Inforum Conferences

Inforum organizes two conferences each year. The world conferences allow Inforum to meet with international partners to discuss research techniques and their latest findings. Inforum's Outlook Conferences are attended by colleagues and clients and typically discuss the current economic climate.

    World Conferences

    Since 1993, Inforum has held an annual world conference. The aim of these conferences is to advance the work of empirical input-output modeling, analysis, and data development techniques through the presentation and publication of papers representing the work of Inforum activities worldwide. Although the agenda overlaps somewhat with that of the International Input-Output Conference, it more specifically is dedicated to empirical work, especially in the areas of model building and data development.
