Workshop on Recent Developments in Financial Data Science and Econometrics

  • 26 September 2018
  • 9am-5pm
  • West Park Teaching Hub Rooms WPT005 and WPT001

About this event

Financial Data Science is an emerging complementary field to Econometrics. It is concerned with the estimation of robust and accurate models from empirical data but puts a stronger emphasis than traditional Econometrics on the relevance of novel data sets and new technologies made possible through recent advances in computer science such as Deep Learning. 

Financial Data Science is thus positioned at the intersection between financial markets, statistics and computer science.

This workshop will draw together academics and practitioners to discuss and debate key issues around these rapidly developing areas. 
 
Papers for the workshop and special issue which use novel datasets or recently developed techniques or study recent uncertain time periods are especially encouraged.
