The invited speaker is Andrew Harvey (Professor of Econometrics, University of Cambridge). Andrew is a well-known critic of the Box-Jenkins methodology and has been the leading advocate of structural time series models as the appropriate foundation for economic time series analysis and forecasting. His 1989 book, 'Forecasting, structural time series models and the Kalman filter', is a classic reference for such models and their application. One of his many studies was influential in the retention of compulsory seat-belt legislation in the UK.
