As every year, lots of networking opportunities, proceedings with an ISBN number, many partner-journals, and an intense social side program provide the frame of this annual three day conference in Finance, Risk and Accounting Perspectives. The perspectives invite an inter-disciplinary global academic audience from all related fields. The scope of this conference is broad to include many perspectives and allow for inspirations, yet the papers will be selected by a rigorous peer-review process. In last years it was held 2013 in Cambridge, 2014 in Oxford, and in 2015 it will be in Steyr at our partner the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria. Its partnering journals are indexed in EBSCO, Cabell, Social Science Research Network and many more.

Besides the traditional streams, this year's motto is Teaching and Learning Finance Risk and Accounting, with lots of workshops and round tables on lecturing Finance, Risk and Accounting, including case-methods. So besides the traditional streams, we are also looking for cases, notes and panels on teaching and learning in track 17. Please find the official call here and perhaps distribute it amongst your peers.
