Location: Oxford UK - Oriel College of the University of Oxford
(Sept. 22nd - 24st) - 2-page proposal due April 20th,
Conference webpages:


Theme: New Perspectives in Finance Risk and Accounting -
Understanding and bridging disciplinary as well as cultural boundaries in Finance, Risk and Accounting research.
This conference aims to overcome the often self-imposed paradigmatic boundaries and reflexive isomorphisms of the individual fields, and invites fresh perspectives. Despite its methodological and disciplinary openness, it does so with a strong focus on academic rigour and robustness. All abstracts and articles will be strictly double-blind peer reviewed, and there will be longer discussion sections during the conference in which authors can discuss their research in-depth with a small group of interested scholars.

Every year around 100 participants from more than 20 nations are selected by a rigorous review process and come together at great hosting universities to exchange their research ideas, build collaborations and discuss the future of theory and practice in Finance, Risk and Accounting.
Join in for the 14th edition of this conference and apply by
submitting a two-page abstract-proposal.
