--Richard Berner, director of the Treasury's Office of Financial Research

 --Nellie Liang, director of the Office of Financial Stability Policy and Research at the Federal Reserve Board

 --Sandra Pianalto, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland 

Papers and panel discussions will feature academics, policymakers, and market participants addressing topics such as financial stability indexes; the economics of risk data; securitization and use of sensitive data; networks and contagion; financial stability and aggregate credit; and financial stability and banks. .
