Open Submission Deadline: January 21, 2022

The International Banking, Economics, and Finance Association (IBEFA) will hold its next Summer Meeting in Portland, Oregon, in conjunction with the 97th Annual Western Economic Association International Conference, Wednesday–Sunday, June 29–July 3, 2022 at the Hilton Portland Downtown and The Duniway. 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.

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.


You can submit a paper after registering at the conference planning website: (, which can also be reached via the heading “Call for Papers – WEAI” at the IBEFA website ( If you experience any submission difficulty, please contact Niki Maas ( We aim to inform authors of accepted papers by March 1, 2022.
