The International Journal of Central Banking (IJCB) is organising its 2022 annual conference, “The New Financial Landscape for Central Banks”. The conference will be hosted by the Bank of Canada in Ottawa on 10-11 August 2022. The programme committee comprises Tobias Adrian, Huberto Ennis, Elena Loutskina, Fernanda Nechio and Steven Ongena.
Over the past few years, the financial landscape for central banks globally has changed in at least two fundamental ways. First, the extraordinary interventions by central banks and governments in response to COVID-19 have affected the liquidity and balance sheet positions of the private and financial sectors in a major way. This raises many questions about the impact of such policies on the investment and financing decisions of private individuals, corporations, financial institutions, and investment funds alike, and the potential financial stability risks and side effects on financial markets such policies create, including if and when central bank liquidity support is withdrawn. Second, climate change and the transition to a green economy will require major shifts in resource allocation and the way these resources are financed. This raises many questions about the impact of climate change on the financial system and pricing in financial markets, the role that central banks play in the development of climate finance and the role of banking supervision in greening the financial sector. This conference will bring together leading economists from central banks, academia and other research institutions to discuss new results and policy lessons pertaining to these two broad areas of interest. Papers that do not speak directly to central banks but to the topics of liquidity and balance sheets or climate finance more generally will also be considered.
TOPICS: We seek both empirical and theoretical policy-relevant papers. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
– The effect of central bank interventions on liquidity and balance sheets
– The impact of central bank interventions on financial markets and financial stability
– The international transmission of global liquidity shocks
– Central bank purchases of green assets
– Bank supervision and climate risks
– Sustainable finance
– Green certification, and the role of transparency and disclosure of green exposures
Six to eight papers will be selected for presentation from those submitted in response to this announcement. There is no obligation that a paper submitted to the conference also be submitted to the IJCB. But if at the time of submission to the conference, the authors indicate they would like their paper to also be considered for publication in the IJCB, papers accepted for the conference will receive an expedited review process at the journal. Papers considered for publication in the IJCB cannot be under review at another journal.
– Complete manuscripts (not abstracts) in PDF format should be submitted using our online submission website at: http://editorialexpress.com/conference/IJCB2022.
– Submitted papers must be received by 31 March 2022.
– Authors must indicate (in the comment field when submitting online) whether they would like their paper to be considered for submission to the IJCB in addition to the conference. Authors submitting a paper to the conference and to the IJCB must confirm in the comment field that their submitted paper is not under review at another journal.
The author(s) of each accepted paper will be notified by 15 May 2022. For academic presenters and discussants without access to their own funding, some funds will be available to cover reasonable travel and hotel expenses.
