The well-established Tinbergen Institute Econometrics Lectures 2013 will take place from the 22nd to 25th of May and focus on the lecture of Prof. Mark Watson (Princeton University) with the title “Inference about low-frequency characteristics of economic time series”. The Tinbergen Institute Econometrics Lectures are a co-production of Princeton University Press and the Econometric Institute. Series editors of these lectures are the econometricians of Erasmus School of Economics Prof. Herman van Dijk and Prof. Philip Hans Franses.
For every series of lectures various internationally leading scientists in applied econometrics are invited to give lectures over a three day period, on a topic in which they have contributed significantly. The first sets of lectures were given in 2003 by Robert Engle, Nobel laureate in Economics in that same year. The fifth set of lectures was given by Tom Sargent, Nobel Laureate in Economics in 2011. After the event, the renowned Princeton University Press publishes these lectures as a book.
