Call for Papers

IBEFA Summer Meeting

June 23–25, 2021

Open Submission Deadline: February 26, 2021

The International Banking, Economics, and Finance Association (IBEFA) will hold its next Summer Meeting as a virtual three-day event with 2 sessions each day, Wednesday--Friday, June 23-25, 2021. Members and non-members are equally encouraged to submit papers.

IBEFA seeks paper submissions that contribute to its goals of furthering the study of banking and financial systems around the world. 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 macroprudential policies; the interaction of such policies with monetary, microprudential, and economic policies; as well as methodological and applied ex-ante and ex-post policy evaluation studies.


You can submit a paper after registering at the conference planning website:, which can also be reached via the heading “Call for Papers – Summer” at the IBEFA website If you experience any submission difficulty, please contact Niki Maas We aim to inform authors of accepted papers by May 1, 2021.


There is no paper submission fee. However, at least one author from each accepted paper must be an IBEFA member as of May 1, 2021. Regular membership dues are US$100 and US$50 for students for one year. Authors of (provisionally) accepted papers, who are not members, will be given the opportunity to join before the program is finalized.

Feedback and active participation are crucial to the success of this meeting. Therefore, presenting authors are required to be willing to discuss a paper.
