Management allows organizations, governments, decision-makers to make their projects and services more structured, efficient, productive and competitive. IT business stands for new trends of development, opportunities and innovation. We believe that only doing well in these four areas, this can ensure each organization, decision-maker, investor, government and country to achieve long-term success and collaboration.

2019 International Conference on FinTech
June 10-11, 2019

Shanghai, China

Authors are invited to submit completed papers (see the Call for details).
Please submit your papers in electronic format (PDF files only) to: df@saif.sjtu.edu.cn
Paper submission deadline: April 10, 2019.

6th Young Finance Scholars Conference
June 13-14, 2019

University of Sussex, Jubilee Building, Falmer, Brighton, UK
Submission deadline: April 28, 2019

Given the profile of the participants, we are very flexible on the submission you choose – it can be anything from an extended abstract to a completed paper – preferably not a paper that has already been accepted for publication, but if such a paper is accompanied with an extended abstract of the currently-planned follow-on research on which the scholar would like feedback – even that would be ok too. The more details that are included in your submission, the more likely (if accepted) we would ask for a presentation rather than a poster. Please e-mail your submission as a pdf attachment with the Subject YFC_2019 to Johannes Höbelt (j.hobelt@sussex.ac.uk) by 28 April 2019.

Young scholars attend conferences for feedback on their research, to network with other scholars in their field and to seek employment opportunities. However, many international conferences are too large to maximize these types of returns: sessions may be sparsely attended (especially by the senior academics in a position to offer the most insightful feedback) and productive networking can be limited to only the most confident and well-connected PhD students and post docs.

The YFS conference follows a different structure, which is specifically designed to provide the returns that a young scholar seeks from conference participation. Each session is chaired by a well-known senior academic who specialises in their field, and the session chair also provides a short review of the work to help the presenter position their research towards the right journal. Networking events include practitioner round tables, each with a lively informed discussion about industry employment in specific areas, and a meet-the-editor panel helps young scholars learn how to maximize the chance of getting their research published in top academic journals. Finally, to add to your CVs credibility, prizes are awarded for best paper in stream and for best overall paper.

The main theme for this year’s event is Financial Technology (FinTech) with a keynote speech by Andrei Kirilenko and practitioner round tables emphasising this buoyant area of employment. We encourage submissions on FinTech applications to accounting, algorithmic trading, asset management, banking, corporate finance, insurance and risk management.

Conference submissions can be extended abstracts or papers, and they are encouraged in any area of Fintech or Finance, including but not limited to: AI, asset pricing, banking, behavioural finance, big data analysis, corporate finance, entrepreneurial finance, financial econometrics, insurance, machine learning, portfolio optimization, quantitative finance, risk management and trading.

Once you have successfully applied for or renewed your membership, a payment receipt is automatically delivered to your inbox – you are then considered a fully-subscribed EFA member for the calendar year (January–December) and are thus eligible to submit a paper to and/or register for the EFA Annual Meeting (which is a members-only event).

A one-day EFA Doctoral Tutorial (EFA-DT) will be held on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 – preceded the evening before by a welcome dinner for participants. This well-established yearly EFA doctoral event is intended for Finance students nearing completion of their PhD who are about to enter the job market.

Authors of papers presented at the EFA-DT will each receive a stipend after the event to help cover registration and travel expenses. Interested PhD students should consult the EFA-DT guidelines for making submissions between: February 15, 2019 (when submission opens) and the deadline: March 15, 2019 (when submission closes) – those accepted should also refer to the EFA 2019 Carcavelos (Lisbon) conference website for relevant news and updates.

NOTE: Students selected for the EFA Doctoral Tutorial are expected to register for and participate in the EFA Annual Meeting.
ATTENTION: Accepted students must fully disclose whether their September schedule allows for travel to Chicago to participate in the CQA Fall Conference if they win the EFA-DT best paper prize, and give advance notice if they may be unable to fulfill this potential prize commitment (which in no way diminishes their chances of winning the best paper prize yet enables the DT organizers to make alternate arrangements).

A one-day EFA Doctoral Workshop (EFA-DW) will be organized on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 – preceded the evening before by a welcome dinner for participants. EFA recently launched its successful educational workshop series on "New Frontiers in Finance" intended for PhD students in their second or third year. The topic changes from year to year – in 2019 it is: ESG / CSR / SRI. The day will start with an overview of the three theme topics: Environmental, Social and Governance Criteria (ESG); Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR); Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) – followed by the three chairs who will each give a “topics” lecture exploring the various aspects of research in these fields in more detail. This EFA-DW will examine, discuss, and summarize recent research on the theme topics, the data that are available, some relevant developments, as well as potential directions for future research. For more details, please refer to the EFA Doctoral Workshop website and the EFA Annual Meeting Doctoral Events webpage. Accepted applicants for the 2019 EFA-DW will each receive a complimentary EFA membership as well as a registration pass to the EFA Annual Meeting. Interested PhD students are advised to consult the EFA-DW application guidelines (deadline: March 15, 2019) – and those accepted should also refer to the EFA 2019 Carcavelos (Lisbon) conference website for relevant news and updates.

This is a Call for Expressions of Interest for new members to be appointed to the Advisory Scientific Committee (ASC) of the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) – to be distributed among the membership of the European Finance Association (EFA) and other interested parties.
