The European Central Bank will hold its 11th Conference on Forecasting Techniques as an online event on 15 and 16 June 2021. This biennial conference provides a forum for new theoretical and applied work on forecasting. The submission deadline for regular contributions and the PhD competition is 23, March.
The main topic of the conference is macro-economic and financial forecasting in abnormal times. Contributions on robust forecasting in the presence of structural breaks, nonlinearities and large risks, and the modelling and forecasting of tail events are particularly encouraged, together with contributions on machine learning and big data techniques. The scope of the conference is yet not limited to these topics and submissions from all areas of forecasting are welcome.
Joshua Chan (Purdue University) and Christopher Sims (Princeton University) have confirmed their participation as keynote speakers. Lucrezia Reichlin (London Business School) will moderate a panel discussion with Joshua Chan, Christopher Sims and Matt Taddy (Amazon) on the main conference topic.
Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23 March. Please indicate in your submission whether you are willing to discuss a paper. The authors of accepted papers will be notified by 15 April 2021. Notifications will be sent to the authors of accepted papers only. The conference also features a paper competition for PhD students.
