The FDIC's Center for Financial Research and the JFSR invite submissions for the 17th Annual Fall Research Conference to be held in Arlington, Virginia on Thursday, September 7, and Friday, September 8, 2017.
The program committee invites theoretical and empirical papers on issues related to the performance and regulation of the financial sector including, but not limited to, the following:
- Deposit insurance
- Risk measurement

- Assessing Dodd-Frank regulatory reforms
- Trends in financial products, services, and technology

- Interaction between regulation and cost and availability of credit
- Governance and compensation practices in the financial sector
In conjunction with the conference, we are seeking papers for a Special Session on the technical aspects of Regulatory Capital and Liquidity Requirements in Basel III. For this session, the program committee encourages the submission of papers that address topics on risk measurement, the implementation of regulatory capital and liquidity requirements, and the implications of these requirements for regulated institutions and shadow banks.
Papers will be selected for presentation based on reviews by FDIC Economists, associate editors of the JFSR, and the organizing committee (Rosalind Bennett, Manju Puri and Haluk Unal).
Selected papers may be invited for submission to the JFSR.
Expenses for travel and lodging will be reimbursed for paper presenters. Papers must be received by June 19, 2017. Authors will be notified on the status of their papers by August 1, 2017
