1st IAF PhD Conference


1st IAF PhD Conference

 at Dunboyne Castle Hotel, Co. Meath 15th May 2024

Submission Deadline: 5 February 2024


The main objective of the conference is to provide PhD students in finance, about to go on the job market, with an opportunity to present their research to their peers and leading researchers in the field in order to obtain feedback and practice the presentation of their key research ideas.  An added bonus is that those who present will also be invited to attend as a delegate (free of charge, including hotel accommodation) the main IAF Annual Conference which will be held the next two days at the same location (see, https://iafireland.ie/5th-iaf-conference/ ). It will allow presenting PhD students to network with senior academics and researchers from Ireland and abroad.


We invite submissions of complete papers from PhD students who are registered for their research degree at an institutional member of the IAF. The papers can come from any area in finance.


The conference will commence at 2pm on Wednesday 15 May, and will end by 6pm on Wednesday 15 May. The venue is Dunboyne Castle Hotel, Dunboyne, Co. Meath. The IAF will cover travel (public transport – upon submission of receipts) within Ireland and accommodation (at Dunboyne Castle Hotel) of participants, as required.


Important Dates:

The deadline for the submission of papers is midnight 5 February 2024. Only eligible submissions will be considered. Please submit your paper to irishacademyoffinance@gmail.com



Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 12 February 2024.
