2nd Workshop on Financial Econometrics and Empirical Modeling of Financial Markets

The unprecedented changes in financial markets present a major task for econometric modeling. The increasing complexity of financial models requires equally sophisticated empirical methods. This workshop attempts to bring together researchers from different areas to address these challenges. We invite researchers to present their original work on related topics including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:


  • Forecasting under model and parameter uncertainty
  • Modeling exchange rates, monetary policy and stock markets
  • Contagion and spillovers
  • Bayesian modeling of financial markets
  • Energy finance
