**A**s mentioned in the latest post on ABC, I am giving a short doctoral course on ABC methods and convergence at CREST next week. I have now made a preliminary collection of my slides (plus a few from Jean-Michel Marin’s), available on slideshare (as *ABC in Roma*, because I am also giving the course in Roma, next month, with an R lab on top of it!):

and I did manage to go over the book by Gouriéroux and Monfort on indirect inference over the weekend. I still need to beef up the slides before the course starts next Thursday! *(The core version of the slides is actually from the course I gave in Wharton more than a year ago.)*
