Hosted By: Bank of EnglandWith: National Institiute of Economic and Social Research,Warwick University,Centre for Macroeconomics (CfM)
Organizers: Philippe Bracke, Wouter Den Haan, Roger E A Farmer, Roberto Pancrazi and Jagdish Tripathy
The National Institute of Economic and Social Research, Warwick University, Centre for Macroeconomics and the Bank of England are organising a conference on Economics and Psychology: New ways of thinking about economic policy to be held on July 9th and 10th 2018 at the Bank of England. The organising committee consists of Roger Farmer, Roberto Pancrazi, Philippe Bracke, Wouter Den Haan and Jagdish Tripathy.

We have confirmed opening remarks by Ben Broadbent (Deputy Governor of the Bank of England) and keynote speeches by Seppo Honkapohja (Aalto University School of Business and former Deputy Governor of the Bank of Finland) and Vítor Constâncio, (Deputy Governor of the European Central Bank). The conference dinner on July 9th will be hosted by Silvana Tenreyro, Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and member of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee.

The conference will last for two days and we envisage that it will consist of 12-14 papers with discussants. We are looking for high quality research papers that may help to guide monetary, and micro or macro prudential policy. Papers may be theoretical or empirical and preference will be given to papers that are imaginative and in an early stage of development.

Participants will be selected on the basis of papers or abstracts of about 500 words, with a strong preference for completed papers. The deadline for submissions is March 31st 2018. Authors chosen to present papers will be notified by April 27th, 2018. Final drafts of the papers will be due at NIESR on June 25th, 2018. The organisers will pay travel and hotel expenses for one author per paper as well as for discussants.

If you are interested in participating, please email your paper or abstract by March 31st to

16/07/2018 29th European Summer Symposium in Financial Markets (ESSFM) 2018, Gerzensee
Hosted By: Study Center GerzenseeSupported By: Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis
Organizers: Terrence Hendershott, Dmitry Livdan and Vikrant Vig
The 29th CEPR/Study Center Gerzensee European Summer Symposium in Financial Markets (ESSFM) will take place in Gerzensee from 16 to 27 July 2018. The Organising Committee for this symposium consists of: Terrence Hendershott (University of California, Berkeley), Dmitry Livdan (University of California, Berkeley) and Vikrant Vig (London Business School and CEPR). This call for papers invites you to express your interest in attending this symposium, or to submit a paper proposal in any area of financial economics and related fields.

The meeting will include daily seminars in the morning, in which participants present their work, as well as less formal evening seminars scheduled at the beginning of the Symposium. A substantial amount of time is reserved for independent work and collaborative research, which provides participants with a unique opportunity to interact and discuss each other's research.

In addition, four mornings will be devoted to 'focus sessions', each of which concentrates on some recent developments in corporate finance (week one: 16-20 July) and asset pricing (week two: 23-27 July). The focus sessions for the corporate finance week are organised by Patrick Bolton (Columbia Business School and CEPR) on the theme of "Political Economy" and by Dirk Jenter (London School of Economics and CEPR) on the theme of "Corporate Governance".

The focus sessions for the asset pricing week are organised by Hanno Lustig (Stanford) and Nicolae Garleanu (UC Berkeley). One of the confirmed themes will focus on "Heterogeneity, Inequality, and Asset Returns" featuring speakers Matthieu Gomez (Columbia University) and Stavros Panageas (UCLA). More names and themes are to be confirmed.

To foster the desired interaction, we ask participants to spend one working week at the Symposium. Committing to attend for only two or three days is not fair to the speakers, to all those who spared the time to attend, and especially to the many researchers whose applications were turned down.

A number of places at the symposium are specifically reserved for younger European scholars (based in Europe or overseas), who are especially encouraged to apply. Senior researchers are therefore requested to pass this information on to junior colleagues working in finance and related fields.

Food and accommodation (checking in on Sunday and out on Friday only) are provided free of charge to participants thanks to the generosity of the Study Center Gerzensee. Please note that additional nights are at the participants' own expense and that no meals (except for breakfast) are provided over the middle weekend. Space is allocated first to academic participants, but subject to the availability of rooms, spouses/partners can be accommodated at a charge to cover costs. There is only limited accommodation available for children, and this will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

There is limited travel funding available, but we encourage participants to use their own grants to cover such costs. Please indicate on your reply whether you will be able to cover your own travel costs, or whether you will require funding from CEPR (if there are insufficient funds to cover all travel expenses, we will attach priority to funding junior participants). If you are allocated travel funding, this will be covered according to CEPR travel guidelines (

How to apply
To respond, please visit: and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper or would be willing to act as a discussant. The deadline for replies is 6pm (GMT), Friday 6 April 2018. If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting, please contact Amanda Vincent-Rous, CEPR Events team at for assistance (with subject header "5689 - ESSFM 2018").

During the online submission process, you will also be asked to indicate which week you would like to attend and whether you would be interested in attending even if your paper was not selected. We also ask that you submit a link to your current CV.

The organisers will aim to notify successful applicants by the end of April 2018.
