2019 Shanghai Econometrics Workshop Held at SOE


During June 23 and 24, the 2019 Shanghai Econometrics Workshop was held by SOE, the IAR and the Key Laboratory of Mathematical Economics (SUFE), Ministry of Education. Professor Cheng Hsiao, Professor of University of Southern California, Honorary Professor of City University of Hong Kong, Fellow of Econometric Society and Editor of Journal of Econometrics, delivered keynote speech at the workshop.

About 40 overseas and domestic experts and scholars from renowned universities and institutions made presentations at the workshop, including those of UCLA, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Pennsylvania State University, Boston College, Ohio State University, Texas A&M University, University of Washington, Indiana University, University of Texas at Austin, York University, Kent University, Queen Mary University of London, the University of Warwick, the University of Toronto, the University of Guelph, Singapore Management University, Fudan University, Nanjing University, Xiamen University, Zhongshan University, Jilin University, Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, Dongbei University of Finance and Economics, Capital University of Economics and Business, Guangzhou University, Hefei University of Technology, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.

At the opening ceremony, Dean Guoqiang Tian expressed his warm welcome to the guests, recalled the reform process of the SOE in the past 15 years and fruitful research results achieved in recent years. He emphasized that the inherent logic of institution is the key to a successful reform, and hoped that all guests will continue to support the reform and innovation of the SOE. He also expected that by holding high-level academic workshops, a benign mechanism will be established to facilitate the exchanges and cooperation between SOE and domestic and overseas scholars, so as to further promote the development of economics discipline of SUFE.

During the two-day meeting, the participating experts and scholars conducted lively and in-depth discussions on their latest research results. The topics covered the frontier progress of econometric theory and the latest achievements of econometric methods in empirical research on economics in China. The presentations of econometric theory included spatial measurement model, network economics model, auction model, time series model, conditional moment inequality model, panel data model, identification, estimation and inference of quantile regression model. The topics of empirical research covered monetary policy, financial risk, economic growth, foreign exchange policy, minimum wage, local debt, environmental regulation and labor mobility.
