NBP Workshop on Forecasting
21-22 November 2016
Narodowy Bank Polski (Warsaw, Poland)
The workshop will provide an opportunity to share the latest practical solutions in forecasting used by central banks and other institutions and to discuss relevant research developments. Modelling and forecasting of growth, inflation and related higher-frequency indicators are within the scope of the workshop. Empirical and theoretical submissions are welcome. Specific topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- Univariate and multivariate density forecasts: evaluation, combination, presentation
- Applications of unobserved component models, mixture models, non-linear or non-Gaussian models
- Modelling of structural instabilities and time varying relationships, the use of shrinkage methods
- Incorporating short time-series and experts’ knowledge into forecasts
- Dealing with data features in nowcasting: mixed frequencies, ragged edges, real time data, missing observations
Our intention is to provide a sound theoretical background for discussing up-to-date applied forecasting experiences. The workshop is targeted at analysts employed at forecasting units of central banks and forecasting institutions as well as academics interested in the field. The scientific programme will include contributed talks and poster presentations.
