Organisers will provide connections between the JRC and Milan Airports (Malpensa and Linate) and the Milano Centrale Train Station on the days of arrival and departure.
We also organise two daily connections (morning and late afternoon) between the JRC and the pre-booked hotels. There will be no connection provided from other hotels to/from JRC.
The course is jointly organized by the JRC and CEPREMAP.
Organizers and animators:

This is a laptop only workshop. Each participant is required to come with his/her laptop with MATLAB R2014a or later and the latest stable Dynare version installed. We will provide WiFi access, but participants shouldn’t rely on it to access a MATLAB license server at their own institution. As an alternative to MATLAB, it is possible to use GNU Octave (free software, compatible with MATLAB syntax but slower).
