The last few years have witnessed the emergence of new business models, breakthrough technologies, and customer experiences that are creatively disrupting the banking sector. The rise of Fintech – which refers to the use of technology to deliver innovative financial solutions – is rapidly and profoundly transforming banking as we know it. While the Fintech phenomenon is booming, it is noticeable that, so far, it has been commented mostly by the press and the media outlets. Scientific research on Fintechs is sparse and still in its infancy. For the research community, the opportunities are very open today to develop a deep understanding of Fintechs as well as their impact on the banking landscape.
We invite you to showcase your research and ideas in any area on Fintech and banking transformation. The conference is an opportunity to join a community of researchers, practitioners and experts with varied backgrounds and interests in the financial technology arena, including finance, behavioral finance, management, innovation, entrepreneurship, strategy, design science, sociology, information technology and information systems.
Jointly Organized by UQAR and Desjardins, the conference offers an intensive two-day program including panels, workshops and keynotes speakers. The event provides participants with opportunities to exchange ideas, present original research, learn about recent and ongoing studies, and network with peers. Experts, faculty and doctoral students from Quebec, Canada and around the world will have the opportunity to present and share their ideas in both languages: English and French.
All abstracts and symposia proposals should include title and full contact details, in an electronic Doc file to: email@example.com . You may submit your abstract as soon as possible but no later than April 8th 2018. For more information about the conference, you are invited to visit: finbat.uqar.ca. All the submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed by the scientific program committee and judged by their relevance to the conference, and their potential to generate discussion. Submissions can be in English or French.
In order to give as many attendees as possible the chance to present their work at the conference, the number of submissions per presenting author is limited to two submissions in total (symposium, oral presentation): By making a submission to the conference, the author(s) of each submission agree that at least one author of each accepted submission will attend the conference and present the research.
