Conference on: Recent Advances in Mutual Fund and Hedge Fund Research
ESMT and the School of Business and Economics at Humboldt University are hosting a conference on recent advances in mutual fund and hedge fund research to be held in Berlin on August 25-26, 2014. The goal of the conference is to bring together leading academics interested in asset management in a network environment, so as to provide a forum of discussion on a wide range of theoretical and empirical issues as well as policy implications relating to mutual funds and hedge funds.
Authors are welcome to submit empirical or theoretical papers on any aspect related to mutual funds or hedge funds. Only papers which have not been published or accepted for publication will be considered. To provide ample time for the discussion of each paper, one hour will be allocated for the presentation and discussion of each paper. A maximum of eight papers will be selected for the conference. Presenting authors and discussants will receive hotel accommodation in Berlin for up to three nights and will not have to pay the conference registration fee. Limited travel grants are available.
If you would like to present your research, please send an electronic copy of your paper (pdf only) to Netsai Ndaza at Netsai.Ndaza@esmt.org by April 15, 2014. The authors of selected papers will be informed by April 30, 2014.
We invite all interested academics and practitioners to attend the conference. If you have questions and if you would like to discuss one of the presented papers at the conference please contact Guillermo Baquero (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tim Adam (email@example.com). More information can be found at https://www.esmt.org/amc2014.
The conference takes place at ESMT, which was the former “Staatsratsgebäude” at Schlossplatz 1. Built in 1964, the building hosted the Staatsrat (National Council) of the GDR until 1989. After reunification, the building was used in many ways, including as the temporary office of the German Chancellor. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Berlin has become one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. Some of Berlin’s famous landmarks are: Checkpoint Charlie, the symbolic crossover point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War or the Reichstag, the impressive parliament building that offers panoramic views of the city from its glass dome. Berlin’s cultural scene is thriving and it has something for everyone: bohemian cafes stand next to the finest restaurants, student drinking holes are nestled alongside sophisticated cocktail bars and underground clubs can be found close to the city’s grand opera house.
