3RD ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON MARKET STRUCTURE

AND MARKET INTEGRITY

 

November 10th, 2008

Le Meridian King Edward Hotel,

Toronto, Ontario Canada

 

BEST PAPER PRIZE: $10,000.00

 

 

Regulators in Canada, the U.S. and Europe are addressing

critical market structure and market integrity issues at a

time when markets, and the entities that have traditionally

regulated them, are experiencing significant change.

Exchanges are merging, new trading markets are being

launched in Canada and around the world, and the self-

regulatory landscape is evolving with the creation of FINRA

and the proposed merger of the Investment Dealers

Association and Market Regulation Services.

 

The DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University and

Market Regulation Services Inc. are sponsoring a one-day

conference in Toronto, Canada on November 10, 2008 to

explore these and other current issues relating to market

structure and market integrity.

 

The conference will bring together leading international

academic researchers, regulators, industry professionals

and students to explore with their peers current issues,

trends, challenges and opportunities in market structure

and market integrity issues.

 

 

TOPICS:

 

The organizers invite submissions addressing any of the

following, or related, topics:

 

- The future of SRO regulation - how will the continuing

evolution of exchange ownership structures and

consolidation among markets affect the traditional models

of market integrity regulation?

- The regulation of short sales - what has been the impact

of the elimination of the tick test in the U.S.? Will

current regulatory initiatives address issues like double

voting?

- Investment research - what impact with the unbundling of

research and execution services have? How is research

being valued in the marketplace? How has the analyst

settlement changed the landscape?

- Best execution - will there be a harmonized and workable

definition in Canada, the U.S. and the UK?

- Trade-throughs - is there an empirical case for trade-

through rules? What has been the impact of their

implementation under Reg NMS? What direction will

Canadian regulators take?

- Access fees and market data - what can other

jurisdictions learn from the U.S. debate? Do Canadian

regulators need to address access fees and market data

arrangements?

- Debt and derivatives markets - how are market structure

and market integrity debates playing out in debt markets?

What explains existing levels of liquidity in Canada?

 

In addition to these themes, papers addressing other areas

of market structure and market integrity research are

welcomed. Papers may be conceptual, theoretical,

empirical, experimental or case studies, and will be

reviewed on a blind basis by members of the program

committee.

 

Authors of accepted papers will be responsible for paying

their own travel and accommodation expenses.

 

 

BEST PAPER AWARD - $10,000.00:

 

The program committee will select one paper presented at

the conference for a Best Paper Award of CDN$10,000.00

 

SPECIAL ISSUE -

Review of Quantitative Finance and Accounting:

 

Papers accepted for the conference are eligible for the

possible publication in a special issue of the Review of

Quantitative Finance and Accounting. In your submission,

LAMFALUSSY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

 

CALL FOR PROJECTS

 

 

The European Central Bank (ECB) is seeking applications from

promising young researchers for five Lamfalussy Fellowships

in 2008. The Lamfalussy Fellows programme was launched in

2003 in the context of the ECB-CFS Research Network on

"Capital Markets and Financial Integration in Europe". It is

aimed at promoting high-quality research on the structure,

integration and performance of the European financial system

(see www.eu-financial-system.org for further

information). The programme is named after Baron Alexandre

Lamfalussy, the first President of the European Monetary

Institute. Each fellowship is endowed with an honorarium of

Euro 10,000.

 

 

RESEARCH PROJECTS:

 

The successful candidates will be required to write a

research paper during 2008 on one of the Network's priority

areas, namely:

 

(1) Financial systems as risk managers and risk

distributors;

(2) Integration and development of retail financial services

and the promotion of innovative firms;

(3) Financial modernization, governance, and the integration

of the European financial system in global capital

markets.

 

A short description of these research topics can be found on

page 10 of the ECB Research Bulletin, No 6, June 2007, available

report entitled "Research Network on Capital Markets and

Financial Integration in Europe: Results and Experience after

Two Years", ECB and CFS, 2004 (available at:

www.eu-financial-system.org/report2004en.pdf).

Lamfalussy Fellows are expected to present their papers at

the Network's workshops and conferences and ultimately to

publish them in leading refereed journals. Information about

previous and current Fellows can be obtained from the

Network's website:

 

www.eu-financial-system.org/index.php

CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY

 

Economic Science Institute (ESI)

 

Faculty Position in Economics

 

 

Chapman University and the Economic Science Institute (ESI)

at Chapman University seeks a tenure-track, full professor in

Economics for Fall 2008.

 

 

ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY:

 

Chapman University is a comprehensive, liberal arts based

university in Orange County of Southern California. The

Economics Science Institute at Chapman University begins full

operation in the Fall of 2008 with five professors including

John Dickhaut, Dave Porter, Steve Rassenti, Vernon Smith, and

Bart Wilson. When staffing is complete, we will have 7 full

time faculty, 2 visiting professors, 2 post docs, a research

project manager, and two professional programmers. We expect

to be involved with the further development of departments in

the George L. Argyros School of Business and Economics

including accounting, economics and finance as well as other

departments across the campus.

 

 

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT:

 

ESI offers a unique opportunity for personal growth. Our

newly designed and constructed facilities will enable us to

continually sponsor visits for selected affiliated faculty to

form dialogues with existing researchers (and each other) at

Chapman. In all we are planning to have up to 100 affiliated

faculty. We will also offer large conferences and numerous

small spontaneous conferences to deal with emerging new ideas

and designs. We will have 2 laboratories located in the heart

of our beautiful campus, manned with extensive programming

support. Our facilities, staff, faculty and visitors, along

with a subject pool drawn from the greater Orange County

area, will provide a critical mechanism for reflecting on and

evaluating the major economic claims that can emerge in our

field.

 

The ESI consists of three broad sections of research and

teaching, each of which employs experimental economics:

Economic Systems Design, Neuroeconomics, and Economic Theory.

ESI is international in scope and interdisciplinary in the

reach of its content involving accounting, economics,

finance, MIS, engineering, psychology, neuroscience, computer

science and philosophy.

 

 

JOB DESCRIPTION:

 

The Chapman administration is committed to the idea that as

an Institute we not be an isolated unit but promote active

integration with other departments both from Chapman and

elsewhere. We are currently developing departmental liaisons

and possible associate and affiliate appointments for local

and international scholars.

 

In addition to the present full professor position advertised

here, in the coming months we plan to announce more positions

associated with ESI as well as the rest of the university.

We welcome applications from experimental economists and

related areas such as computational economics, the theory of

auctions, agent based modeling, economic systems,

evolutionary psychology, and economic history. We are open in

specifying fields because we believe that important sources

of inspiration in the future as in our own past are not

predictable. We simply seek the best people available to join

us in this incredible opportunity to explore economic science

and create a world class forum for the exchange of ideas at

Chapman.

 

 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE:

 

Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and letters of

reference (by electronic submission if possible) to:

 

CONTACT: Daniele C. Struppa, PhD

Chancellor

Chapman University

One University Drive

Orange, CA 92866
