10th INFINITI Conference on International Finance

The site is live here, the programme looks excellent, and the guest speakers are world class. From the site:

2012 is a special year for us. It will be the 10th year of running the INFINITI Conference on International Finance, in conjunction this year with the Journal of Banking and Finance. Over the last ten years, we have been privileged to have had keynote speakers such as Ike Mathur, Raman Uppal, William L Megginson, Edward Kane, Andrei Shleifer, Robert Engle, Maureen O’Hara, and Elroy Dimson. We have also been fortunate to have been joined by many other leading academics, students and practitioners who have openly shared and discussed each others’ latest research.

Our keynote speakers for 2012 are Carmen Reinhart and Iftekhar Hasan.

We hope that you will be able to join us this year, and to that end are pleased to announce that the Call for Papers has been sent out and the online paper submission facility is now open. Please see the full call here.

We would also like to draw your attention to a call for papers for a special issue of RIBAF.

2012 will be a great year, and we hope to see you here at Trinity College Dublin for yet another fantastic INFINITI Conference on 11-12 June.

A DRAFT of the conference paper sessions is available at https://www.openconf.org/infiniti2012/openconf.php. Note however that this is not finalised, and that it omits as yet the details of a number of special sessions on the future of the euro, financial regulation etc.
