2020 Conference Recognizes Two Additional Research Papers of Topical Note
Due to the significant number of submissions to the 2020 conference, a number of high quality papers were not able to be fully integrated into this year’s proceedings. The conference’s research committee identified two such papers that it wanted to highlight on the conference website. These “additional papers of topical note” have been posted to the website, along with a recorded video presentation by an author from each team in which they discuss their team's key findings.
The first paper, “Measurement of Small Business Lending Using Call Reports: Further Insights from the Small Business Lending Survey,” is by Jacob Goldston and Yan Y. Lee of the FDIC. In the paper, the authors assess the validity of a commonly used proxy for small business lending that is based on commercial and industrial loans with denominations of $1 million or less.

The second paper, “Cyberattacks on Small Banks,” is by Fabian Gogolin, University of Leeds, Leeds, England, and Ivan Lim and Francesco Vallascas of Durham University, Durham, England. In their working paper, the authors study cyberattacks at small banks with assets under $10 billion that occurred between 2005 and 2017.
