Please note that this conference will be postponed from its original dates in May until autumn 2020 as a result of measures taken to address the COVID-19 pandemic. New dates will be released later in the spring.
Even though the economic environment has been stable for a decade, we are still increasingly concerned about consistent financial instability. The development of artificial intelligence methods in finance poses new challenges and opportunities in our economic climate. This conference on systemic risk analytics will bring together the most recent advances in computational tools for systemic risk identification and assessment, and will look at future opportunities and threats presented by big data and artificial intelligence. In addition, the link between climate threats and economic policies will be investigated. The scope of models and techniques includes systemic risk and early-warning indicators, network and contagion analysis, macro stress-testing, optimal timing of macroprudential counter-measures as well as measures of coinciding systemic stress and systemically important financial institutions. A further aim of the conference is to adopt methods and techniques from other disciplines, such as computer science, engineering, biology and physics, which use computer-intensive approaches, novel data sources, visual representations and interactive interfaces, among other things.
The conference covers policy and practitioner-oriented research related to systemic risk measurement. We solicit contributions on a broad range of themes related to systemic risk analytics, particularly (but not limited to) the following:
The conference will take place on
11 and 12 May 2020 at the Bank of Finland in Helsinki. It will include keynotes, presentations and poster sessions. The conference is accompanied by a social event for speakers on 11 May, taking place at the Bank of Finland’s villa.
Academic papers to be considered for presentation at the conference and workshop should be submitted
by 15 March via this online form:
Accepted presenters will be notified in due course, and will be informed about the format of the presentations (there will be both oral and poster presentations at the conference).
We welcome academics and experts to participate in the conference. Participation requires pre-registration. There is no registration fee; however, participants are expected to cover their expenses for travel and accommodation. Registration will open in the spring.
