Inhaltliche Beschreibung: 

Due to the coronavirus situation the workshop has been postponed to Oct 28 – Oct 30, 2020.

The conference welcomes contributions from different approaches to economic forecasting, including forecasts based on time series models (VAR, SVAR, Factor Models,…), DSGE models, large scale structural models or forecasting using microeconomic data. Another topic of interest is forecast evaluation.

The goal of this conference is to exchange ideas and to discuss recent results and developments in economic forecasting. Authors working in applications or theory of economic forecasting are invited to submit an abstract.

In conjunction with the workshop the conference organizers will edit a special issue of the journal Econometrics, with submissions open to all participants.

Due to the ongoing uncertainties in relation to COVID-19 and due to the security measures currently in place in Austria we can only welcome about 30 participants on the premises of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Vienna. We are working at setting up a program that best reflects the participants’ preferences concerning physical or virtual participation at the workshop.
