11th ECB Forecasting Conference

 Always a great conference!

11th ECB Conference on Forecasting Techniques — Macroeconomic forecasting in abnormal times,

will take place as an online event at the ECB on 15 and 16 June 2021.

Joshua Chan (Purdue University) and Christopher Sims (Princeton University) have confirmed their participation as keynote speakers. Lucrezia Reichlin (London Business School) will moderate a panel discussion with Joshua Chan, Christopher Sims and Matt Taddy (Amazon) on “Current challenges in macroeconomic forecasting and the way ahead”.

We particularly encourage submissions on robust forecasting in the presence of nonlinearities and structural breaks, such as COVID-19; forecasting inflation, real activity, and exchange rates under changing monetary policy frameworks; robust forecasting in the presence of large risks, e.g. related to climate change; modelling and forecasting when facing tail events; machine learning and scalable forecasting methods; big and/or unstructured data and dimension reduction techniques. However, the scope of the conference is not limited to these topics and submissions from all areas of forecasting are welcome.

The deadline for submissions is 23 March 2021.

In the context of the conference, we are organising a paper competition for PhD students who have a research interest in forecasting. Please advertise this competition in your networks. The call for papers for this competition is online at
