Welcome to the Chicago-Argonne Institute on Computational Economics!

The Institute on Computational Economics is a five day summer program held at Argonne National Laboratory in Argonne, Illinois. ICE serves as a focal point for promoting and disseminating cutting-edge methods in computational science useful in the solution and empirical estimation of economic models. Currently there is no clearing house for disseminating developments in computational science to economists, and the interaction between economics and computational science is poorly developed. ICE will serve to stimulate the exchange of knowledge and the development of new computational tools to solve economic policy questions. The goal is to create an institute that will build a community of scholars around the world that will interact on an ongoing basis. Such interactions are at the heart of successful scientific research.

We had our first Institute in 2005, and we are continuing this effort with ICE 2006 which will be held on July 17-21, 2006.
