I very much enjoyed your blog on interview with professor Malkiel; esp. the part on Behavioral Finance/Econ. So I thought to drop a line and let you know about The Academy of Behavioral Finance & Economics www.aobf.org and its 2010 Annual Meeting in Chicago.
Appreciate spreading the word via your blogs/sites.
Theoretical and empirical/experimental works that involve the application of psychology and neuroscience to all areas of financial decision-making and practice will be considered for presentation at the meeting. This includes, but is not limited to, the following areas:
1. Investment and the Working of Financial Markets at all levels of functionality and capital allocation—including both public and private aspects;
2. Financial Management of Companies—both public and private entities;
3. Firm Entry and Exit Process—ranging from startup ventures to mature businesses;
4. Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Venture Capital;
5. All other Business and Economic Endeavors that Involve Human Decision Making and Choice Under Conditions of Risk and Uncertainly;
6. Teaching and Learning—ranging from case development to other pedagogical issues.
As it is tentative, one can send other behavioral finance/economics papers as well.
The 2009 meeting details are here. It was held on Sep 23-25 2009. They have not uploaded the papers till now.
So, I thought I would just share this information with the visitors of this blog. Please spread the word.
I would wait for the papers.
BTW, the Burton Malkiel post is here.
