Dear Colleagues,

In the current Pandemic period, we hope our old and new friends around the world are healthy and safe. The 28th SFM conference will be held on December 11-12, 2020, in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Taiwan is among the lowest affected area in the world, and we hope that the coronavirus outbreak will be substantially contained around the world in the next few months. If the flight restrictions are lifted, the conference will be held as usual. Otherwise we will provide an on-line alternative for foreign participants.

The theme this year is Volatility and the Impact of the Pandemic on Financial Markets; however, all financial markets related papers are welcome. The 28th SFM conference also features dual submission with the Journal of Financial Markets (JFM) and Global Finance Journal (GFJ) Special Issue on Behavioural Finance. Attending authors will have the option of submitting their papers to the above journals.

SFM conference will provide up to USD 2000 for three Best Paper Awards, plus four Journal of Financial Studies Awards (USD 500). For details please check the Call for Papers announcement on the website.

Cordially,

Program Chair
SFM conference
