Call For Papers - Conference 2012
11th October - 12th October, 2012, Sydney Australia
The Paul Woolley Centres for the Study of Capital Market Dysfunctionality 6th Annual Conference
Closing Date for Submissions: February 13th, 2012
The Paul Woolley Centres for the Study of Capital Market Dysfunctionality were established during 2006 as the result of generous grants made by Dr. Paul Woolley (ex-Chairman, GMO Europe). The centres are located at the London School of Economics, Toulouse University and the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). The UTS Centre is to hold its 6th annual conference on campus on Thursday 11th October and Friday 12th October, 2012. Attendance at the conference is limited to approximately 100 people and invitations to attend are keenly sought by both academics and practitioners.
Past keynote conferences at the conference include Viral Acharya, Nichola Barberis, Stephen Brown, Harrison Hong and Dimitri Vayanos with additional speakers being drawn from local and other overseas universities.
TOPICS: The theme of the 2012 conference is on the need for regulation in capital markets. We welcome proposals for papers to be presented at the 2012 conference on any topic that relates to dysfunctionality in capital markets. However, we would particularly welcome papers on topics that directly relate to the theme including:
- Market failure in capital markets and in the services provided by financial institutions
- The extent to which regulation provides the solution
- What types of regulation works best
- Remuneration in the financial services industry
- Transaction taxes
As in previous years we are particularly seeking proposals based on papers that at this time are either the germ of an idea or are in an embryonic stage of their development.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: The Paul Woolley Centre will meet the costs of attending and participating at the conference. In addition, a success fee of $500 will be paid to presenters who provide a copy of their final paper and of their PowerPoint slides by the due date. Finally, prizes (yet to be determined) will be awarded to the three papers judged to be the best presented at the conference.
