Call for papers for a Special Issue of the Journal of Forecasting

“Forecasting Financial Markets”

The financial crisis of the past few years has shown the need for new and improved forecasting models of markets in volatile times. The special issue aims to provide a high quality focus upon recent theoretical and empirical contributions in the area of financial forecasting. Generally, there should be a strong focus on the journal’s objectives: that is backtesting, discussing or theoretically analysing forecasting.  Typical topics that will be addressed include:

Call for Papers: 3rd European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) and Doctoral Consortium PDF Drucken E-Mail
Geschrieben von: Rouven Wiegard   
Montag, den 25. August 2014 um 14:50 Uhr

Call for Papers: 3rd European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) and Doctoral Consortium

3rd European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) and Doctoral Consortium

Stuttgart, Germany,

Main Conference: April 23-24, 2015

Doctoral Consortium: April 22, 2015

Keynote Speaker: Joseph Engelberg
(University of California)


The financial crisis has left retail investors with little understanding and trust in financial institutions. Since the crisis a slew of regulations have been introduced to curtail financial market excesses. We have yet to develop an understanding of the effect of these regulations on investors. Most research focuses on institutions and institutional investing with little focus on how retail investors are faring. Few researchers have studied, or been able to study, the common conjecture that retail investors have retracted from and no longer participate in the financial market.

Research is scarce about investment decisions of retail investors in this changing market and regulatory environment. Practitioners suggest investor education as a solution to falling participation and increased market complexity. Yet, we know little about the effect investor education has, or could have, on investor welfare. The impact of technology to support decision-making, participation, and education are all areas that require further research. Data provided by different market participants, e.g. exchanges and investment firms, allow to study these specific questions.

TOPICS: The European Retail Investment Conference (ERIC) invites submissions that investigate financial literacy and education, regulation and new regulatory bodies, the impact of technology on retail investors, investors’ decision-making, and market microstructure. Papers on topics not mentioned above will also be considered.

BEST PAPER AWARD: Prizes of 600 EUR (best paper) and 400 EUR (second best paper) will be awarded for the best doctoral student papers.

SUBMISSION: ERIC will accept completed but unpublished research papers that have not been accepted for publication at the time of submission. Submitted papers will be double-blind reviewed by the program committee. ERIC welcomes Ph.D. students to submit working papers or preliminary drafts of one of their Ph.D. essays to the doctoral consortium. The submission deadline for the main conference and for the doctoral consortium is November 8, 2014. Accommodation and registration are free of charge for presenters and accepted Ph.D. students. Acceptance of papers will be announced around January 15, 2015. Further information can be found on www.retailinvestmentconference.org or in the Call for Papers.

CONFERENCE CHAIRS:

Hans-Peter Burghof, University of Hohenheim, Germany
Ryan Riordan, Queen's School of Business, Queen's University, Canada
Christof Weinhardt, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
