Conference papers

Further information

The conference will be held at the Hotel Schweizerhof in the mountain resort of Lenzerheide.

The program starts Monday morning at 08:00 and ends Wednesday at noon. Due to capacity constraints, preference will be given to participants who can stay for the whole duration of the conference. Participants should plan to arrive Sunday evening and leave Wednesday afternoon. A block-reservation has been made by the organisers at the Hotel Schweizerhof at very preferential rates. The European Banking Center (Tilburg University) and the Swiss National Bank will sponsor the opening reception and meals during the conference. There will be around ten papers and discussions, leaving ample time for reflection and outdoor activities. Besides skiing, Lenzerheide is a very attractive resort for winter-hiking, sledging or just relaxing.
