Econometrics and Finance

The track concerns with methodological and computational aspects of econometrics. Empirical aspects of analysing financial time series are also addressed.


Computational and financial econometrics have been of interest for a wide variety of researchers in economics, finance, statistics, mathematics and computing. Financial time series analyses focus on asset valuations over time with emphases on option pricing, volatility measurement, and modelling market microstructure effects. Apart from theoretical developments, financial time series analyses also have a high empirical content. The computational aspects of such analyses are of crucial importance since one typically deals with high-dimensional problems and large numbers of observations. Existing algorithms often do not utilize the best computational techniques for efficiency, stability, or conditioning. Furthermore, environments for conducting econometrics are inherently computer based. Integrated econometrics packages have grown well over the years, but still have much room for development.
