1.Conference on African Business, Organisations & Society
Despite the position of the African economy in the global economic system, only very few Universities in the United Kingdom have deliberately recognised African economic development. Therefore this has driven the incentive of introducing a vibrant cluster for African Business, Organisations & Society to solely conduct investigations into the tapping of these potentials and the contribution of Africa to the World economy.
This is the rationale behind the establishment of the cluster for African Business, Organisations & Society as one of the research centres at the School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London.
In order to inaugurate the cluster, there will be a conference on Monday 2 July, 2018 in which we welcome interested academics, professionals, business, civil society organisations, media practitioners and PhD students within and outside Queen Mary University of London to present papers, work in progress or part of their research output/dissertations on any African country or countries.
Themes and Topics
All areas of African economic development such as Accounting, Finance, Economics, Organisations and Management.
Abstract of between 600-800 words or full papers can be sent to Dr Owolabi Bakre as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: for the abstract or full papers is 30 May, 2018.

Behavioural Finance Working Group (BFWG), Queen Mary, University of London, UK and the Society for the Study of Emerging Markets, USA will hold a two day meeting on 14-15 June 2018. In this two-day meeting which is jointly organized by the Behavioural Finance Working Group (BFWG), Queen Mary, University of London, UK, and the Society for the Study of Emerging Markets, USA, we will consider how the fields of behavioural finance, economic psychology, financial socio-analysis and other related areas can enhance our understanding of financial behaviours. Papers exploring any Behavioural Finance issue will be considered, but those related to the influence of sentiment and mood on the decision-making of individuals (e.g. consumption, saving, borrow, investing) and/or corporations (e.g. financing, investing, pay-out policy), and the implications of such for markets and economic policy, will be particularly welcomed.

Review of Behavioural Finance and Emerging Markets Finance and Trade will give a Best Quantitative Paper Award and the Qualitative Research in Financial Markets will give a Best Qualitative Paper award.
