In recent years, FinTech, or financial technologies, have been rapidly developing and reshaping business practices and the financial services industry. In parallel, emerging technologies, e.g., machine learning and big data methods, have also been increasingly applied in the study of financial economics. Such developments have generated considerable interest in the new and important research area of FinTech and emerging technologies.
Following the success of the first three FinTech conferences, the Department of Finance in the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University and the Georgia FinTech Academy, together with the Review of Financial Studies will jointly host the fourth annual FinTech conference. The conference will be held in Fall 2023 at the Buckhead Center of Georgia State University in Atlanta. The conference is highly selective. We received more than 150 high-quality submissions for each of the past three conferences and 12 papers are selected each year for the program.
To optimize interactions among researchers, we plan to hold the conference in person. Nonetheless, we will keep safety in mind and follow the guidance provided by the government at the time.
