Call for Papers for Seventh Conference for Students and Young Researchers

Call for papers

The NBU and Kyiv School of Economics are inviting students and young researchers to participate in the Seventh Research Conference, which will take place on 24 May 2024. The traditional topic of the event is Banking Sector and Monetary Policy: Future Prospects. The conference will be held in a hybrid format: offline and online. 

The discussion will focus on the specifics of the banking sector’s operation, the pursuit of monetary policy, and efforts to ensure financial stability amid the war and during the post-war reconstruction.

The conference agenda also features a lecture by the event’s honorary speaker Alex Nikolsko-Rzhevskyy (Lehigh University) on the topic Charting the Future: The Crucial Role of Economic Research in Uncertain Times.

We are inviting students and young researchers to submit their papers on issues related to the general topic of the conference.

The topics may include (but are not limited to): 

  • macroeconomic aspects of monetary policy in wartime
  • effective regulation of the banking sector and ensuring financial stability in wartime
  • bank lending and post-war economic reconstruction
  • other topics in economics and finance.

How participants and winners will benefit from the conference 

Conference participants will be provided with the reviews of submitted papers, with advice on how to improve them. The finalists of the conference and their research advisors or supervisors will also receive diplomas from the NBU. 

The best papers will be recommended for publication in the journal Visnyk of the National Bank of Ukraine and handed over for peer reviews (in line with the journal’s publishing policy). If a paper receives a positive peer review, the NBU will provide free-of-charge editing, translation, and publication of the article. 

The winners will also be invited for a traineeship at the National Bank of Ukraine and will receive certificates that will allow them to opt for a course within the master’s programs in economics at Kyiv School of Economics.

In addition, authors of best papers and their research advisors or supervisors will be invited to the 13th Annual Research Conference Navigating the Changing Landscape: Central Banks in a New Normal, which will be held by central banks of Ukraine and Poland on 20–21 June 2024 in Kyiv in a hybrid format.
