Emerging Risks in Finance
Challenges and Opportunities for Investors, Institutions and Regulators
This conference/workshop is an initiative of a group of researchers led by Professors Thomas Walker (Concordia University, Canada) and Dieter Gramlich (Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) Heidenheim, Germany). The academic conference and associated academic/practitioner workshop focus on emerging risks in finance from the differential perspectives of investors, regulators and financial institutions. Academic papers and practitioner presentations in all areas of emerging risks in finance (e.g., environmental, social, and technological risks) and related risk management are invited.
The two-day event will feature a combination of academic research and practitioner presentations in the area of emerging risks in finance (including the identification, measurement, and management of said risks as well as related mitigation/adaptation approaches). Presentations and breakout sessions will take place on Friday, September 20th (full day), and Saturday, September 21st (morning). Approximately 15 academic papers and practitioner presentations will be scheduled. Each presentation should last a maximum of 15-20 minutes, with a subsequent discussion of approximately 10 minutes. The workshop has no submission or participation fee.
The organizers will cover the cost of meals (coffee breaks, lunches and workshop dinner). Presenters will have to book, organize, and cover their own accommodation and travelling. Participation in the workshop for non-presenters is free, but places will be limited.
