The 25th Annual Conference on Finance and Accounting

Faculty of Finance and Accounting


Welcome to ACFA 2024

The Faculty of Finance and Accounting of Prague University of Economics and Business is delighted to host The 25th Annual Conference on Finance and Accounting (ACFA 2024). The Conference takes place on 30-31 May 2024.

The Conference offers scholars an opportunity to present research-in-progress and (almost) finished papers. The Conference’s platform enables researchers from all over the world to share their thoughts and visions, discuss contemporary development in the field and get, thus, valuable feedback. This could be useful for emerging researchers, especially PhD students, who can submit their papers for the special PhD. Track.

We encourage all researchers 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 25th Annual Conference on Finance and Accounting in June 2024.
