The banking sector is undergoing rapid technological change.

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers in different fields of finance and economics to discuss current issues in banking, financial stability, and financial regulation. We are inviting high quality submissions of both theoretical and empirical nature on micro- and macroeconomic aspects of financial intermediation.

TOPICS: Topics could include, but are not limited to:

– Technological advances and access to credit;

– Changing business models of banks and financial stability;

– Evolving competition in the financial sector;

– The adequacy of micro and macro-prudential policies to safeguard financial stability;

– The resolution of failed banks and too-big-to-fail (TBTF);
