Conference on Endogenous Financial Networks and Equilibrium Dynamics: Addressing Challenges of Financial Stability and Monetary Policy

The Banque de France and The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland are organizing an international conference entitled Endogenous Financial Networks and Equilibrium Dynamics: Addressing Challenges of Financial Stability and Monetary Policy to be held in the conference hall of Banque de France in Paris July 9 and 10, 2015.

The conference aims to create a forum for discussion amongst researchers on questions related to theoretical and empirical studies of interactions of strategic behavior, network structure, and uncertainty in the emergence of equilibrium financial network dynamics with applications to monetary policy and financial stability. Potential research topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Modeling endogenous network dynamics
  • Stability of financial networks
  • Stable and efficient network structures
  • Econometric tools for analysis of dynamic networks
  • Interrelation between network dynamics and transmission of monetary policy
  • Issues related to the dynamics of information transmission through dynamic networks

The conference program will include both invited papers and contributed papers selected by the program committee from the submissions received.

Paper submission: Interested authors should submit an extended, detailed abstract or, preferably, a complete paper in PDF format to e-mail address: by April 15th, 2015.

Program Committee: Ben Craig (Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland), Jean-Stéphane Mesonnier (Banque de France), Frank Page (Systemic Risk Center, London School of Economics and Indiana University), Dilyara Salakhova (Banque de France)
