The theme of the 2021 conference is “Economic and Societal Resilience for Better Future”

This year, the focus of the conference is of course on better post-pandemic futures. We invite people to propose papers and presentations (including different formats of debate sessions etc) on what we can learn from the current pandemic to design more resilient social and economic systems and processes to prepare us for the future economic, health, and environmental shocks.

Keynote: Matti Suominen, Professor of Finance at Aalto University

His current research areas include Financial Markets, Hedge Funds and Quantitative Trading Strategies. In addition to doing research Prof. Suominen is actively involved in management consulting to financial institutions and executive training.
