We encourage submission of high-quality papers using theoretical, empirical, as well as experimental methods. Besides contributions to the general field of banking and finance, we especially welcome papers related to the development and implementation of macro-prudential policies; the interaction of such policies with monetary, micro-prudential, and economic policies; as well as methodological and applied ex-ante and ex-post policy evaluation studies. The suggestion of complete sessions on policy-relevant topics is also strongly encouraged. In that case, sessions should consist of 3-4 papers and include discussants.
