Central Bank Macro Modeing Workshop (CBMMW) Series
The CBMMW started at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand in 1998 after they had developed a model-based foreword-looking forecasting and policy analysis system (FPAS) to support their flexible inflation targeting regime. Since 1998 it has moved from central bank to central bank with the purpose of connecting central bank modeling efforts with research in academia.
For the past 25 years, the CBMMW has been held on an annual basis, with the most recent edition in November 2022 hosted by the Central Bank of Colombia. Beginning in 2023, we will be moving to a quarterly format, with each of the four workshops to be held during the second week of the first month of each quarter.
The inaugural quarterly conference in January, as well as later conferences in April and October, will feature a series of invited and keynote presentations. This approach will allow us to devote much more time to each of the invited papers in the quarterly workshops. The flagship annual conference in July will feature a combination of both submitted papers and invited/keynote presentations, and will be much larger in scope than the quarterly conferences (averaging 60-100 presentations over the past few years).
