We intend to offer a hybrid event. The physical meeting will take place in the Deutsche Bundesbank Training Centre in Eltville am Rhein. The event is sponsored by the EABCN and Deutsche Bundesbank. Travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed for academic participants, potentially subject to a cap. If required due to the evolution of the pandemic, the conference will become an online event. Information on this conference is also available on the websites of EABCN and Deutsche Bundesbank.
