Rethinking Banking and Finance: international conference in June
The event is a collaboration between the Universitat de València, the Ivie (Valencian Institute for Economic Research), the Universitat Jaume I and our own School of Management here in Leicester, all in association with the Journal of Banking and Finance.
This is the fourth annual conference and follows on from the successful 2011 event where IFABS (the International Finance and Banking Society) was formally launched. Dr Meryem Duygun Fethi, Lecturer in Finance, is once again co-chairing the conference which runs over 18-20 June 2012. The keynote speakers include:
- Philipp Hartmann, Deputy Director General of the research department at the European Central Bank
- Ike Mathur, Professor of Finance at Southern Illinois University
- Javier Suárez, Professor of Banking and Finance at CEMFI, Madrid
The call for papers is now open with a 1 April deadline for abstract submission. The early registration deadline for the conference is 9 May.
