DC Fintech Week

Call For Papers

Every year DC Fintech Week convenes what is widely regarded as one of the most important financial technology policy forums in the United States, and a critical part of our work is sharing the best and brightest research from around the world with our audience.

With that in mind, we are delighted to announce once again our annual call for papers, and welcome submissions of 10,000 words or less from academics, experts from the government, non-profits, and industry that significantly advance a rigorous or new understanding of emerging financial technologies and/or the policy issues they raise.  Three papers will be chosen for our programming, and author segments will be filmed for our conference at Fannie Mae’s state of the art headquarters and live streamed.  A select few will also be shared on the conference website, and highlighted for the thousands of regulators, technologists and thought leaders in the DC Fintech Week community.

Possible agenda/paper topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Generative AI
  • Ordinals and Layer 2 Blockchain Applications
  • Compliance and De-Fi
  • The Community Reinvestment Act in a Digital Economy
  • Central Bank Digital Currencies
  • Banks and Fintech (Third Party) Relationships
  • Smart Contracts and Financial Inclusion
  • MDIs, CDFIs and the Digital Economy
  • Fintech, Crypto and National (In)security

We have a preference for short pieces most able to be digested by a broad audience and that introduce novel or meaningful ideas in helpful ways. Please submit your papers to dcfintechweekpapers@gmail.com. 

The deadline for submitting a paper is September 4, 2023.  Papers should be unpublished or published in no more than the last year.
