Call For Papers
Advances in Econometric Conference on Dynamic Factor Models

Nov 15-17, 2014, Aarhus, Denmark

Deadline for paper/extended abstract submission: July 1, 2014

Dynamic factor models are an active and growing area of research, both in econometrics and in macroeconomics. Many applications lie at the center of policy questions raised by recent crises, such as the connections between yields on government debt, credit risk, inflation, and economic growth.

OVERVIEW: Advances in Econometrics will host a conference on dynamic factor models at the Center for Research in Econometric Analysis of Time Series (CREATES) at Aarhus University, Denmark, on November 15 to 17, 2014. Submissions to this call for papers will be considered for presentation at the conference and for possible inclusion in Volume 35 of Advances in Econometrics. The volume will be edited by Siem Jan Koopman (VU University Amsterdam) and Eric Hillebrand (Aarhus University).

TOPICS: Topics may include, but are not limited to, dynamic factor model specification, asymptotic and finite-sample behavior of parameter estimators, identification, frequentist and Bayesian estimation of the corresponding state space models, and applications. The review process for the volume will begin after the conference and will be completed by May of 2015. The volume will appear in print in the fall of 2015.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Please email extended abstracts or complete papers no later than July 1, 2014, to: Siem Jan Koopman ( and Eric Hillebrand ( ).
