The Paul Woolley Centre for the Study of Capital Market Dysfunctionality at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) was established during 2006 as the result of an on-going generous grant made by Dr. Paul Woolley (ex-Chairman, GMO Europe). Other Centres are located at the London School of Economics and Toulouse University. The UTS Centre is to hold its 7th annual conference on campus on Thursday 9th October and Friday 10th October, 2014. Attendance at the conference is limited to approximately 100 people and invitations to attend are keenly sought by both academics, practitioners and policy makers.

Patrick Bolton (Columbia University) will be one of the keynote speakers at the 2014 conference and we are still finalising others. Past keynote speakers have included Viral Acharya, Nicholas Barberis, Stephen Brown, Will Goetzmann Harrison Hong, Gur Huberman and Dimitri Vayanos.

FOCUS: The theme of the 2014 conference will be A Retrospective on Capital Market Dysfunctionality: Where do we go from here? We welcome proposals for papers to be presented at the 2014 conference on any topic that relates to dysfunctionality in capital markets. However, we would particularly welcome papers on topics that directly relate to:
- The importance of macroprudential and microprudential policy
- Variants of the Volcker Rule: The case for two banks
- Does size equate with quality in financial markets?
- A comparative study of financial regulation across countries
- Do we have market failure in financial markets?
- What policies do we need to pursue to make financial markets more effective?
- The role, objectives, and performance of financial regulation

As in previous years we are particularly seeking proposals based on research projects that at this time are either the germ of an idea or are in an embryonic stage of their development. There will be a seven month gap between the acceptance of a paper and the required time for the submission of the paper.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: For those presenting papers, the Paul Woolley Centre will substantively meet the costs of attending and participating at the conference. In addition, a success fee of $500 will be paid to presenters who provide a copy of their final paper and of their PowerPoint slides by the due dates. Finally, cash prizes of either $1,000 or $500 will be awarded to the three papers judged to be the best of those presented at the conference.
