2024 Applied Finance Conference 

10 May 2024 | St. John's University, New York, NY

The Twelfth Annual FMA Applied Finance Conference will be hosted at St. John’s University’s Tobin College of Business's Manhattan campus (101 Astor Place, New York, NY 10003) located in the heart of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods. 

The Conference is much smaller and more focused than the FMA’s traditional meetings and includes a relatively small number of papers to provide ample opportunity for presentations and discussion by participants. FMA seeks high-quality papers from scholars and practitioners in the fields of finance and accounting that:

  • Inform practice and advance the frontiers of academic research in directions relevant to practice.
  • Address issues that are relevant to contemporary issues globally and for policy formation and assessment.
  • Introduce new hypotheses that have the potential to stimulate additional research.

Paper Submissions

The paper submission deadline was Thursday, 1 February 2024. We are no longer accepted submissions.

The editors of Financial Management (FM), the flagship journal of FMA International, will be apprised by the conference program committee of papers that the committee assesses to be of particularly high-quality.  In select cases, the editors will “lightly solicit” papers for submission to FM by offering fast-turnaround, high-quality reviews, waived initial submission fees, and enhanced marketing of papers that are eventually accepted through this submission route. Referees for “lightly-solicited” papers will be made aware that the paper was invited for submission by the editors.  While these invitations do not promise eventual publication of papers in FM, the invitations are only offered to a small number of papers each year that the respective FMA conference program committees identify as likeliest to clear the bar for publication in FM without major revisions.
