The 7th Vietnam Symposium in Banking and Finance (VSBF2022), jointly organized by the Association of Vietnamese Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global), the Banking Academy of Vietnam (Hanoi), and the International Society for the Advancement of Financial Economics (ISAFE) in partnership with the IPAG Business School and Massey University will take place on 27 – 29 October 2022, in Hanoi, Vietnam. It aims at providing academics, doctoral students, and practitioners with a forum for presenting their research findings and discussing current and challenging issues in banking, finance, money and financial macroeconomics. The Symposium is also an ideal occasion for Vietnamese scholars to exchange research experiences and develop research projects with their international colleagues.

The symposium organizers welcome submissions of theoretical and empirical research papers (English only and in PDF files) in all areas of banking and finance for presentation. See the Call for Papers for more details on the potential topics.
