The Banque de France and the Bocconi University are organizing a conference on October 17-18th, 2019, in Milano. The recent arrival of new sources of information has triggered an outburst of alternative datasets (social networks, business systems, internet of things, large micro datasets…), potentially useful for macro-economic analysis and monetary policy. In turn, this has led to the development of quantitative approaches able to deal with those large datasets.
The conference will cover a variety of themes related to the use of alternative datasets for economic analysis and monetary policy. In particular, we are interested in papers addressing issues including (but not limited to):
· Econometric methods for the analysis of large unstructured datasets
· Structural analysis with large datasets
· Large micro datasets for monetary policy
· Monetary and macro models estimated with alternative datasets
· Empirical analyses based on heterogeneous agents models
· Macroeconomic now-casting and forecasting with alternative datasets
· Early Warning Systems based on large datasets
· Use of alternative datasets for emerging economies
· Text-mining techniques
Interested persons can email their paper or extended abstract, or express their will to participate, to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: BdF-Bocconi Workshop. A limited amount of funding is available for travel and accommodation expenses for active academic participants. Please indicate in the email whether you need funding.
