Recent waves of financial instability have sparked an acute interest in analytics for systemic risk measurement. This conference brings together most recent advances on computational tools for systemic risk identification and assessment. The scope of models and techniques includes systemic risk and early-warning indicators, network and contagion analysis, macro stress-testing, as well as measures of coinciding systemic stress and systemically important financial institutions. The aim of the conference is to also adopt methods and techniques from other disciplines, such as computer science, biology and physics, that use computer-intensive approaches, novel data sources, visual representations or interactive interfaces, among others.
The themes of the conference cover policy and practitioner-oriented research related to systemic risk measurement. We solicit contributions covering a broad range of techniques related to systemic risk analytics, particularly related to (but not limited to) the following three themes:
- Implications of the zero interest-rate environment on systemic risk
- Mapping systemic risk analytics to macroprudential policy and regulation
- Risks and opportunities stemming from disruptive innovations in financial technology (FinTech)
We welcome original manuscripts that have not yet been published in peer-reviewed journals. Submitted manuscripts may be part of a working paper series. The papers should be emailed by March 31, 2017 with the subject line “Submission – SRA2017″ to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send acceptance decisions to authors by mid-May 2017.
Presenters are encouraged to submit their papers to a post-conference special issue. The journal will be announced later.
