The NBER-NSF Conference on Time Series 2015

The NBER-NSF was first organized 35 years ago in order to bring together the most productive researchers in economic time series analysis to exchange new ideas. This year, NBER-NSF Conference on Time Series follows the success of the first meeting, as one of the leading Conferences in Economics and Mathematical Economics.

The NBER-NSF was first organized 35 years ago with the goal of bringing the most productive researchers in economic time series analysis together to exchange new ideas. This year’s NBER-NSF Conference on Time Series follows in the footsteps of the very first meeting as one of the leading conferences in economics and mathematical economics.

The NBER-NSF workshop has evolved into one of the most important time series conferences, attracting between 80 and 130 participants from the US and abroad each year. The meeting has been hosted by institutions such as Harvard University, Duke University, the University of Rotterdam, the University of Chicago, Academia Sinica (Taipei), Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Heidelberg, the University of Montreal,the  Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis (in 2014).

While the seminar routinely attracts the most respected and noted researchers in in economic and financial time series, including Nobel Prize winners (such as Engle, Granger, Sims, and Sargent), the organizers are also strongly encouraged to seek out junior researchers in economics and statistics as well as interested time series scientists from other disciplines. Many of the workshop participants hold important posts in the field of statistics/econometrics, including editors of major journals, reviewers for nationally funded research grants, and researchers at national banks. The conference also has strong ties with the Census Bureau and the Federal Reserve.
