Building on the success of ISF2018, this event brings together an international group of academics conducting research in finance and related areas from business, economics and other disciplines. The ethos, organization and content of the Symposium is driven by the following shared values: Interdisciplinarity, Impact, Sustainability, Boldness, Diversity, Collaboration and Collegiality. There are three tracks for presentations: Keynote (up to 1 hour each with Q&A), Plenary (30 mins each, including discussion and Q&A) and Paper Presentation. Most presentations are based on academic papers but we also welcome the discussion of research impact case studies, teaching innovations, datasets and open source software code.
The Symposium takes place at the Tsatsaronakio Cultural Centre and the Molos Bay Hotel in Kissamos, Crete, Greece. Kissamos is conveniently located 30 minutes from the Chania international airport and port, and, 2.5 hours from the Heraklion international airport.
The symposium has a child-friendly policy and welcomes presenters with their families in the academic and social events (see details below on registration). The symposium offers a mentor to junior faculty and PhD students for informal support and networking facilitation. Participants are encouraged to stay on after the symposium in order to promote more interactions, develop research collaborations and reduce the carbon footprint from annual travel.
