6th CSDA International Conference on
COMPUTATIONAL AND FINANCIAL ECONOMETRICS (CFE 2012)
1-3 December 2012, Conference Centre, Oviedo, Spain
Computational and financial econometrics comprise a broad field that
has clearly interested a wide variety of researchers in economics,
finance, statistics, mathematics and computing. Examples include
financial time series analyses that focus on efficient and robust
portfolio allocations over time, asset valuations with emphases on
option pricing, volatility measurements, models of market
microstructure effects and credit risk. While such studies are often
theoretical, they can also have a strong empirical element measuring
risk and return and often have a significant computational aspect
dealing with issues like high-dimensionality and large numbers of
observations. Algorithmic developments are also of interest since
existing algorithms often do not utilize the best computational
techniques for efficiency, stability, or conditioning. So also are
developments of environments for conducting econometrics, which are
inherently computer based. Integrated econometrics packages have grown
well over the years, but still have much room for development.
This conference invites oral and poster presentations that contain
computational or financial econometric components. The organization of
sessions and minisymposia are encouraged.
Tutorials are given on Thursday the 30th of November 2012 by Andrew
Harvey and Hans Mueller.

The new CSDA Annals of Computational and Financial Econometrics is
associated with this conference. The Annals are published as a
supplement to Computational Statistics & Data Analysis to serve as an
outlet for distinguished research papers in computational econometrics
and financial econometrics. Papers containing strong computational,
statistical, or econometric components or substantive data-analytic
elements will be considered for publication either in the Annals of
CFE or in the regular issues of CSDA. Guest Editors of the annals:
David Belsley, Erricos J. Kontoghiorghes and Herman K. Van Dijk:
Luc Bauwens, Stefan Mittnik and Esther Ruiz.
International Organizing Committee:
Ana Colubi, Christophe Croux, Erricos J. Kontoghiorghes and Herman
