    This year’s conference will include the following special sessions:

    Deutsche Bundesbank Session on Banking Supervision & Regulation:
    Topics to be addressed in this dedicated session include the linkages between bank and non-bank financial intermediaries, credit, sovereign and ESG risk, deposit stability and liquidity risk, interest rate risk and asset/liability management, stress testing and risk models, systemic risk and financial stability, as well as big data and machine learning in financial regulation.

    VR-Bank eG – Region Aachen Session on Household Finance and Retail Banking:
    This dedicated session centers around research related to the financial decision-making of private households. The topics covered include consumer behavior in retail banking, financial inclusion, literacy, and accessibility, technological inno-vations in personal finance, household expectations regarding economic issues, household consumption and saving behavior, as well as behavioral economics in household finance.

    Session on Stochastic Finance and Statistics:
    The dynamic nature of financial markets and the inherent yet changing risks, ranging from systemic to asset-specific risks, require reliable and sophisticated methods to support the management of risk exposures and mitigation of financial risks. Therefore, this session is dedicated to exploring how one can measure, detect, surveil, and infer changes in the stochastic structure of financial data and risks.

    Session on Behavioral and Experimental Finance:
    Behavioral perspectives are now being integrated into various fields to enhance our understanding of decision-making and market outcomes. Experiments have become a popular method for causally studying these behavioral questions. This session aims to bring together work from all fields of finance where research is conducted with a behavioral per-spective and/or through experimental methods. The goal is to better understand when behavioral approaches are nec-essary to accurately describe behavior and when such descriptions can be based on standard assumptions.

    Early bird registration for conference participation is from May 1 to July 31, 2024. Late registration starts September 1 and is available until September 20, 2024.
    We are looking forward to an interesting conference and to welcoming you to Aachen!

  • Call for Papers: Generative AI in Finance 8. Februar 2024 Geschrieben von Annika Flick

    Generative AI in Finance

    The aim of the special issue is to feature articles at the forefront of Generative AI research across a broad spectrum of interest including, but not limited to, corporate finance, fintech, digital finance, asset pricing, financial stability, banking, risk management, portfolio management, behavioral finance, personal finance, and real estate — all within the context of viable existing or potential future applications of Generative AI.

    Guest editors:

    Carol Alexander, University of Sussex

    Lars Hornuf, TU Dresden

    Denis Schweizer, Concordia University

    Special issue information:

    This Special Issue seeks to gather together a set of timely and top-tier research papers about the utilization of generative artificial intelligence (AI) in finance. „Generative AI“ pertains to computational methods that have the ability to use public and/or private data to create apparently novel and meaningful materials in the form of text, images, audio files and computer code. This rapidly evolving field presents both challenges and prospects for the financial and banking sectors. Submissions should enhance the understanding of viable existing and potential forthcoming applications of Generative AI in Finance. Two Workshops—in Dresden and Montreal—aim to provide authors with valuable insights from the editorial team prior to submission, and after submission those which are not desk rejected will be provided with constructive referee feedback in an expedited and well-organized review process.

    Generative Pre-Trained Transformers (GPT) hold significant promise in the realm of financial research (Cook et al. 2023; Feuerriegel et al. 2023; Pelster and Val 2023). For example, Jiang et al. (2023) claim that they can forecast financial asset prices by extracting contextualized representations of news text on which they employ cutting-edge, large-scale language models. Their findings indicate that information from newswires becomes integrated into prices only after an inefficient delay period (which corresponds to the constraints of arbitrage opportunities) but that this very delay can be leveraged through real-time trading strategies. In a similar vein, Fieberg et al. (2023) extract financial advice from GPT-4 and show that it can provide suitable financial advice for retail investors, by suggesting specific investment portfolios that reflect an investor’s individual circumstances such as risk tolerance, risk capacity, and sustainability preference. And Jha et al. (2023) report that investment scores generated by ChatGPT applied to conference call transcripts are strongly predictive of a companies’ future capital expenditures. However, high-quality research on the application of Generative AI to resolve practical problems in financial markets is only just starting to emerge.

    The aim of the special issue is to feature articles at the forefront of Generative AI research across a broad spectrum of interest including, but not limited to, corporate finance, fintech, digital finance, asset pricing, financial stability, banking, risk management, portfolio management, behavioral finance, personal finance, and real estate — all within the context of viable existing or potential future applications of Generative AI.

    Manuscript submission information:

    The submission system will be open from April 1, 2024. When submitting your manuscript to Editorial Manager, please select the article type “VSI: GenAI in Finance”. Please submit your manuscript before the submission deadline on January 31, 2025.

    All submissions deemed suitable to be sent for peer review will be double-blind reviewed by independent reviewers. If your manuscript is accepted it will go into production immediately and will be simultaneously published in the current regular issue and pulled into the online Special Issue. Articles from this Special Issue will appear in different regular issues of the journal, though they will be clearly marked and branded as Special Issue articles.
