The 9th annual DYNARE Conference (http://www.dynare.org) will be held in
Shanghai, at the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE), on
October 29-30, 2013. The conference is organized by the Shanghai
University of Finance and Economics (SUFE) together with Bank of France,
DSGE-net, and the Dynare project at CEPREMAP.
The DYNARE conference will feature the work of leading scholars in
dynamic macroeconomic modeling and provide an excellent opportunity to
present your own research results.
Chris Sims (Princeton University) and Oreste Tristani (European Central
Bank) will be plenary speakers.
Submissions of papers dealing with different aspects of DSGE modeling
and computational methods are all welcome. Papers using other software
tools than DYNARE or theoretical contributions are also encouraged.
Paper submission procedure: please, fill out the paper submission form
available at http://www.dynare.org/ocs/index.php/conference/conf2013 and
upload a complete manuscript or a detailed abstract in PDF format.
Deadline for submissions is May 31, 2013. Authors of accepted papers
will be informed by June 30, 2013.
We encourage that authors also submit their papers to a special issue of
Frontiers of Economics in China (FEC)? All submissions are subject to
peer review. FEC (http://iar.shufe.edu.cn/structure/iar/fec/) is one
of the few English language economics journals in China and is under
the umbrella of Frontiers in China, the largest series of Chinese
academic journals. SUFE is expecting to include 8-10 papers in the
special issue to be published in 2014.
Accepted papers will be automatically considered for publication in the
Dynare Working Papers series (http://www.dynare.org/wp) conditional on
the agreement of the submitter. Note that publication in the Dynare WP
does not prohibit submission to another working paper series.

Juillard (Bank of France), and Tao Zha (Federal Reserve Bank of

Dear Dynare friends,
We are pleased to announce the release of Dynare 4.3.3.
This is a bugfix release.
The Windows packages are already available for download at:
The Mac and GNU/Linux packages (for Debian and Ubuntu) should follow soon.
All users are encouraged to upgrade.
The new release is compatible with MATLAB versions ranging from 7.0 (R14) to
8.1 (R2013a) and with GNU Octave versions ranging from 3.2 to 3.6.
Here is a list of the problems identified in version 4.3.2 and that have been
fixed in version 4.3.3:
- Estimation with measurement errors was wrong if a correlation between two
measurement errors was calibrated
- Option `use_dll' was broken under Windows
- Degenerate case of purely static models (no leads/no lags) were not
- Deterministic simulations over a single period were not correctly done
- The sensitivity call `dynare_sensitivity(identification=1,morris=2)' was
buggy when there are no shocks estimated
- Calls to `shock_decomposition' after using `selected_variables_only' option
- Sometimes, only the last open graph was saved, leading to missing and
duplicate EPS/PDF graphs
- Forecasting after maximum likelihood estimation when not forecasting at
least one observed variables (`var_obs') was leading to crashes
- Some functionalities were crashing with MATLAB 8.1/R2013a (bytecode,
- Sometimes only the first order autocorrelation of `moments_varendo' was
saved instead of all up to the value of `ar' option
