ESOBE stands for European Seminar on Bayesian Econometrics. This series of seminars was launched in 2010 with the first meeting in Rotterdam. In recent decades Bayesian econometrics has expanded enormously in areas such as optimal processing of information from different sources, efficient forecasting using sets of models, and measuring policy effective-ness and its associated risk.

The ESOBE meetings have no particular theme, but are intended as a discussion forum for new and recent research. Their aim is to bring together researchers and professionals interested in the application of Bayesian inference in economics in relatively small annual workshops that usually take two days.
