International Conference on
CREDIT ANALYSIS

CALL FOR PAPERS and ABSTRACTS
International Conference on
CREDIT ANALYSIS
(July 21-23, 2011, Rochester, Michigan)

Selected papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of the Journal of Credit Risk.

Aim:
The recent global financial crisis has exposed a weakness in credit analysis in the financial system. This conference is intended to expand the knowledge of credit analysis through discussion of existing models of analyzing credit risk and the encouragement of further development of such models.
The conference will include experts from both academia and industry talking on the subject of credit analysis and how processes for the evaluation of credit can be improved. While a significant portion of the conference will be related to such speakers and panel discussions that will be opened up to the floor, research papers on credit analysis are also being invited for presentation.
Attendance or participation for any portion of the conference is likely to be beneficial to all.

Research Papers and Abstracts Solicited:
Especially welcome are structural models designed to detect the capacity of debtors to make mandatory cash payments on their liabilities. However, reduced form statistical models that estimate the probability of bankruptcy are also welcome, particularly if they can be integrated with parameters that incorporate human judgment, such as with respect to forecasting. Methods of estimating the payoff on debts in default are also valuable, whether they are based on a fundamental analysis of the priority of claims in bankruptcy or draw exclusively on statistical relationships and agency credit ratings.
Also invaluable are any theoretical or empirical models that estimate the systematic risk of debts and the premium required for such systematic risk. Further work on analyzing the premium required for the illiquidity of individual debts is also important. Papers analyzing the effect of other factors on the required return on debts subject to default risk are also very welcome for this conference on credit analysis, including investigations into the premium yields required for call or prepayment risks.
