Model Uncertainty, Identification
and Selection in Econometrics
October 21 – 22, 2005

The Canadian Econometrics Study Group (CESG) provides the stimulus and focal point for econometrics research in Canada, by organizing a specialized annual conference. The annual conferences have been the major factor in molding Canadian econometricians into the cohesive group they are today, fostering collaborations, stimulating research and raising awareness of the most current research. The program sessions are chosen to be highly- focused; no other conference in Canada can provide the same degree of sustained concentration in this particular field of study.
The Economics Department at Simon Fraser University (SFU) is honoured to organize this conference, which has evolved into a highly effective and prestigious event. This year’s theme is “Model Uncertainty, Identification and Selection in Econometrics” and will include discussions on the impact of model uncertainty on inference, parametric vision, the assumption of a true DGP and the evaluation based on estimation.
