Call For Papers

The FDIC’s Center for Financial Research and the JFSR invite submissions for the 18th Annual Fall Research Conference to be held in Arlington, Virginia on Thursday, September 6 and Friday, September 7, 2018.

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
  • Governance and compensation practices in the financial sector
  • Regulatory capital and liquidity requirements
  • Trends in financial products, services, and technology
  • Trends in industry competition, market structure, and bank scope economies
  • Systemic risk and financial system resilience
  • Interaction between regulation and the cost and availability of credit
  • Financial sector performance
  • Fintech

In conjunction with the conference, we are seeking papers for a Special Session on “The Decade After the 2008 Crisis”. For this session, the program committee encourages the submission of papers that address topics on the implementation and the implications of Dodd-Frank 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, food, and lodging will be reimbursed for paper presenters. Papers must be received by June 14, 2018. Authors will be notified about the status of their papers by July 15, 2018.
