Papers will address conditions where investors are willing to pay governments to take on debt because of negative interest rates, spill-overs from quantitative easing in industrialized countries on emerging markets, impact of quantitative easing on sovereign bond market liquidity, and sovereign bond market liquidity in emerging countries, especially in Asia. The Conference also features a panel discussion (with former Central Bank Governors from the region) on major outstanding issues in sovereign bond markets, and fiscal and monetary policy making.

Call For Papers ECB Workshop on Money Markets, Monetary Policy

Call For Papers
ECB Workshop on Money Markets, Monetary Policy Implementation and Central Bank Balance Sheets

6-7 November 2017, Main Building, European Central Bank

Submission Deadline For Papers: 31 July 2017

PURPOSE: Properly-functioning money markets are critical to monetary policy transmission. Money markets, including repo markets, have been affected by the financial and sovereign debt crisis, by regulatory reforms and policies and by changes in the financial market environment, infrastructures and innovation. In response to the crisis, the ECB and other central banks have taken non-standard measures: sizeable asset purchase programmes, more flexible access to liquidity through wider collateral eligibility and expanded refinancing operations as well as negative interest rates. At the same time, central banks must consider the impact of their measures on market functioning and how they affect monetary normalisation in a post-crisis environment. The workshop will bring together central bankers, academics and market practitioners to discuss the key developments in money markets, monetary policy implementation and central bank operational frameworks.

TOPICS: Submissions are welcome on all topics relating to the aforementioned areas, in particular:
– structural changes in money markets (including repo markets) and their implications for monetary policy implementation;
– the evolution of central bank balance sheets and its impact on their role in monetary policy implementation and on money markets (including money market liquidity);
– the impact of regulatory reforms on money markets (including securities financing transactions) and their implications for monetary policy implementation;
– the influence of structural changes in money markets on the optimal design of the monetary policy implementation framework and the future prospects for money markets in the light of new thinking on the subject;
– the role of central bank collateral frameworks in money markets (including repo markets) and money market liquidity;
– the transmission of monetary policy through money markets;
– the measurement of market fragmentation in money markets and its implications for monetary policy implementation;
– the potential implications of issuing digital central bank currency to non-banks.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Papers should be submitted in portable document format (PDF) to MMWorkshop@ecb.europa.eu by 31 July 2017. The authors of accepted papers will be notified by the end of August 2017.

ORGANISATIONAL INFORMATION: Attendance at the workshop is by invitation only. The workshop will start on the morning of Monday, 6 November 2017 and end at noon on Tuesday, 7 November 2017. A dinner is planned for the evening of the first day.

EXPENSES: Academic speakers and discussants will be reimbursed for their travel and accommodation costs.

CONFERENCE ORGANISERS: Fabian Eser (ECB/Monetary Policy Strategy), Kerstin Junius (ECB/Market Operations Analysis), Bernd Schwaab (ECB/Financial Research), and Olivier Vergote (ECB/Money Market and Liquidity).

Conference Announcement and Call for Papers
Emerging Trends in Entrepreneurial Finance and Special Issue of Venture Capital: An International Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance

June 1st – 2nd, 2017, Stevens Institute of Technology School of Business, Hoboken, NJ (USA)

The School of Business at Stevens Institute of Technology in association with the Stevens Venture Center is delighted to host the International Conference “Emerging Trends in Entrepreneurial Finance”, June 1st – 2nd , 2017 at the Lawrence T. Babbio Center, 525 River Street, Hoboken, NJ (USA).

RESEARCH PAPERS: Traditional venture capital is a major provider of financing to innovative new companies and a catalyst of growth. However, in the aftermath of the financial crisis new sources of financing have substantially pushed the envelope of financing sources available to new ventures. Business angels and angels groups, crowdfunding, incubators and accelerators and the disrupting advent of Fintech have massively widened the menu of funding channels creating a new eco-system for new ventures, with deep implications for both investors and entrepreneurs and ultimately for global growth.

The conference solicits submissions of high-quality, original papers that shed light on the ongoing transformation of startups financing, with a special emphasis on the role of Fintech as a major driver of change. Possible topics include, but are not restricted to:

1) Is there a pecking order in approaching investors by new entrepreneurs?
2) Are different sources of financing complements or substitutes?
3) Is the Fintech revolution transforming new venture financing?
4) Is the fundraising process for Fintech startups different?
5) What is the role of crowdfunding in the financing of new ventures?
6) What are the relationship between angel investors, angel groups and venture capitalist?
7) Are returns affected by the sources of financing?
8) Is regulation keeping up with this changing environment?

AWARDS: The “Pietro Giovannini” Memorial Prize in the amount of $ 1,500 will be awarded to the presenter of the best paper.
