The Third International Econometric Conference of Vietnam - ECONVN2020
Vung Tau and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, January 14-16, 2020

Main theme: Data Science for Financial Econometrics

The Conference The first ECONVN2018 focused on the main theme "Econometrics for Financial Applications"; contributed papers were published in the Springer Series in Computational Intelligence, # 760, 2018. 
The main theme of the second conference ECONVN2019 was "Beyond Traditional Probabilistic Methods in Economics"; contributed papers were published in the Springer Series in Computational Intelligence, # 908, 2019.
This third conference ECONVN2020 will be devoted to recent improved methods for economic data analysis, under the theme “Data Science for Financial Econometrics”.
The theme arises at a critical moment where the huge amount of available data and a drastic increase in the computer speed necessitate the need for new methods capable of reliable processing all this data, extracting useful information from it, and making recommendations based on this information.
While the theme is the focus of the conference, all other research in economics, especially in finance and banking, are welcome.
Accepted papers that satisfy Springer criteria for innovativeness will be published in the Springer Series in Computational Intelligence (SCOPUS).
