EFA Doctoral Tutorial and Doctoral Workshop. Submission window closed.
The competitive one-day Doctoral Tutorial in Finance (EFA-DT) is for selected students nearing the end of their doctoral thesis and is held the same day as the official opening of the EFA Annual Meeting. In 2021, the EFA-DT will be held on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday August 25 2021 online.
The Doctoral Workshop will also be held on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday August 25 2021 online and will study FinTech, digital currency and blockchains, which has become one of the fastest growing research areas in Finance. We will examine research into the architecture of distributed ledgers, decentralized consensus protocols, and smart contracts, as well as the governance issues connected to them. Uses of cryptocurrency in payments, entrepreneurial finance (ICOs), remittances, and capital market clearing and settlement will be explored. Additional sessions will consider research into the performance of digital assets as investments and the emergence of stablecoins as potential rivals to sovereign fiat currencies, among other topics. This EFA-DW will highlight the most important research published to date on these topics and look closely at emerging regulation and FinTech data sources.
