CALL FOR ACADEMIC PRESENTERS OF ORIGINAL RESEARCH
Monday, April 23, 2012 · Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Visa Inc. are holding the Sixth Annual Global Financial Literacy and Education Summit and invite academics to submit a proposal to present original research on financial literacy and behavioral economics.
The Summit will take place April 23, 2012 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. At the Summit, we will hold two break-out sessions, during which we invite you to unveil the details of your important research in the area of financial literacy and behavioral economics. Your travel and participation will be compensated.
The audience will include individuals from around the world whose work is focused on financial literacy. The premise of this year's program is to address potential solutions to improving financial literacy for people of all ages, around the world. The Summit will focus on how global governments and financial education leaders can develop these solutions to positively impact global financial literacy efforts.
To submit a speaker proposal, you can access the form below. The deadline for submissions is February 10, 2012.
The premise of this year's Summit is to address potential solutions to improving financial literacy for people of all ages, around the world. An important piece of the program is to showcase the most current relevant research and allow participants to learn. To encourage discussion and cross-fertilization of ideas, the size of the conference is deliberately kept small. The Summit agenda includes a keynote address; a panel discussion involving global experts in financial literacy; a presentation of current research; break-out sessions for further discussion.
Scholars from multiple disciplines are invited to submit research papers or proposals. This format supports the formal presentation of a fully developed manuscript based on original theoretical or empirical research in the areas of financial literacy and behavioral economics. The unique research will be unveiled during a break-out session dedicated specifically for this purpose and with the consent of the applicant, Summit co-hosts will likely seek to republish the research in a notable publication.
- Travel and participation will be compensated, up to $5,000.
- Proposals must be submitted and presented in English.
- All proposals will be evaluated by the following criteria:
- Originality and timeliness of the presentation material
- Innovation and new approaches to current and emerging issues
- Completeness and accuracy of the proposal format and supporting documentation
- Significance and depth of content
- The professional experience and background of the presenter
- Proposals must be received by February 10, 2012.
- Questions may be directed to Stephanie@practicalmoneyskills.com.
