Monday, 09:00am at DIW Berlin
Description:

One-week short course (DIW Berlin Master Class) on "Advanced methods of operations research - theory and application to energy markets".

The course takes place July 3 - 7 at DIW Berlin. Instructors are Jeremy Eckhause (RAND) and Sauleh Siddiqui (Johns Hopkins). Upon approval by the student's institution, 6 ECTS can be earned when taking a written exam (Monday, 10 July) and handing in a seminar paper. Other arrangements and only taking parts of the course are possible.

As the official announcement from DIW may be published at some time in the future, I would be happy if you could share the information among BDPEMS students. As I do not know the BDPEMS credits policy, I cannot judge whether students could be eligible for credits - I can change the details in the flyer accordingly.

The course targets Berlin-based PhD students, post-doctoral researchers (and graduate students) interested in applied OR and IO, energy market analysis, and numerical methods for management science. Thus, irrespective of credtis, participation is not limited to DIW students.
This course provides participants with selected state-of-the-art methods in OR for both academic and applied work. It covers integer programming, real options, complementarity problems, and multi-stage games. The instructors have long-standing experience in both applied as well as theoretical research and teaching at various institutions.

The course comprises both theory lectures and hands-on programming sessions in GAMS. Applications mainly focus on energy markets; methods are, however, go beyond the field and can be applied to various investment and planning problems (under uncertainty), or computational game theory. Some previous knowledge in numerical optimization techniques and the software GAMS is desirable but no prerequisite. If there is demand, an introduction to GAMS will be given.

Description:

Dear students,

As the new semester is quickly approaching, we would like to encourage you to sign up for one of the Brown Bag slots during the winter term. You are welcome to present and discuss research ideas or full-fletched projects. As you know, the BDPEMS/RTG Brown Bag is integrated into the Brown Bag Seminar Macroeconomics at HU.

We will try to distribute the available slots fairly between the two groups. As always, the seminar takes place on wednesday from 12.30 to 2pm in room 23, SPA1. There will be snacks available. The Brown Bag seminar offers you the possibility to present your work to an interested and open-minded audience and to receive useful feedback that will foster your research. It enhances the research exchange within the BDPEMS/RTG program.

If you would like to make use of this opportunity, please contact Julian (emmlerjx@hu-berlin.de) or me (Kalle.Kappner@bdpems.de) and indicate your preferred date of presentation. We encourage you to also consider the early dates. As of now, we are still urgently searching for a third co-organizer. If you would like to help us with the organization of the Brown Bag Seminar, please contact us.

Best regards, Kalle Kappner and Julian Emmler

Description:

The evolution from analogue to digital technologies continues to dominate the attention of decision makers today. Many tools in industrial production processes have been automated or replaced by highly complex mechanisms with pre-programmed decision-making. The change to digital modes of operations increasingly determines the lives of individuals and does so in increasingly unexpected ways.

Please note: We have received financial support for this Q Kolleg and will admit 3 master students for a research/learning exchange trip to NUS, Singapore.

The students get insight into the area of modern internet based Computational Statistics Methods. Practically relevant knowledge on methods, data forms and Gestalt will be trained. The use of GITHUB and network techniques will be taught and transferred into www.quantlet.de. Direct computer oriented knowledge and possibilities of empirical research will be shown. The course is televised to NUS, Singapore. Together with the Dept STAT of NUS we present extremely practical examples from finance, neuro economics and network analysis.

at Harz mountains
Description:

This seminar is concerned with varying topics and thus covers different fields from the research at Christian D. Schade's Chair for Entrepreneurial and Behavioral Decision Making; it is intended for Master and PhD students. Students write seminar papers on selected topics. Often the seminar paper involves the design and implementation of a small experiment and/or the analysis of statistical data. See also announcement on the Chair's website.
The course is held in the form of a 4-day seminar trip to the Harz mountains (January 31 - February 3, 2019) where the participants present their seminar papers on selected topics in front of the entire group. This ensures a more focused working atmosphere, leading to best possible results. (Costs for accommodation and travel will not to be covered.)

Number of participants:
20 Master Students (max.), 3-5 PhD students (on top). Note that the theoretical maximum of 25 students will rarely be reached.

Registration:
The registration document can be downloaded from the website and must be handed in personally or via email to entre@wiwi.hu-berlin.de by October 15, 2018. If more than 20 applications from master students are received, participants will be selected randomly by a lottery draw. If more than five PhD students apply, a separate random draw will be carried out for them.

Topics in the winter term 2018/19 will focus on "Modelling Context and Social Projection in Behavioral Decision Making and Games." On the one hand, the topics will deal with the role of context in decision making and how seemingly irrelevant contextual aspects may change people’s choice behavior and preferences despite other predictions by rational choice theory. The psychological phenomenon of social projection, on the other hand, depicts a person’s tendency to assume that counterparts are driven by the same motives as oneself, which may influence individual choices – both in strategic and nonstrategic scenarios.

A first informational meeting will take place on October, 23, 2018 (2 pm to 4 pm; Spandauer Straße 1 Room 112). For the master students, prepared topics will be distributed among them, taking into account their preferences. However, PhD students can choose their topics themselves freely within the above-mentioned field and will be advised by Professor Schade.

Description:

Abstract: This talk on May 4, 2012 gives an overview about the use of original surveys conducted among German politicians for the study of fiscal policy. The first study (Heinemann and Janeba, German Economic Review, 2011) uses a survey of members of the German Bundestag to understand the politicians’ subjective beliefs about the role of taxes for business  location decisions. It is shown that ideology is a major determinant which appears to be in conflict with traditional economic theory, as the question relates to non-ideological issues. In the second study (Janeba and Osterloh, ZEW Discussion Paper, 2012) a survey of mayors in Baden-Württemberg is used to determine empirically the spatial pattern of competition among jurisdictions for business investment through the use of the local business tax rate (Gewerbesteuer). The empirical pattern is then used to develop a new theoretical model of tax competition which in important aspects is consistent with empirical evidence on tax trends in Baden-Württemberg. Finally, the talk provides first descriptive results of a survey of members of all state parliaments in Germany to assess the likelihood and consequences of (not) implementing a debt break rule (Schuldenbremse) at the state level.
