Theme: New Perspectives in Finance Risk and Accounting Management

Understanding and bridging disciplinary as well as cultural boundaries in Finance, Risk and Accounting Management 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 participants from industry and academia.

Every year around 100 participants from more than 20 nations are selected by a rigorous review process and come together to exchange their research ideas, build collaborations and discuss the future of theory and practice in Finance, Risk and Accounting Management! All accepted papers can be published in the annual Finance Risk and Accounting proceedings with ISBN number.
