    MOTIVATION The recent financial crises triggered a wave of new regulatory initiatives with far reaching implications for the structure and the functioning of securities’ markets: (i) Financial Transaction Taxes planned in Europe may modify the geography and venues of security trading, (ii) New bans of short selling may alter market efficiency and integration and modify management practices and arbitrage trading, (iii) The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the European Market Infrastructure Legislation (EMIL) impose substantial new regulatory requirements on the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives. What is the impact of these new regulatory developments? TOPICS (include, but are not limited to:) - Crises episodes and the impact of regulatory responses on securities markets’ microstructure (e.g. opacity vs. transparency, OTC vs. regulated markets); - New regulatory requirements for high frequency traders. High frequency trading and its impact on market liquidity, efficiency and stability (e.g. “flash crashes”); - The Financial Transaction tax and its consequences for financial markets and the real economy; - EU’s Regulation (Nov 2012) on short selling and naked CDS positions and its impact; - The impact of new regulatory developments in OTC derivatives markets (e.g. central clearing, mandatory use of trade repositories and enhanced reporting requirements) on market transparency, liquidity, efficiency; - Systemic risk and OTC derivatives’ markets’ structure. Counterparty risk and margin requirements; - Central Counterparty Clearing houses’ (CCPs) competition, regulatory arbitrage and regulation harmonization; - Expected benefits and costs of moving to the Exchanged Traded Derivatives paradigm; SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Interested researchers are invited to submit theoretical or empirical research papers by October 15th, 2013 to: alessandro.fontana@unige.ch
