Call For Papers
MIT Golub Center for Finance and Policy 4th Annual Conference – “Government Financial Products, Policies, and Institutions”

September 27-28, 2017, Cambridge, MA

Governments have profound effects on the allocation of investment capital and risk throughout the world. They operate some of the world’s largest financial institutions, including development and state-owned banks, public and government pension funds, government-sponsored enterprises, and agencies providing credit for education, agriculture, housing, trade, infrastructure and businesses. Their policies and the products they choose to offer are major determinants of the quality, availability and pricing of financial services to households and firms, and of the costs and risks borne by taxpayers.

TOPICS: MIT’s Golub Center for Finance and Policy is inviting paper submissions for its annual conference which will shed new light on these issues and institutions, or that evaluate policy proposals related to them. Suitable topics include but are not limited to: public retirement systems and policies; restructuring the secondary mortgage market in the U.S.; infrastructure finance; government accounting policies and credit subsidy measurement; student loans; development banking; contingent liabilities of governments; and product design.

The mission of the MIT Golub Center for Finance and Policy (GCFP) is to serve as a catalyst for innovative, cross-disciplinary and non-partisan research and educational initiatives that address the unique challenges facing governments in their role as financial institutions and as regulators of the financial system.

RESEARCH TRACKS: Each year the GCFP’s annual conference brings together academics, policy makers and practitioners to discuss research and new developments in a selected area related to one or more of the main research tracks of the Center:
– Evaluation and Management of Government Financial Institutions
– Regulation of Financial Markets and Institutions
– Measurement and Management of Risk

This year’s topic cuts across all three areas. Both empirical and theoretical papers are welcome.

FURTHER INFORMATION: For more information about the GCFP and its past conferences please visit:

DATES: There will be a late afternoon session, a conference dinner and keynote speaker on the evening of Wednesday, September 27, followed by a full day of conference events on Thursday, September 28.

EXPENSES: Travel (economy class round-trip) and accommodation expenses will be covered for presenters and discussants.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Please email a copy of your paper as a PDF to

DEADLINE: Deadline for submission of papers is 31 May 2017.

Policy-makers in all domains are facing increasing pressures to interact with citizens more efficiently, and make better decisions in the light of data flooding in all forms, sophisticated computing technologies, and analytics methods. The hierarchical structures of governments are also being challenged as these technologies equip individuals and informal networks with the necessary tools to better participate in public decision making processes, and have a societal impact at a much faster pace than ever before. The concepts and tools from artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), and now blockchain technologies are also likely to automate many services in the public sector, greatly increasing its efficiency but at the cost of potentially millions of jobs. ‘Smartification’ of people, devices, institutions, cities, and governments also brings constant, ubiquitous surveillance which, together with inference and recognition technologies, creates the potential to regulate human behaviour and may even threaten democracy. > > The third of the Data for Policy conference series highlights ‘Government by Algorithm?’ as its main theme, while also welcoming contributions from the broader Data Science and Policy discussions.

Haeundae is 1.5 km long, 30~50m wide, and spans an area of 58,400?. The white sand is rough and sticks easily to your skin. The sand of this beach is composed of sand that comes from Chuncheon Stream and shells that have been naturally eroded by the wind over time. Haeundae Beach is also famous for the various cultural events and festivals held throughout the year. > > ABOUT THE CONFERENCE CITY: > – Busan is Korea’s second largest city and the number 1 trading port. This geopolitically situated harbor city sits adjacent to the Korean Straits and Japan, bringing about an interchange of trade and tourism. This intercultural current has made Busan into the international metropolis it is today. Busan has hosted such international events as the 2002 14th Asian Games, the final match of the Korea/Japan World Cup, and since 1995 has annually hosted the Pusan International Film Festival. > – Sight-seeing in Busan (Pusan) can typically be classified into two groups: seashore and interior land sight-seeing. Seashore sightseeing includes such sights as the beach areas, islands, and Hae Ahn Park. Busan’s most charming tourist point is its beautiful sea vistas. The southeastern beach areas have amazing views of the fantastically shaped rocks and islands, which are a must see. The famous beaches of Haeundae, Gwangalli, and Songjeong are enjoyed by many. Boating, jet skies, and banana boats are just among a few of the water recreation activities visitors can take advantage of. Amnam Park, Igidae, and Haean Park offer views of nature’s masterpieces. The natural beauties of Busan can also be taken in by riding the cruise boats in the harbor. > > RELATED WEB PAGES ABOUT CONFERENCE SITE AND CITY: > – Haeundae in visitkorea: > – Haewundae in Busan city webpage: > – Busan tourism webpage: > – Haeundae in wikipedia: > – Busan in wikipedia: > > THE CONFERENCE IS ORGANIZED UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE: > – Korea Derivatives Association, > – Korea Exchange, > > Choi, Youngsoo, Ph.D. > President of Korea Derivatives Association > Department of Mathematics, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies > phone : ?82-31-330-4109, E-mail: > > Park, Jong Won, Ph.D. > Program Chair of the APAD2017 > School of Business Administration, University of Seoul > phone: 82-2-6490-2234, E-mail: > > FURTHER INFORMATION: For further information, contact Yoon, Sun-Joong, Ph.D. (APAD program director, Dongguk Business School, Dongguk University, phone: 82-2-2003-9923, > > top > > > ANNOUNCEMENTS AND JOB POSTINGS > If you wish to post a professional announcement or job listing, please contact for more information. > > HOW TO UNSUBSCRIBE > You can unsubscribe from these Jobs & Announcements emails by clicking here. > > You can change any of your other eJournal subscriptions in the following ways: > Log into SSRN User Headquarters at Click “Subscriptions” on the left side of your screen, click on the appropriate network name, and then uncheck “Professional Announcements and Job Postings” at the bottom of the page. > Email > Call 877-SSRNHelp (877.777.6435) in the United States, or +1 585 442 8170 outside of the United States.
