Welcome to ACFA 2023

The Faculty of Finance and Accounting of Prague University of Economics and Business is delighted to host The 24th Annual Conference on Finance and Accounting (ACFA 2023). The Conference takes place on 1-2 June 2023.

The Conference offers an opportunity for scholars to present both research-in-progress or almost finished papers. The Conference’s platform enables researches from all over the world to share their thoughts, visions, to discuss contemporary development in the field and get, thus, a valuable feedback. This could be useful for emerging researchers and especially for Ph.D. students, who can submit their papers for the special Ph.D. Track. Another benefit of being an ACFA participant are rich publication opportunities, including special issues in cooperation with the Emerging Markets Finance and Trade or the European Financial and Accounting Journal. Alternatively, the authors may publish through conference proceedings.

We encourage both senior researchers and doctoral students to submit the paper to any of the Conference Scientific Sessions depending on their research interest.

Registrations and paper submissions are made through the Submission system.

We look forward to meeting all interested parties during the The 24th Annual Conference on Finance and Accounting in June 2023.
