Change in format: online conference 21-22 September 2020
8th annual International Conference on Applied Research in Economics and Finance (iCare)
We invite submissions to the annual iCare Conference, organised by the Higher School of Economics (Perm).
Due to the Covid-pandemic, country lockdowns, and disruptions to international travel, this year the conference will take place ONLINE on 21(22) September 2020. All regular presentations will be 15 minutes (including questions) grouped in 60-minute sessions. One conference day will not exceed 3 hours of online time, to minimise the Zoom-fatigue and to maximise the opportunities to involve researchers from different time zones.
We will consider papers relating to the broad area of applied economics and/or finance with implications for real-world challenges. We particularly welcome submissions on Covid impact and implications in short and long term in economics, finance and management, as well as on Effectiveness of online teaching, learning and knowledge exchange.
This year we are looking forward to keynote speeches by Professor Michael Koetter (University of Magdeburg, IWH and University of Groningen) and Professor Stefan Trautmann (University of Heidelberg and Tilburg University).
Please visit the conference website at https://icare.hse.ru/2020/ for further details. Papers (full drafts) should be submitted using easychair by 15 August, 2020 (the deadline has been extended due to the change in format). Decisions will be announced by 5 September, 2020.
