CFPB to Host First-Ever Research Conference May 7-8

paperwork-filesThe Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will host its first-ever Research Conference on Thursday, May 7, and Friday, May 8, at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, D.C.

High-quality consumer finance research will be the focus of the two-day conference, which will feature academic and government researchers presenting their research papers as well as five panel discussions.

"The goal of conference is to connect the core community of researchers and policymakers with the best research being conducted across the wide range of disciplines and approaches that can inform the topic of consumer finance," CFPB said on the conference website. "We hope that the conference is attended by a diverse audience from academia, government agencies, nonprofit agencies, and industry."

The first day of the conference will feature a presentation and discussion on recent publications from the CFPB's Office of Research, a panel discussion on Shocks and Consumer Well-Being moderated by Charles Romero of the CFPB, and a panel discussion on Consumer Learning and Behavior Change, moderated by Melissa Knoll of the CFPB.

The second day of the conference will include a panel discussion on Consumer Background, Knowledge, and Expectations on Financial Outcomes moderated by Lori Parcel of the CFPB, a panel discussion on Information and Consumer Decision-Making, moderated by Erik Durbin of the CFPB, and a panel discussion on Supply of Credit on Consumer Decision-Making, moderated by Darryl Getter of the Congressional Research Service.
