The European Banking Authority (EBA) launched today a call for research papers in view of its sixth policy research workshop taking place on 28-29 November 2017 in London on the topic "The future role of quantitative models in financial regulation".
The workshop aims at bringing together economists and researchers from supervisory authorities and central banks, as well as leading academics, to discuss how the financial sector is evolving in the use of quantitative modelling and the challenges we can expect in the future for both for institutions and their regulators.
In preparation for the workshop, the EBA invites the submission of policy‐oriented, preferably empirical, research papers in the benefits and possible shortcomings of the use of financial modelling for regulatory purposes. Researchers from supervisory authorities and central banks are particularly encouraged to submit their papers for presentation.
Interested parties can download the detailed call for papers which includes specific proposed topics for the papers, composition of the programme committee and contact details for the submission of papers. The submission deadline is 04 August 2017.
Participation in the workshop is by invitation only and contributors will be notified by early September 2017.
