The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host a research symposium on Systemic Risk and Stress Testing in Banking on March 21-22, 2022. The symposium is planned to be held in person but may be held virtually or in a hybrid format if necessary to accommodate restrictions on in-person participation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The symposium will provide a platform for interested academic and regulatory participants and experts in the field to meet and discuss research about the measurement and quantification of systemic risk and other emerging risks in the banking system. Areas of special interest include (but are not limited to):

We encourage the submission of preliminary work, and we will consider research projects that are directed toward academic or policy audiences for presentation. Any submitted papers must represent original and unpublished research. The conference schedule will allocate 45 minutes to each paper, including a presentation by the author, comments from a discussant, and questions from the audience.
