Annual International Journal of Central Banking Research Conference
Structural changes in the financial system: new theory and evidence
20-21 August 2020, Danmarks Nationalbank in Copenhagen, Denmark
The International Journal of Central Banking (IJCB) is organising its 2020 annual conference, “Structural changes in the financial system: new theory and evidence”. The conference will take place on 20-21 August 2020 at Danmarks Nationalbank in Copenhagen, Denmark. The programme committee comprises Tobias Adrian, Elena Carletti, Huberto Ennis, Linda Goldberg, Luc Laeven, and Steven Ongena.
Since the global financial crisis, the financial system has undergone major structural changes due to the fallout from the crisis, technological innovation, changes in the underlying growth rates of economies, the interest rate environment and the growth of non-banks. This raises many questions about the future landscape of the financial system and how policymakers should react to these developments. This conference will bring together leading economists from central banks, academia, and other research institutions to discuss new results and policy lessons pertaining to structural changes in the financial system.
We seek both empirical and theoretical policy-relevant papers. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- changing bank structure and business models, including the effects of interest rates, regulation and competition;
- the rise of bigtech and fintech, including their impact on the banking system;
- the impact of shadow banks on systemic risk in the financial system;
- central bank digital currencies;
- the impact of Basel III and other regulatory changes on the banking system and the real economy;
- the design of macroprudential regulation, including borrower-based and capital-based measures;
- institutional design of supervision and regulation, including the banking union;
- the implications of societal demands on the financial sector with respect to sustainability, transparency and equity;
- changes in the structure and functioning of participants in international financial flows.
Six to eight papers will be selected for presentation from among those submitted in response to this announcement. There is no obligation that a paper submitted to the conference also be submitted to the IJCB. However, if at the time of submission to the conference the authors indicate they would like their paper to also be considered for publication in the IJCB, papers accepted for the conference will receive an expedited review process at the journal. Papers considered for publication in the IJCB must not be under review at another journal.
- Complete manuscripts (not abstracts) in PDF format should be submitted using our online submission website at: http://editorialexpress.com/conference/IJCB2020/.
- Submitted papers must be received by 28 February 2020.
- Authors must indicate (in the comment field when submitting online) whether they would like their paper to be considered for submission to the IJCB in addition to the conference. Authors submitting a paper to the conference and to the IJCB must confirm in the comment field that their submitted paper is not under review at another journal.
The author(s) of each accepted paper will be notified by 31 March 2020. For academic presenters and discussants without access to their own funding, some funds will be available to cover reasonable travel and hotel expenses.
