Papers for FDIC bank research conference due April 12

Papers for the 23rd Annual Bank Research Conference are due April 12, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) said in a reminder message issued Monday.

The FDIC’s Center for Financial Research is holding the conference Sept. 19-20 in Arlington, Va. It’s inviting theoretical and empirical papers on issues related to financial regulation, competition and performance in the banking and financial sectors, financial stability, bank and nonbank financial intermediation, bank capital, and risk management, the agency said.

Also invited are submissions on emerging topics, including but not limited to the following:

  • Role and effectiveness of deposit insurance in ensuring stability
  • Deposit insurance reform options and considerations
  • Banking amid fluctuating interest rates
  • Cryptoassets and tokenization of assets and liabilities
  • Climate-related financial risks
  • Fintech and trends in financial products, services, and technology

The FDIC said papers will be selected for presentation based on reviews by FDIC economists and the conference organizing committee, with final selections made by external reviewers. Papers must be received by April 12, and authors will be notified about the status of their papers in July.

Lodging and food will be provided for paper presenters, it said.
