The conference aims to connect leading researchers in academia and policy institutions to present and discuss the latest advances in the interdisciplinary field of advanced analytics. How do advanced analytics best address pressing policy questions, and how do the resulting answers compare with conventional approaches? Could these novel approaches become the norm and how?

Advanced analytics techniques, such as the analysis of novel large and unstructured data sources, or the application of techniques from machine learning and artificial intelligence, offer new insights into problems in economics and finance. These approaches have now found their way into broad-based research programmes in academia and policy institutions. This conference is the latest in a series of events jointly organised by the Bank of England (BoE), the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Data Analytics for Finance and Macro Research Centre (DAFM) at King’s College London.

The conference aims to connect leading researchers in academia and policy institutions to present and discuss the latest advances in the interdisciplinary field of advanced analytics. For example, how do these techniques best address pressing policy questions, and how do the resulting answers compare with conventional approaches? Could these novel approaches become the norm and how? We particularly encourage submissions that apply advanced analytics techniques to the following topics:

  • monetary policy transmission, policy interactions, heterogeneous effects, communication
  • trade and capital flows networks, exchange rates
  • macroprudential and supervisory analysis and policy
  • fintech and suptech, digital currencies, blockchains
  • assessing and addressing risks from shocks and structural economic change

The scope of the conference is not limited to the topics listed above, and submissions on other relevant policy questions are welcome.
