The China International Conference in Finance (CICF) provides an open platform to bring together scholars worldwide to present current research and stimulate exchanges on new developments in finance. Over the years, CICF has grown to be one of the leading conferences in financial research in the world. The next conference will be held from July 6 to 9, 2021 in two combined formats: online and onsite in the city of Shanghai, in consideration of the on-going COVID19 pandemic.
