Griliches lectures (Aug 9-10): these lectures are part of AMES2016 and so any registered participants are welcome to attend.
The lecturer is Professor Ariel Pakes of Harvard University.
There will be one lecture in the afternoon of 9th, and two lectures on 10th. The lectures will present an overview of a topic in which the lecturers have done significant research.
They will typically be above PhD level, but not necessarily frontier research.
Here is an outline of the lectures.
