ICMA Centre to host 2013 European Financial Management Association annual meeting

This annual event is one of the largest and most prominent academic conferences on finance in Europe and 2013 will be the first time the University of Reading will have hosted the event. In 2012 the conference was held at the University of Barcelona in Spain.

Professor John Campbell, Chair of the Economics Department at Harvard University has been announced as the keynote speaker for the 2013 meeting. The expectation is that close to 300 papers will be presented in total across the four days. The call for papers for the 2013 conference is now open and details will soon be available at our dedicated conference website.

‘Hosting such a prestigious event, where all financial eyes across Europe will be on us for a week, is an amazing opportunity for both our staff and students to be exposed to the highest level of discussion, interpretation and policy development of our time,’ said Dr Simone Varotto, Senior Lecturer in Finance at the ICMA Centre and Chair of the 2013 EFMA conference, ‘Listening to Professor Campbell alone discuss finance is a privilege, never mind the hundreds of other great financial minds that will be gathered together.’

The EFMA was founded in 1994 to encourage and disseminate knowledge about financial decision making in all areas of finance as they specifically relate to European corporations, financial institutions and capital markets. The membership of the EFMA includes academics, practitioners and students from across Europe and the rest of the world.

Talk on “Steve Jobs’ last gift and yoga meditation”

What does yoga meditation have to do with the late Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple and one of the most creative and innovative entrepreneurs of our time? Before his passing in 2011 he made arrangements that all those attending his memorial service at Stanford University should receive a copy of “Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda, a spiritual classic which he said he had read once a year since he had first become acquainted with the book. “There has been nothing before, written in English or in any other European language, like this presentation of Yoga” writes Columbia University Press, while the New York Times defines it “A rare account”.
