Hybrid Conference Announcement

Dear colleagues

In order to have a successful conference this coming July we have decided to hold the conference in a hybrid format. This will provide the opportunity for those who will be unable to travel to Rethymno to be able to participate on-line and have their paper presented and discussed. We, of course, hope to have as many participants as possible to attend the 25th ICMAIF in person and enjoy Crete at its best.

Please note that for those attending on-line there will be a reduced registration fee of 100 euro

We look forward to receiving your submission to the conference.

The Organizing Committee.

Change of ICMAIF Conference Dates

Dear Colleagues and participants

We hope that you are well and safe.

Given that the situation with COVID-19 is still although the vaccination of the population is underway we decided that the conference is moved to new dates 29-31 of July 2021 as we believe that by that time it would be feasible to hold the conference with participation in person. Please also note that the deadline for papers submission has been changed to 31 March 2021.

Stay well and we hope we see you the coming summer in Rethymno.

Ansgar H. Belke
We are very sad to inform the community of ICMAIF that Ansgar Belke passed away completely unexpectedly on Wednesday 22 of July 2020.

Ansgar was a true friend and a great supporter of the conference and Crete. All of us who knew him and worked with him will miss him a lot. Our thoughts are with his wife, children and family.

24th ICMAIF conference cancellation due to COVID-19

Due to recent decisions of the Greek government that prohibit the organizing of conferences and workshops for the next months, the 24th ICMAIF conference will have to be CANCELLED.

We have worked very hard to have the conference be held, but unfortunately the decision of the Ministry of Education leaves us with no choice but to cancel the conference.

We would like to let you know that we have already set the dates for next year which are 27-29 May 2021. For the next year’s conference there will be a Special Issue of the Journal of Financial Stability.

There will be NO automatic transfer of the accepted papers to 2021.
