The European Banking Authority (EBA) launches today a call for research papers in view of its fifth policy research workshop taking place on 28-29 November 2016 in London on the topic ‘Competition in banking: implications for financial regulation and supervision'.
The workshop aims at bringing together economists from national supervisory authorities and leading academics to stimulate the discussion on how the banking sector is evolving and which are the challenges for banks and for their regulators.
In preparation for the workshop, the EBA invites the submission of policy‐oriented – preferably empirical –research papers in this area. 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 01 August 2016 and contributors will be notified by early September 2016.
Participation in the workshop is by invitation only.
