Call for Papers: 5th RiskLab Finland, Bank of Finland and European Systemic Risk Board Joint Conference on Systemic Risk Analytics

Submission deadline: 28 February 2019

Recent waves of financial instability have sparked an interest in analytics for systemic risk measurement. This fifth annual 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, engineering, 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 themes:

• Using systemic risk analytics to support macroprudential policy and regulation
• Analysing emerging risks from interconnectedness of the financial system
• Use of big data and artificial intelligence for systemic risk analytics
• Identifying risks from market-based finance
• Risks and opportunities stemming from disruptive innovations in financial technology (FinTech)

Academic papers to be considered for presentation at the conference and workshop should be submitted via online form by 28 February: Accepted paper presenters will be notified in due course, as well as the format of the presentations; there will be both oral and poster presentations in the conference.

The conference will take place on 23–24 May 2019 at the Bank of Finland premises in Helsinki. The conference includes keynotes, presentations and poster sessions. The conference is accompanied with a social event for speakers on 23 May, taking place at the Bank of Finland Villa.

We welcome academics and experts of the conference topics to participate in the conference. Participation requires pre-registration. There is no registration fee. However, participants are expected to pay their expenses for travel and accommodation. Registration will open later in the spring. More information:
