Applied Macroeconomics Conference, Henan University, Kaifeng, China, March 18-19, 2015

Posted on 2014/11/25. Filed under: 綜合 |

Dear Colleagues:

This is a reminder of an interesting conference. On March 18th and 19th 2015 the School of Economics of Henan University (HenU) and the International Network for Economic Research (INFER) will hold its 1st Joint Workshop on Applied Macroeconomics at Kaifeng, Henan Province.

Papers that are selected for presentation will receive complimentary lodging at a five-star hotel in Kaifeng. For more details, please refer to the attached call-for-papers.

For those that not familiar with Henan University, it is the flagship university of Henan Province, which is one of the most populous provinces in China (with a population exceeding 100 million). The city Kaifeng is an ancient capital of China, the seat of the North Song Dynasty, when China experienced a surge of technological advancements. Historical and cultural site are in abundance, and is a day trip away from Luoyang (an even more famous ancient capital,), Ying ruins (dating back to 11 or 12 century B.C.), and the famous Shoaling Temple, just to name a few.

We sincerely welcome your participation in this historical workshop as we work together to understand the cause of the Great Recession and strive to make sure it does not happen again.

If you are interested in participating, please submit your abstract/paper directly to the Conference (see the attached call-for-paper). In addition, please drop me a line as “heads-up”. I am on the Scientific Committee, and will hence keep an eye out for your submission.

Jack W. Hou

Professor of Economics

professor in microeconomic theory including experimental economics and
behavioral economics. The official job posting can be found under

https://www.aeaweb.org/joe/listing.php?JOE_ID=2014-02_111451224

I encourage all qualified candidates to apply. For candidates outside
the US who hesitate about living in the US, let me mention that Davis
is not the usual collection of strip malls and highways. It is more
like a garden town with coffee shops, restaurants, a big concert hall,
and bike paths everywhere. We are between San Francisco and South Lake
Tahoe (skiing, climbing, hiking).

Professor Härdle’s research interests focus on the dimension reduction techniques, computational statistics and quantitative finance. His research articles have been published in several prestigious journals, such as Journal of the American Statistical Association, Journal of Econometrics, Journal of Financial Econometrics, Journal of Empirical Finance, Journal of Forecasting, Journal of Risk and Insurance and Quantitative Finance.

[Lecture
Overview]

Portfolio selection and risk management are very actively studied topics in quantitative finance and applied statistics. They are closely related to the dependency structure of portfolio assets or risk factors. The correlation structure across assets and opposite tail movements are essential to the asset allocation problem, since they determine the level of risk in a position. Correlation alone is not informative on the distributional details of the assets. By introducing TEDAS -Tail Event Driven ASset allocation, one studies the dependence between assets at different quantiles. In a hedging exercise, TEDAS uses adaptive Lasso based quantile regression in order to determine an active set of negative non-zero coefficients. Based on these active risk factors, an adjustment for intertemporal correlation is made. Finally, the asset allocation weights are determined via a Cornish-Fisher Value-at-Risk optimization. TEDAS is studied in simulation and a practical utility-based example using hedge fund indices.
