Inflation: Drivers and Dynamics Conference 2020

The Center for Inflation Research is a new initiative of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. We are very excited about this initiative and the contributions it will make across multiple audiences, and you can sign up here to receive updates as our efforts move forward.


The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Center for Inflation Research and the European Central Bank will organize the Inflation: Drivers and Dynamics 2020 conference. Global health conditions and travel restrictions necessitate that the conference will take place virtually. Links to the virtual conference sessions will be shared as they become available.

The conference will bring together top researchers from academia, central banks, and other policy institutions to present research findings related to inflation.  Some of the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Inflation dynamics and monetary policy
  • Determinants of inflation expectations and their relationship with observed inflation
  • Input costs—including wages, intermediate inputs, commodity prices, and international components of costs—and their role in inflation dynamics
  • Micro-level price dynamics and implications for aggregate inflation
  • Inflation forecasting
