doctoral students, post-docs and senior researchers, who currently carry out or are planning studies with the SOEP or other household panel data. We specifically want to encourage scholars with a strong interest in the impact of country-specific characteristics on subjective or objective individual conditions to participate in the workshop. Participants shall be familiar with stata and basic quantitative methods. Admission to the workshop will be granted on a first-come basis. The participation fee will be 60 Euros. Registration will be open from June 4th, 12 a.m. (CET).

    For questions on registration and organization,
    please contact Christine Kurka ().
