THE FRONTIERS OF NEW RISKS: AI, DIGITAL AND SUSTAINABILITY TRANSITIONS

GRETA Associati (Venice, Italy), CRIF (Bologna, Italy), European Datawarehouse (Frankfurt am Main, Germany), European Investment Fund (Luxembourg), Intesa Sanpaolo (Milan, Italy) and Modefinance (Trieste, Italy) are partners in organasing a Conference to be held in Venice on October 3-4, 2024.

The C.r.e.d.i.t. 2024 conference will bring together academics, practitioners and PhD students working in various areas of financial and socio-economic risk with the aim of creating a unique opportunity for participants to discuss research progress and policy as well as industry-relevant insights and directions for future research.

The conference, organised under the auspices of the Department of Economics and VERA - Venice centre in Economic and Risk Analytics for public policies (Ca’ Foscari University of Venice), ABI - Italian Banking AssociationAIAF - Associazione Italiana per l'Analisi Finanziaria and AIFIRM - Associazione Italiana Financial Industry Risk Managers, is the twenty-third of a series dedicated to various aspects of credit risk.

 

Sustainability necessarily involves the adaptation of today’s business model to the dynamic nature of the current digitalised environments. Corporations need to make sure that resources, especially technology, are being used responsibly and efficiently to improve the lives of the present generations and future generations as well as strengthen their relationships with the environment as to solve sustainability-related problems such as poverty, environmental degradation, pollution and inequality.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to address these societal problems including sustainability. The climate crisis and the degradation of the physical environment are complex problems that require the most innovative and advanced solutions. The real value of AI hence lies in its ability to facilitate and foster environmental and social governance, rather just as a tool to reduce pollution, poverty and resource depletion.
In the age of AI, societies depend on big data, social media, knowledge management and data science to survive and achieve these sustainability goals. AI has the potential to reshape not only finance and industry but also the whole society. There is need to understand opportunities and challenges as to properly manage all relevant risks.

  

 

The final program will include both submitted and invited papers. Acceptances received so far from invited speakers include Patrick Bolton (Imperial College London), Marie Briere (Amundi Investment Institute, Paris),  Marcin Kacperczyk (Imperial College London), and Roberto Rigobon (MIT Sloan School of Management, Cambridge). The Conference will also include panel discussions on the major issues at stake with the views of researchers', practitioners' and policy makers.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The organisers encourage submissions on any topic within the overall theme of the conference, with attention to the use of AI to assess the sustainability impact of finance (i.e. exploiting AI techniques or Big Data to bridge primary information gaps and proxy the sustainability impact) and on how climate and digital risks may interact (i.e. climate denial, social media and social media strategies including deepfakes).

Please indicate to whom correspondence should be addressed. Decisions regarding acceptance will be made by July 10, 2024.
