The topic of the conference concerns the large datasets becoming available in Economics and Finance, and the techniques to treat these data. Their treatments require both new structural economic models, and new statistical tools. This conference will bring together researchers in Economics/ Finance, specialists of the modelling of these new data, and theoretical statisticians. This event aims to facilitate the transfer of some statistical methods and inference techniques such as statistics on manifolds, composite likelihood approaches, sparse regressions, factor models, granularity theory, to the needs of researchers in Economics and Finance.
