International Conferences on Sovereign Bond Markets

Center for Financial Research at Waseda University (Tokyo, Japan), Center on Sustainable Architecture for Finance in Europe (SAFE) at Goethe University Frankfurt (Frankfurt, Germany) and NYU Stern Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions (New York, US) are co-sponsors of three conferences to be held respectively in Tokyo, Frankfurt am Main, and New York in the next two years.

The participation of speakers such as prominent academics, industry experts as well as senior officials/researchers from the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve will provide an opportunity for participants engaged in research, investment/trading and policymaking at the forefront of this area to discuss both the causes and implications of recent events in sovereign bond markets and may, in turn, suggest fruitful directions for future research. The conferences are organized under the auspices of the CREDIT Network (Venice, Italy) and SYRTO project and would be dedicated to various aspects of sovereign bond markets.

THE SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE for the Tokyo Conference consists of: Robert F. Engle (NYU Stern), Jun Uno (Waseda University), Monica Billio (University of Venice), Ester Faia (SAFE - Goethe University Frankfurt), Toshinao Yoshiba (BOJ), Simone Manganelli (ECB), Michael Fleming (NY FED).
