delayed in London [CFE 2015]
Today I am giving a talk at the 9th International Conference on Computational and Financial Econometrics (CFE 2015), in London. The number of parallel sessions there is astounding, which makes me [now] wonder at the appeal of such a large conference and the pertinence of giving a talk in parallel with so many other talks that I end up talking at the same time as Pierre Pudlo, who is presenting our ABC with random forest paper (in the twin CMStatistics 2015!). While I may sound overly pessimistic, or just peeved from missing the second day of workshops at NIPS!, there is no reason to doubt the quality of the talks, given the list of authors (and friends) there. So I am looking forward to see what I can get from this multipurpose econometrics and statistics conference.
