Eighth Annual Meeting of the Academy of
Behavioral Finance & Economics
September 21-23, 2016, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Venue: Conference Facilities at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas
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. Given the well-recognized reality that "to make a decision, emotion is the necessary trigger (and) without emotion, one would be reduced to the state of an idiot savant who goes on endlessly calculating without the ability to make a choice" (Olsen, 2008), the objective of the annual conference is to encourage and disseminate research and inquiry in the very promising area of Behavioral Finance & Economics.
Theoretical, Empirical/Experimental, and Applied works that involve the application of psychology and all other social sciences, as well as neuroscience, to all areas of financial decision-making and practice will be considered for presentation at the conference. Such works include, but are not limited to, the followings:
The Journal of Behavioral Finance & Economics, JBF&E, with Werner DeBondt as the Editor-in-Chief. Upon request of interested presenters, a few carefully selected and further reviewed papers would be considered for publication in Volume 6 of The Journal of Behavioral Finance & Economics- JBF&E. For submission considerations please see the related deadline at the end of this announcement.
Awards for the Robert A. Olsen Best Doctoral Student Papers in Behavioral Finance & Economics. Upon request at the time of submission, dissertations and/or research papers submitted by doctoral students from across the world will be further reviewed by the Program Committee, and up to three (3) Best Papers will be selected for special recognition at our 2015 ABF&E Annual Meeting.
