Call for Papers: Simulator Seminar

We invite you to submit your research work for consideration at the 22nd Simulator Seminar, taking place in Helsinki, in August 2024. Our seminar covers a wide range of subjects related to financial market infrastructures (FMIs) and their data driven or computational studies:  stress testing, liquidity studies, critical participants, new structures or payment instruments, payments behavior, ABM or early warning indicators. Priority will be given for studies utilizing the BoF-PSS3 or T2 Simulators, but other quantitative analyses of payment and securities settlement systems are appreciated as well.

This year the keynote speech will be given by Prof. Dr. Martin Brown on

The Dynamics of Retail Payment Markets and Consumer Adoption of Payment Instruments.
