4th International Conference on Uncertainties and Financial Markets in the Asia-Pacific Countries
November 7-8, 2023, Beijing, China
Following very successful previous conferences on the theme of uncertainty and financial markets, Pacific-Basin Finance Journal (PBFJ) and Asia-Pacific Applied Economics Association will collaborate to host the fourth conference in November 2023. Post the 2007 global financial crisis, the world economy has experienced persistent uncertainties relating to both politics and economics. These uncertainties have been both domestic (such as those resulting from economic policy changes, and natural disasters) and global (such as those resulting from climate change, oil market instabilities, and geopolitical tensions/conflicts). These uncertainties have reached new heights following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a need to develop a robust understanding on how these types of uncertainties influence the Asia-Pacific financial markets.
The proposed 4th international conference welcomes papers focused on a clear finance research question that broadly consider, but are not limited to, the following issues:
· Measuring uncertainties (new methods/models)
· Understanding the relation between uncertainties and spillovers on markets
· Identifying channels/mechanisms through which uncertainties influence the financial system
· Evaluating how uncertainties are priced in the financial markets
· Understanding the moderating role of uncertainties in their influence on the financial markets
· Understanding transmission of uncertainties to the financial system
· Understanding role of financial intermediaries in the transmission of uncertainties
· Uncertainties and the evolution of financial cycles
· Technological innovation and uncertainties
· Uncertainties and volatility spillovers
· Sources of uncertainties
· Are uncertainties predictable?
· What type of information content uncertainties have for financial markets?
· Theoretical papers that predict a role for uncertainties in the overall financial system

Conference acceptance and PBFJ SI processes
All papers submitted to the PBFJ SI conference will be reviewed by the organizing committee. Papers selected for presentation at the conference will be invited for submission to a dedicated SI of PBFJ on the conference theme. Submitted papers will undergo the normal PBFJ review process and the best papers will be selected by the Guest Editor (Prof. Paresh Narayan) for the proposed SI.
In addition to this review process, all papers presented at the conference will have a discussant and it is expected that before papers are submitted for formal reviews at the PBFJ, authors would have undertaken revisions based on the discussant report.
Conference paper submission deadline
All papers (in complete draft form) should be submitted by October 10, 2023 at the following online submission link: https://www.apaea.com/conference-paper/add-conference-paper/55. A PDF version of the paper should also be emailed to the Guest Editor at email@example.com. Author(s) wishing to discuss potential research ideas on the theme are also encouraged to write to the Guest Editor.
All papers will be reviewed by the organizing committee and a decision will be conveyed to corresponding authors by October 20, 2023. Accepted papers will need to be registered by paying a fee of US$400. Details on how to register and other conference related matters will be sent to those whose papers are accepted.
