VfS Annual Conference "Big Data", September 11th-14th, 2022, Basel, Switzerland

The German Economic Association (Verein fuer Socialpolitik – VfS) is pleased to announced its annual conference 2022 "Big Data" which will be held on September 11th – 14th, 2022 at the University Basel, Switzerland. The VfS Annual Conference consists of an Open Meeting with mixed topics and of a core conference with invited lectures concerning "Big Data in Economics". Presentations and Organised Sessions for the Open Meeting may be submitted from all fields of economics. The availability of massive datasets on economic choices of individuals and firms, from administrative and corporate sources, changes empirical research in the social sciences fundamentally. Economists and statisticians develop new methods that provide new answers to old-standing empirical questions and allow for much faster and granular research. At the same time, new data and methods also change the way administrations and firms work, which creates new and challenging questions for public policy. Call for papers on economic topics: February 1st - March 1st, 2022.
