Call for papers: SNB-FRB-BIS High-Level Conference on Global Risk, Uncertainty, and Volatility

Zürich, 12-13 November 2019

The world faces profound economic, financial, and political uncertainties, but it is unclear to what extent these uncertainties are priced in financial markets and how they affect global economic developments.

To address some of these issues, the Swiss National Bank (SNB), the Division of International Finance of the Federal Reserve Board (FRB), and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) will jointly organize the second conference on Global Risk, Uncertainty, and Volatility, hosted by the SNB in Zurich.

We welcome submissions within the broad themes of uncertainty and its implications for asset markets and financial stability. We would welcome particularly theoretical or empirical contributions that address global financial markets. 

Some illustrative topics include:

  • The linkage between uncertainty and global financial markets
  • The transmission of uncertainty to the real economy and financial stability
  • How should policy making take account of uncertainty?
If you would like to submit a paper, please follow the instructions. The submission deadline is  15 June 2019.
