7th Young Finance Scholars Conference
The University of Sussex Business School is pleased to announce the 7th Young Finance Scholars’ (YFS) Conference. The special theme for this year’s event is Responsible Finance, which includes environmental issues, sustainability, ethical investments and the detection of illegal or manipulative trading
Conference submissions can be extended abstracts or papers, and they are encouraged in any area of Responsible Finance or Finance, including but not limited to: AI, asset pricing, banking, behavioural finance, big data analysis, corporate finance, entrepreneurial finance, financial econometrics, insurance, machine learning, portfolio optimization, quantitative finance, risk management and trading.
Given the profile of the participants, we are very flexible on the submission you choose – it can be anything from an extended abstract to a completed paper – preferably not a paper that has already been accepted for publication, but if such a paper is accompanied with an extended abstract of the currently-planned follow-on research on which the scholar would like feedback – even that would be ok too. The more details that are included in your submission, the more likely (if accepted) we would ask for a presentation rather than a poster.
Who Should Attend?
YFS is Europe’s premier forum for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and other early career researchers. It provides the opportunity for these young scholars to present their research, discuss and debate the models used and the methodologies that they employ, network with their peers and industry experts, and receive comments and advice from leading researchers including editors of some key journals in the field.
