21st Dynamic Econometrics Conference
Conference Announcement and Call for Papers
This is the first announcement and call for papers for the 21st Dynamic Econometrics Conference, which will be held at The George Washington University on Thursday and Friday, March 14-15, 2019. In collaboration with the Research Program in Forecasting Department of Economics at The George Washington University Washington, DC, USA.
The Dynamic Econometrics Conference provides a forum for the presentation and exchange of research results and practical experience within the fields of computational and financial econometrics, empirical economics, time-series and cross-section econometrics, and applied mathematics. The conference program will feature contributed paper sessions, poster sessions, PhD SPEED presentations, and the invited Ana Timberlake memorial lecture. The conference will also feature a panel discussion with developers of the OxMetrics econometrics software, including Jurgen A. Doornik, David F. Hendry, Siem Jan Koopman, and Sébastien Laurent. The conference (previously named the OxMetrics User Conference) is open to all those interested, and not just to OxMetrics users.
