The Bank of Canada will host an in-person workshop on Payments and Securities Settlement Data and Information at its Ottawa Head Office on July 27 and 28, 2023.
This workshop, organised in partnership with Payments Canada and the Deutsche Bundesbank, aims to foster discussions between academics and policymakers on issues related to the generation, governance and use of payments and securities settlement information.
About the workshop
Topics of interest for the workshop include:
- Architecture and governance of information produced by payments activity (e.g., digital privacy, decentralized ledger technology and integration with CBDC, stablecoins and tokenized assets)
- Open banking and the role of payments information in promoting competition and financial inclusion
- Insights from payments and securities settlement data sets (in particular, from novel data sets on cross-border transactions, cryptocurrencies, fintech, and big data)
- Value added by payments data for monitoring and analysis (for example, in forecasting macroeconomic variables, and for developing early-warning indicators of cyber-risk or financial stress)
This workshop is expected to be an in-person event; however, the format may be suitably adjusted based on the prevailing guidance of public health authorities closer to the event date.
Limited travel support is available for academic speakers at the workshop.
