The Mortgage Market Research Conference: Call for Papers

The Mortgage Market Research Conference: Call for Papers
February 01, 2022 | Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia

Mortgages are the largest component of household debt, and the mortgage market influences many aspects of the economy, such as homeownership and wealth accumulation, inequality, real estate prices, household balance sheets and consumption, the structure of the financial sector, financial cycles and systemic risk, and the transmission of monetary policy and macroeconomic shocks. The mortgage market has also experienced many changes in recent years, including tighter regulation, the growth of nonbank and fintech lending, and mortgage forbearance and a refinancing wave induced by the pandemic.
The Mortgage Market Research Conference is a forum for the presentation and discussion of new academic research on topics related to mortgages and the mortgage market. The conference will primarily focus on the residential mortgage market, although research on commercial mortgages will also be considered.
The conference is jointly organized by the Philadelphia Fed Consumer Finance Institute, the Research Department, and the Supervision, Regulation, and Credit Department.

Paper Submission Procedure

Interested authors should submit a PDF version of their paper. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, February 1, 2022. There is no submission fee.

Authors of accepted papers will be notified by late February.

Conference Logistics

The conference will take place at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on Wednesday, May 11. Although we hope to see everyone in Philadelphia in the spring, a hybrid or virtual format will be used if conditions related to COVID-19 do not allow for an in-person event.
