Behavioral-Finance-Based Technical & Fundamental Analysis

Special Call for Presentation & Attendance

At the Seventh Annual Meeting of the Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics, September 16-18, 2015, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Co-Sponsored by the Market Technicians Association-MTA

Paper Submission Deadline: June 30, 2015

Objectives. Traditional Finance paradigm has constantly advocated for Fundamental Analysis as the method of choice for Valuation and Pricing purposes. The flip side of this has also meant continued resistance on part of academia to the widely-popular modern Technical Analysis method and its originator, Dow Theory. This, despite the fact that Dow Theory was built upon "information efficiency", and the regularly recurring bull and bear markets were/are seen as a result of what we now call "irrational exuberance". Consequently, the Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics has now recognized, and embraced, the value proposition that modern day Technical Analysis can bring to the mix in terms of both Research and Application. And it is exactly such a realization that defines the newly-found common ground between the Academy http://aobf.org  on the one hand and the Market Technicians Association, MTA, www.mta.org on the other hand. Therefore, we highly encourage you to Participate as either a Paper-Presenting Attendee by submitting your research paper or just as a Non-Presenting Attendee.

The 26th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Entrepreneurial Finance

Special Call for Papers, Seminars, and Participation

September 16-18, 2015, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Submission Deadline: June 30, 2015

Dear Colleague and Friend of The Academy of Entrepreneurial Finance: This LAST CALL for Papers and Participation is MORE THAN A SIMPLE INVITATION to ATTEND THE 2015 ANNUAL MEETING of the Academy of Entrepreneurial Finance, AEF, held on September 16-18, 2015, in Philadelphia, PA. This in fact is a call for your renewed involvement and support of an original organization that started over a quarter century ago and led the way to help solidify, advance, and grow research and application in the field of Entrepreneurial Finance. But, that was then and this is now! The Academy of Entrepreneurial Finance - along with its flagship publication, The Journal of Entrepreneurial Finance, JEF - all thanks to the solid developments in the sister science of Behavioral Finance, has once again reinvented itself and is determined now more than ever, to continue to lead the way in not only reviving the very exciting field of Entrepreneurial Finance but to make it relevant again in academic and professional circles across the globe. Relevant because the "Efficient-Markets-Based" Traditional Finance could never provide a theory for the very "Non-Efficient" field of Entrepreneurial Finance! But now the real-life discipline of Behavioral Finance can! How do know it? Because we are behind the very first attempt to help build a rather comprehensive Behavioral-Finance-Based Risk and Valuation Model: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2331923 Now you see why we call for your renewed involvement in our very exciting field. Below shows how you can join us at AEF-2015 in Philadelphia.

How to Submit your Proposed Paper or Workshop. To submit your work for possible presentation which can be a research and/or application paper or workshop, simply click on the below URL and follow the simple instructions. Submission Deadline for Presenters is June 30, 2015; Early Submission is Encouraged. Fast-Tracked Notifications of results will be emailed to all submitters within just two (2) weeks from the date of submission. Here is the URL for Paper Submission (please note the URL will take you to our parent organization's website, Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics): http://www.aobf.org/papersubmissionform.php    

BONUS OFFER: For the price of one admission to this conference, you also get a free Pass to all the sessions at the Seventh Annual Meeting of the Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics, ABF&E-2015, which meets during the same time period and at the same location as AEF-2015.

The "World Consortium for Financial Risk Analysis and Application" Announces: "Financial Risk: Analysis & Application-2015"

Thursday, September 17, 2015; Philadelphia, PA, USA

In Conjunction with the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics

Info: Staff@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 research findings and professional advancement related exclusively to the still unsettled Financial Risk phenomenon. This is a Special Event, a Limited Announcement, at this stage. Inquiries for Participation may be made via email: Staff@aobf.org
