FinTech – A Call for Proposals

The RFS announces the creation of a novel two-stage editorial process designed to encourage researchers to engage in innovative research on the emerging topic of FinTech.

The RFS sponsoring editors are Itay Goldstein, Wei Jiang, and Andrew Karolyi. The deadline for proposals is March 15, 2017 and the workshop to review paper proposals is scheduled for May 25, 2017 at Columbia University in New York. The Call for Proposals may be view here.
