The 12th International Accounting & Finance Doctoral Symposium, is focused on developing the research strengths and skills of doctoral students. This symposium is hosted by Politecnico di Milano, in partnership with the Australian National University, Bangor University, Deakin University, SKEMA Business School, Tsinghua University, Universidad de Salamaca, Universita di Bologna, University of Leeds, University of Liverpool University of Strathclyde Business School and University of Queensland.

The symposium builds on the tremendous success of previous meetings, which took place in Wales (2018) Warsaw (2017) Glasgow (2016), Ljubljana (2015), Trondheim (2014), Bologna (2013), Glasgow (2012), Salamanca (2011), and Prato (2008-2010). IAFDS 2019 offers an excellent opportunity for students to present their work to an international audience outside their usual University environment. Prominent professors and researchers in the fields of finance, banking and accounting attend the symposium and provide detailed feedback to individual participants on their research.

Each participant will receive a written review of their submitted paper, the opportunity to present their work to leading professors, a detailed one-on-one discussion with an experienced academic about their paper, and an excellent networking experience with other doctoral students from around the globe.

At the end of the symposium certificates will be awarded for the Michael McKenzie Best Paper; the Maria Strydom Best Presenter, the Paper with Most Potential, Best Pitch and Best Discussant.
All students will receive a Certificate confirming their participation at IAFDS 12.

We seek original empirical and theoretical papers in the fields of finance, banking and accounting with an emphasis on findings that contribute to solving outstanding research problems of significant impact within these disciplines.
