    Credit supply to businesses and consumers is essential to economic growth and credit risk management is critical to financial institutions. Financial technology has empowered modern banking and their smart decisions. Credit rating is important for the bond market and financial liberalisation. The pandemic of COVID-19 has great impact on world’s economy and credit risk. Under this background, we will hold the first Credit Scoring and Credit Rating conference (CSCR I) in Chengdu, Sichuan, China on 29-30 October 2020, themed 'Bridge the Gap'. The conference is oriented to bridge the gap between academics and practice in the credit industry and open to all scholars and practitioners from banking, consumer finance, corporate finance, bond and credit derivatives markets, Fintech, credit bureaux, credit services & agencies, and other related fields. Participants are expected to share innovative applications and practices at the conference. Papers and presentations are invited on any topic related to credit scoring, credit rating and financial risk management of credit assets, with a special focus on new data mining and machine learning methodologies in risk forecasting, and the impact of COVID-19 on credit risk.

    Bridge the Gap

    实体经济的信贷供给是经济发展的关键动力。信用风险管理对金融机构至关重要。金融科技驱动了现代银行的智能决策。信用评级是资本市场金融服务和金融开放的重要内容。新冠疫情对世界经济和信用风险造成了显著影响。在此背景下,首届“信用评分与信用评级会议”(CSCR I)将于2020年10月29-30日在西南财经大学召开,本次会议以“Bridge the Gap”为主题。会议将搭建信贷领域学术界和实业界的桥梁,欢迎来自银行业、公司金融、消费金融、债券和信贷衍生品市场、金融科技、征信机构、评级机构、信用信息服务机构等方面的专家和学者一起讨论交流,分享与信用评分、信用评级和信贷资产的风险管理相关的研究成果。此次会议特别关注新颖的数据挖掘和机器学习算法在风险预测上的应用,以及新冠疫情对信用风险的影响。
