The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is now accepting submissions for the fifth CFPB Research Conference on Consumer Finance, which will be held May 6-7, 2021. Conference location is to be determined but will be either virtual or in-person at Catholic University in Washington, DC.
For this year’s conference, we especially encourage submissions regarding the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on consumer financial outcomes, as well as research on racial disparities in access to credit, behaviors, and outcomes.
You can find more details about the event in the attached Call for Papers. Authors may submit complete papers or detailed abstracts that include preliminary results. All submissions should be sent in electronic PDF format to CFPB_ResearchConference@cfpb.gov by Monday, Jan. 11, 2021.
