Postponed: International Symposium in Finance (ISF 2020) in collaboration with BAM2020




The International Symposium in Finance (ISF 2020) has currently been postponed until further notice. Thank you!


In collaboration with BAM2020 Conference

Building on the success of ISF2018 and ISF2019, 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 shared values of: Interdisciplinarity, Impact, Sustainability, Boldness, Diversity, Collaboration and Collegiality.

In partnership with the BAM “International Business” Special Interest Group (SIG), the ISF2020 welcomes contributions in the broader domain of International Business that are of interest to a finance audience. A special track has been set-up with plenary contributions by Tamer Cavusgil (GSU), Geoffrey Wood (Western Univ Canada) and Emmanuella Plakoyiannaki (Univ of Vienna). A ‘Meet the editors” panel discussion will offering valuable insights: Monica Contestabile (Chief Editor, Nature Sustainability); Konstantinos Stathopoulos (Editor‐in‐Chief Corporate Governance: An International Review) and  Alessandro Zattoni (Former Editor-in-chief CGIR;  Editorial Board Member Journal of Management Studies and  Journal of Management and Governance).

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.
