9th MoFiR Workshop on Banking

Banco de Portugal and Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics, Lisbon, Portugal

4-5 June, 2020

After eight successful workshops in Ancona (2012, 2013, 2014, 2018), Kobe (2015), Chicago (2016, 2019) and London (2017) the Money and Finance Research Group (MoFiR), together with the Banco de Portugal and the Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics, are pleased to announce the next workshop will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on 4-5 June, 2020.

The organising committee of this small informal workshop invites submissions of high-quality theoretical and empirical research on financial intermediation. Scholars in the fields of banking and finance will meet to discuss current issues in banking, financial stability, and financial regulation, focusing on policy reforms for a stable global financial environment. The workshop will provide an opportunity for presentations and discussions about policy-relevant research in an informal and highly interactive environment.

The keynote speaker will be Murillo Campello (Cornell University and NBER)

This year the workshop will include an additional half-day (3 June, afternoon) at ISEG, Lisbon, on SME financing, with invited speakers.

Travel costs (airfare) for presenters and invited discussants will be reimbursed for an amount up to €500 for domestic travelers and €1,500 for overseas travelers. There is no conference fee, and all meals are included, but participants must cover their own accommodation costs.
