    We invite submissions to the 3rd Toronto Fintech Conference, an event held every 18 months where scholars in the fields of strategy/management, economics/finance, entrepreneurship/innovation, organization theory/sociology, and law/public policy discuss their research on the rise, diffusion, and disruptive potential of financial technologies ("fintech").

    The Toronto Fintech Conference has three objectives:

    1/ To provide a networking opportunity for the fast-growing academic community of scholars (both professors and PhD students) who research fintech topics across a range of related disciplines. 

    2/ To discuss cutting-edge research, both theoretical and empirical, which address important issues related to the antecedents and consequences of decentralization, disintermediation, and digitization in the fintech sector and beyond. The ultimate goal is to work together toward publication at top journals.

    3/ To facilitate a dialogue between academia and public & private sectors, by bringing academics, executives, entrepreneurs, and policymakers together. 

    The Conference is supported by the Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab at Ivey Business School, which proudly offers five travel grants of CAD$750 for the top PhD student papers accepted at by our Program Committee and a CAD$2,000 cash prize for the Best Fintech Paper. A CAD$750 cash prize will reward the Best Cryptoeconomics Paper.

    Authors can submit either a full working paper or a 5-page proposal, to be followed by a 30-40 page full paper, should the proposal be accepted. 

    Submission deadline: June 15, 2020.

    The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by our Program Committee:
