Frankfurt am Main, 21-22 September 2017
Many countries have seen low inflation in recent years, and both structural and cyclical factors seem to have contributed to this. The aim of the conference is to enhance our understanding of the drivers and dynamics of inflation and of inflation expectations, to draw conclusions from the most recent low inflation environment as well as from earlier episodes, and to discuss lessons for the future. The conference is intended to provide a forum for discussing innovative research and to facilitate exchanges of views between researchers and policymakers.
Submission Deadline: 31 May 2017

10 July 2017, Budapest
In the recent years, policymakers have made significant progress in applying macroprudential instruments, particularly in the banking sector. This invites us to evaluate the effectiveness of macroprudential policies and how the different tools designed to mitigate systemic risks interact with each other. Strong interlinkages between European economies and cross-border banking groups mean that particular care must be taken in the implementation of macroprudential measures. In this complex institutional and legal set-up one of the key challenges is to develop a holistic assessment of the macroprudential stance. This requires both an understanding of whether an instrument is appropriate with respect to a particular systemic risk and an understanding of how the macroprudential instruments applied interact with each other. With the objective of enhancing its assessment of macroprudential policies, the Macroprudential Policy Group (MPPG) of the European Central Bank’s Financial Stability Committee (FSC) is organising its second research workshop entitled “Macroprudential policies: effectiveness and interactions”, to be held in Budapest on 10 July 2017 and hosted by the Magyar Nemzeti Bank.
The workshop aims to facilitate a dialogue between policymakers and researchers in order to better assess the adequacy of macroprudential policies. The workshop will review empirical results, as well as state-of-the-art models and tools currently being developed in academia and policy institutions for the assessment of macroprudential policies. The review is intended to shed further light on possible complementarities, interactions and spillover effects created by the application of macroprudential measures.
Submission deadline: 18:00 CET on 19 May 2017
