This paper development workshop brings together an international group of academics conducting research in finance and related areas from business and economics. The symposium this year will have the format of a paper development workshop, where invited speakers and poster session participants will receive feedback on their work from leading experts and journal editors: Geoff Wood, Douglas Cumming, Roger Strange, Konstantinos Stathopoulos, Stergios Leventis, Marc Goergen and Igor Filatotchev. Journals that welcome papers from the workshop include: Academy of Management Perspectives, Journal of Financial Stability, Journal of International Accounting, Auditing and Taxation, International Business Review, Human Resource Management Journal, Corporate Governance: An International Review, Review of Corporate Finance, and Annals of Corporate Governance.


There will be no registration cost, but presenters (in the oral and poster session) will need to make their own arrangements for accommodation, travel and sustenance. Poster session papers should be sent as an electronic copy in PDF format to isf@uea.ac.uk by May 15th, 2023 for review. We follow a rolling acceptance system whereby authors are notified of the review decision within four weeks of submitting their paper.
