The J.P. Morgan Center for Commodities (JPMCC) produces academic and applied research for the broad commodity practitioner audience. Our Center sponsors an annual Research Symposium, with a bi-annual GCARD publication, in partnership with our global Research Council and Industry expert partners.
On this page:
The symposium's objective is to bring together global thought leaders and prominent stakeholders in commodities from both academia and industry to discuss their critical thinking and new research related to commodities. The focus of research is on real-world relevance of commodities research with academic rigor.
Sessions are limited to outstanding research and comprise of competitively selected and solicited papers, as well as industry research leaders’ presentations and industry panel discussions. In addition to traditional paper presentation sessions, we will have poster presentation sessions to showcase quality papers.

2022 Research Symposium
Academic & Applied Research
Global Commodities Applied Research Digest (GCARD)
The JPMCC is the home of an innovative bi-annual e-publication, the Global Commodities Applied Research Digest (GCARD), which is generously sponsored by Integrated Portfolio Intelligence, LLC, FourPoint Energy, LLC, and the CME Group. The purpose of the digest is to highlight for practitioners the key findings of applied research on topical issues in the agricultural, metals and mining, and energy markets as well as in commodity finance.
The aim of the digest is to serve the Center’s applied research mission by informing commodity-industry practitioners on research that will either directly impact their businesses or will impact public policy in the near future. The selection of articles is based on how relevant articles are to the concerns of professionals engaged in the business of commodities.
Until now, there has not been an accessible source of concise information about current research across commodity segments: the GCARD precisely fills this marketplace gap. An additional goal is to encourage dialog amongst stakeholders in the various commodity disciplines.
