Call for Papers and Panels-2016

Co-Located with the 2016 International Meeting of the
Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics and Academy of Entrepreneurial
Finance-Europe, March 14-16, 2016, Venice, Italy; www.aobf.org


MOTIVATION. Risk – peril, hazard, danger, threat, possibility, chance, attempt, venture, or whatever other term in the English language that we can use to express its mental picture, or meaning, by us human beings – is just that; a human experience; a perception; familiarity and knowledge; a feeling, sense, awareness; a view, an assessment, a logic. Bottom line: Risk is a HUMAN experience encountered, perceived, understood, and acted upon by a human being via a decision or a set of decisions made either instantly or within a time span; whether or not made alone or in consultation with others, including a machine(s)/computer(s). This was TRUE when we lived and worked in caves and it is TRUE today when we are about to live and work in space.

Financial Risk – as one of the only two pillars of finance and as a subset of Risk in general as affirmed in above – cannot turn into something else taking residency outside its HUMAN origin; the brain. Specifically, Financial Risk is still a HUMAN experience encountered, perceived, understood, and acted upon by a human being via a decision or a set of decisions made either instantly or within a time span; whether or not made alone or in consultation with others, including a machine(s)/computer(s). Moreover and per the logic of Set Theory, change of context and variations in types of transactions do not change anything at all about the nature and origin of financial risk; or risk in general for that matter.

OBJECTIVE. To provide a robust global forum for exchange of latest research findings and professional advancement related exclusively to the still unsettled Risk phenomenon and its Application in Finance.

Submission Deadline is January 10, 2016; Notifications of results will be emailed to all respondents generally in 10 days from the date of submission.

Objectives. The Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics offers a dedicated forum for exchange of research findings and professional advancement related to the fast-growing field of behavioral finance and economics.
