EFA 2024 Message from Program Chair 

Dear EFA members and friends,

The next meeting of the European Finance Association will take place in Bratislava, Slovakia on August 21-24, 2024. You can find the conference registration link, along with the conference program here.

In light of last week’s news headlines about the unprecedented assassination attempt on the Slovak PM, the EFA would like to remind you that Slovakia is very safe:

  • Slovakia’s homicide rate is lower compared to most Western European countries, including UK, France, and Germany; it is also 3 x lower compared to Canada and 9 x lower compared to the United States (see, for example, here)
  • Slovakia is a member of NATO, European Union, Eurozone, and the Schengen zone
  • The conference will take place in the center of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. Bratislava is located 45 minutes by car from the Schwechat airport in Vienna, Austria.

The National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) is proud to organize the 51st Annual Meeting of the European Finance Association.

The meeting will be held from 21 through 24 August, 2024 in Bratislava.  

Register now to get the early bird rate!

We look forward to welcoming you in Bratislava!

The European Finance Association (EFA) is an international non-profit association with scientific and pedagogical objectives. Its events, including the  51st EFA Annual Meeting in Bratislava, Slovakia, are funded by external organizations. Without the financial support of these entities, it would not be possible to organize a successful conference.
