Dresden University of Technology is organizing a Paper Development Workshop together with Carol Alexander from University of Sussex and Denis Schweizer from Concordia University. We invite interested scholars to apply to present and discuss their current research on Generative AI in Finance. The workshop will take place in person on July 5, 2024 in Dresden.

The aim of the paper development workshop is to feature articles at the forefront of Generative AI research across a broad spectrum of interest including, but not limited to, corporate finance, fintech, digital finance, asset pricing, financial stability, banking, risk management, portfolio management, behavioral finance, personal finance, and real estate — all within the context of viable existing or potential future applications of Generative AI.

The workshop is associated with a Special Issue in the Journal of Banking and Finance on Generative AI in Finance and aims to provide authors with valuable insights from the editorial team prior to submission. Acceptance for presentation at the Paper Development Workshop is not a prerequisite for submission to the Special Issue and in no way guarantees acceptance to the Special Issue.
