ESOBE stands for European Seminar on Bayesian Econometrics. This series of seminars was launched in 2010 with the first meeting in Rotterdam. In recent decades Bayesian econometrics has expanded enormously in areas such as optimal processing of information from different sources, efficient forecasting using sets of models, and measuring policy effectiveness and its associated risk.
The computational revolution in simulation techniques is a key ingredient in this expansion. Empirical applications of Bayesian econometrics deal with issues such as: risk management in international and financial markets, the education effect on income and individual entrepreneurship, measurement of policy effectiveness in the macro and monetary economy and individual decision making in marketing.
The ESOBE meetings have no particular theme but are intended as a discussion forum for new and recent research. Their aim is to bring together researchers and professionals interested in the application of Bayesian inference in economics in relatively small annual workshops that usually take two days.
We are pleased to announce that the 5th ESOBE annual conference will be held at ESSEC Business School, La Defense Campus (Room 203), Paris, France, on November 6 and 7, 2014.
Keynote speakers are:
• Nicolas Chopin, ENSAE
• Arnaud Doucet, Oxford University
• Sylvia Frühwirth-Schnatter, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien
• John Maheu, McMaster University
• Mark Steel, University of Warwick
• Jun Yu, Singapore Management University
We welcome submissions for contributed talks and poster presentations. Submissions should be sent to email@example.com. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference either as contributed talks or at the poster session.
The registration fee is 200 EUR. The registration fee is reduced to 100 EUR for PhD students and Posdoctoral researchers. This fee includes lunch on each day of the workshop and coffee breaks but do not include the hotel and the conference dinner. The fee for the facultative conference dinner is 90 EUR.
