    The conference aims to bring together leading researchers to discuss recent developments in empirical banking research. The organising committee invites submissions of high-quality research papers on banking in Emerging Markets. Attention will be given in particular to: 1. The econometric analysis of increasingly rich micro-level data that are available ‘off-the-shelve’, such as from central banks, credit registries, and commercial data providers 2. The econometric analysis of tailor-made data from large-scale surveys of banks and their clients 3. The use of randomized controlled trials and framed field experiments with banks and their staff These three strands of the literature approach the banking “black box” in different ways: observing the bank and its behavior from the outside; opening up the box by asking CEOs, loan officers, and bank clients specific questions; and then further prising open the bank through (framed) field experiments. Potential topics of interest include but are not limited to: •The role of geographical and hierarchical distance in banking •Bank ownership and small business finance •The impact of lending technologies on bank-borrower information asymmetries •Banking, job creation, and financial inclusion •Corporate governance and bank efficiency and stability •Internal capital markets, FX lending, and financial stability •Behavioral finance and the banking firm Key-note speakers Atif Mian (Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, Princeton University) Antoinette Schoar (Michael Koerner '49 Professor of Entrepreneurial Finance, MIT)
