The European Banking Authority (EBA) launches a call for research papers in view of the 2020 Policy Research Workshop taking place on 12-13 November 2020 in Paris on the topic "New technologies in the banking sector – impacts, risks and opportunities". The submission deadline is 10 July 2020.
The workshop aims at bringing together economists and researchers from supervisory authorities and central banks, as well as leading academics, to discuss the future of new technologies in the banking sector and what measures could be taken by policy makers to improve and reap further benefits while ensuring the proper assessment of micro-prudential risks, vulnerabilities and preserving financial stability. Another focus will be on cyber risks, an important area of operational risk which is becoming increasingly relevant for credit institutions of all types.
In preparation for the workshop, the EBA invites the submission of policy oriented, preferably empirical, research papers on the new technologies in the banking sector. 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 10 July 2020.
Contributors will be notified by early September 2020.
