The IFABS Asia 2017 Ningbo Conference, a joint conference VINS co-hosted, was successfully held on 31 August-2 September, 2017.
The conference was a great success with around 200 international delegates presenting over 2 days from academia, central banks, international organisations and the industry. The first day of the conference also welcomed around 200 local delegates from Ningbo government and various financial institutions. It received excellent feedback from the delegates. Mr.Xin Zhou, the Executive Director of VINS, attended this conference.
The conference had excellent keynote presentations by Professor Robert Engle, Mr Guan Jianzhong, Dr Alfred Schipke and Mr Jesper Berg. The Conference Chairs, Scientific Committee, Awards Committee and all session chairs and special session and panel organisers made extraordinary contributions to this event.
The success of this conference has owed much to the UNNC team, the IFABS Operations team and the UNNC student volunteers.
During this conference, two participants were chosen as the acceptors of Best Paper Awards: IFABS Asia 2017 Ningbo Best Paper Award went to Dr Vladimir Ivanov, US Securities and Exchange Commission, USA, and IFABS Asia 2017 Ningbo Best PhD Paper Award went to Mr Chao Wang, Warwick Business School, UK.
