KU School of Business to sponsor post-crisis banking conference in Amsterdam

More Information

LAWRENCE — The University of Kansas School of Business will have a prominent role at an international conference on the new realities of global finance.

The KU School of Business will co-sponsor the Post-Crisis Banking Conference on June 28-29 at the Dutch Central Bank in Amsterdam. The international conference is designed to showcase research on the crisis-induced changes in financial markets and practices, regulatory responses to the crisis, and how these changes will shape banking in the future.

KU will be represented by Bob DeYoung, the Capitol Federal Professor in Financial Markets and Institutions at KU and an expert in financial markets, commercial bank performance and regulation.
“The global financial crisis has caused us to rethink many issues in banking,” DeYoung said. “In many ways, the whole system has been turned upside down, leaving us to figure out how, why and where to go from here.”

The conference is sponsored jointly by the Dutch Central Bank, the European Banking Center at Tilburg University, and the KU School of Business. Conference papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, of which DeYoung is a co-editor. See conference details online.

In addition to his duties at KU and as co-editor of the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, DeYoung is also the President of the Southern Finance Association; a Research Program Coordinator at the FDIC's Center for Financial Research; a visiting lecturer at the University of Limoges in France; and an Associate Editor at the Journal of Financial Services Research, the Journal of Economics and Business, and the Journal of Financial Stability.

The University of Kansas is a major comprehensive research and teaching university. University Relations is the central public relations office for KU's Lawrence campus.
