The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta welcomes submissions to be considered for the 9th Annual European Seminar on Bayesian Econometrics (ESOBE) to be held October 11-12, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the New Orleans Branch of the Atlanta Fed. The ESOBE meetings aim at bringing together researchers and professionals interested in the application of Bayesian inference. We invite papers applying Bayesian econometrics and statistical methods to financial time series analysis, risk management, economic growth analysis, measurement of policy effectiveness, individual decision making in marketing, labor market analysis, forecasting in monetary policy, just to name a few.

Authors should submit an extended abstract or completed paper by July 13, 2018. Acceptance notifications will be sent by August 17, 2018.

About ESOBE:

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.
