The 2nd Financial Econometrics MeetingPost-Crisis Challenges (FEM-2021), jointly organized by the EDC Paris Business School and French Association of Financial Econometrics (FAFE), will take place on 01-02 July 2021 at the EDC Paris Business School, Paris, (France).

In the last twenty years, several periods of turmoil (the internet bubble, the subprime crisis, sovereign debt, Coronavirus, etc.) have shaped the financial and economic system. Economics and Financial spheres exhibit more uncertainty, many complexities, nonlinearity dynamic, chaotic characteristics, etc. The internet bubble, the financialization of commodities markets, and particularly the subprime crisis have led to several transformations in both financial and economic systems. The commodities markets lead to new lessons in terms of hedging, portfolio diversification, pricing, etc. The Subprime crisis leads to new regulatory policies such as Basle III in order to avoid these crises. It has influenced governance transformations at both macro and micro levels, as calls for more ethical and sustainable standards in finance and economic spheres have been growing since 2007. From the economic side, monetary policy has experienced a transition from conventional to unconventional frameworks in both industrialized and emerging economies, lower levels of short term interest rate as well as the long term interest. More recently, new forms of money have been introduced, such as virtual money (Bitcoin, among others), leading to a new bubble that might affect financial markets. More recently, the Coronavirus health crisis has plunged the world into a chaotic economic and financial situation. These recurrent crises lead to a high level of uncertainty. 

During these twenty years, the financial econometrics discipline has been developed substantially, especially with more approaches modeling complexity, nonlinearity, chaotic behavior, high-frequency data, big data, networks, etc. 

The current call for papers invites authors to submit proposals mobilizing differ-ent approaches to analyze the macro and micro effects of these changes on the financial and economic systems. Particularly, all contributions related to economic and finance mutations and the consequences in terms of uncertainty and risk management are welcome. 

This conference is organized by the EDC Paris Business School & French Association of Financial Econometrics (FAFE). We cordially invite academics, practitioners, and policymakers who address these issues to submit papers.
