The national bank regulator on Monday issued a call for academic research papers on emerging risks in the banking system or related policy and supervisory issues, setting a March 3 deadline for submission.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said it will invite authors of selected papers to present to OCC staff, as well as invited academic and government researchers, at the agency’s headquarters in Washington June 12-14. It said those authors will be notified by April 14 and will have the option of presenting their papers virtually.

Those interested may submit their papers by email to EconomicsSymposium@occ.treas.gov, the agency said. It said research papers must represent original and unpublished research. Those interested in acting as a discussant may express their interest in doing so in their submission email, it said.
