The European Central Bank is holding its tenth Workshop on Forecasting Techniques in Frankfurt am Main on 18 and 19 June 2018.

This biennial conference provides a forum for new theoretical and applied work on forecasting. Macroeconomists today have more – and richer – data at their disposal than ever before. Many of these datasets are not only very large, but also unstructured, not rectangular, or irregularly spaced. Fully tapping the embedded information for forecasters and policymakers requires new methods and tools. This conference will bring together experts from all fields to exchange new ideas on utilising large datasets for macroeconomic and financial forecasting.

Peter Bühlmann (ETH Zürich), Francis X. Diebold (University of Pennsylvania), Serena Ng (Columbia University) and Hal Varian (Google Inc.) have confirmed their participation as invited speakers.

Manuscripts should be submitted as a PDF to [email protected] by 28 February 2018.
