The COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting the planet and made impossible to hold the IRMC annual meeting this June, as scheduled in Krakow. The organizing committee has decided to hold the IRMC 2020 as our first Virtual Conference on October 9-10, 2020 and to postpone IRMC Krakow to next June 2021.  We have selected the platform Whova as technical partner for the event and we are reopening the call for papers until August 24, 2020. Fundação Dom Cabral (Brazil) has joined in the role of South American HUB for the conference.

The topic of the conference has changed to: Managing Global Risks: The COVID-19 Pandemic “New Normal” and the Challenges for a Sustainable Economic Environment”.

A New special session dedicated to “COVID-19’s Impact on Global Financial Stability and Risk Management practices” has been organized. Being aware that event studies on the Covid-19 pandemic are still in an early phase of development, the submission to the special session dedicated to COVID-19 can be either an early draft of the paper or anextended abstract submitted by September 10.  This special session invites submissions related to the impact of the pandemic on sovereign institutions, economic consequences and on financial institutions and markets.
