6th ECB Workshop on Forecasting Techniques: Forecasting, Real-time and Survey Data
5 - 6 March 2010, Frankfurt am Main
The workshop will provide a forum for the presentation of recent theoretical and empirical contributions on the role of real-time and survey data in forecasting macroeconomic and financial variables. The recent period of heightened economic and financial uncertainty has demonstrated the importance of a timely assessment of the economic and financial outlook and the associated risks for policy makers.
Possible topics include the following:
1. Forecasting with real-time data and analysis of the revision process.
2. The use of micro and macro surveys in forecasting.
3. Timely forecasting and monetary policy.
4. Forecasting financial variables: asset prices, corporate and household loans.
5. Density forecasts.
However, the scope of the conference should be considered as wider than the themes listed above and submissions from all areas of forecasting are strongly encouraged.
