International Conference on Payments and Securities Settlement: Data and Information

The Deutsche Bundesbank will host the International Conference on Payments and Securities Settlement: Data and Information in Eltville, Germany on July 4 and 5, 2024.

Organized in partnership with the Bank of Canada, this conference will bring together academic and central bank researchers, policymakers and practitioners to discuss the latest economic research focused on the developments, challenges and opportunities for payments and securities settlement and the data and information they generate.

Please direct all questions to the conference organizers by email.

About the conference

Economic analysis of payment and securities settlement systems has risen in importance as a topic for researchers, regulators and the rapidly expanding range of payment market participants. Moreover, innovations in technologies such as DLT-driven forms of settlement, as well as the introduction of new infrastructures and payment architecture has led to potential far-reaching impacts, which require greater understanding. Additionally, the significance of big data generated by and used in payment systems and its linkage to the real economy to gain competitive benefits has intensified. Issues related to the generation, governance and use of payments and securities settlement information have assumed first-order importance.

The conference will be chaired by Mr. Joachim Nagel, President of the Executive Board of Deutsche Bundesbank, Mr. Burkhard Balz, Member of the Executive Board and Mr. Julian Reischle, Head of the payments and settlement systems department.

Travel expenses

Participation at the conference is free of charge. Accommodation during the conference will be covered for participants and logistical support will be provided. Academic authors of accepted papers will receive travel expenditures.
