14th Swiss Winter Conference on Financial Intermediation


Meeting Code: 

The organising committee of this small, informal conference invites submissions of high quality theoretical or empirical research papers on financial intermediation.

To respond, please register or subit a paper via the link https://portal.cepr.org/14th-swiss-winter-conference-financial-intermediation. The deadline for replies is 6pm (GMT), Sunday 30 October 2020. If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create a new profile here and then click on the registration link above. If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting, please contact Mariolina Ciccone, Events Officer, at mciccone@cepr.org (with subject header 5754 Swiss Winter Conference 2021).

Authors will be notified about the acceptance of papers and the conference program by 4 December 2020. There is no conference fee and there are no accommodation costs for the invited presenters, discussants and chairs, but all participants must cover their own travel costs.

The conference will be held at the Hotel Schweizerhof in the mountain resort of Lenzerheide, Switzerland (www.schweizerhof-lenzerheide.ch). The academic programme starts Monday morning (29 March) and ends Wednesday (31 March) before noon. Due to capacity constraints, preference will be given to participants who can stay for the whole duration of the conference. Participants should plan to arrive Sunday afternoon (28 March) and leave Wednesday afternoon (31 March).

There will be eleven papers and discussions (including one session covered by the BIS on financial innovation), twenty posters, and one session with five research idea "elevator pitches". However, ample time for discussion, reflection and outdoor activities will be left for sure. Accommodation costs and meals during the conference will be sponsored by the Bank for International Settlements, the Swiss Finance Institute, the University of ZurichKU Leuven and the Goethe Universität Frankfurt. 

In case Covid19 prevents the conference to take place in person or large groups, we will adjust towards a combination of online and personal presence conference, or a completely online conference.

The conference is committed to promoting high-quality diversity in the covered topics (e.g., green, Islamic, shadow and/or behavioural banking), in the modelling techniques and data sets employed, and in the background of the participants (e.g., institutional affiliation, gender, nationality).
