Who can enter?

WAIFC invites young academics from around the world to make a submission.  WAIFC is a global organization, and we aim to make this a global competition.  The Award is open to all countries, including non-WAIFC member countries.  As our focus is on finance, we particularly encourage submissions from Ph.D. students in finance, economics, mathematics, computer science, or other similar fields to participate.  We are, however, seeking new ideas, so a background in any field of study is welcome as long as your paper or essay relates to finance and meets our submission criteria.  Submissions are welcome from those in universities, research institutes, think tanks, and other similar institutions.

Multiple authors can contribute to a paper or essay, but as we seek ideas from bright young minds, at least one author must be under 35 as of 15 June 2024.

How will the winners be selected?

WAIFC will assess the papers against the following criteria: (1) novelty, (2) topicality, (3) innovative thinking, (4) scientific merit, (5) relevance for financial centers, and (6) practical applicability.

How to apply?

Applications to submit your paper or essay may be made no later than 15 May 2024 via our submission form.  Your final paper or essay must be submitted no later than 15 June 2024

Full details on who can enter, how to enter, assessment criteria, and so on are detailed within our Award Handbook.  If you have any further questions, please email

WAIFC looks forward to receiving your submissions and hopefully meeting you in Tokyo later this year.

Call for Papers – Targeting Therapies: Exploring the Cultural & Normative Dimensions of ‘Targeted’ Approaches to Biomedicine and Public Health

It is increasingly common for governments to commit, symbolically and economically, to dreams of therapeutic innovation in healthcare. This often relates to ‘targeted’ approaches, such as pharmaceuticals aimed at very specific kinds of disease (e.g. certain cancers), which might respond only to people with particular genetic variants – imagined and innovated through the idiom of ‘precision’ and ‘personalised’ medicine. At the same time, we can see other ‘targeted’ approaches to healthcare in action; for instance, psychological therapy services tailored to specific populations and interventions that stratify and construct publics in response to existing and emerging forms of illness (e.g. restrictions on the movements of groups regarded as highly vulnerable to COVID-19;
increasingly narrow stratification of mental health diagnoses etc).

Through this conference, we will critically examine the design, delivery, and implications of ‘targeted’ biomedicine and public health to help us to better understand the dynamics between science, healthcare, and society. While research from the humanities and social sciences on biomedicine and public health often keeps these domains apart, our event will seek to consider the commonalities between them. We welcome approaches from bioethics, gender studies, history, law, medical humanities, political philosophy, and science studies (among others) to explore the cultural and normative dimensions of ‘targeted’ approaches and interventions in biomedicine and public health. Through comparative analysis across these disciplines, we hope the event will help us to explore how different cultural, historical, legal, scientific, and healthcare contexts interact in the shaping and deployment of ‘targeted’ approaches.

We invite papers that consider how societal histories, traditions, and legal processes affect how medical research is funded and conducted and how healthcare is prioritised and delivered. We also look forward to presentations that will examine how law, ethics, and cultures are impacted and contoured through targeted approaches to health.

The conference will be held at University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland from May 2-3 2024; it is funded by Prof Susi Geiger’s MISFIRES ERC project (grant no. 771217) and a joint Arts and Humanities Research Council UK research fund held by Prof Martyn Pickersgill – University of Edinburgh, Dr Ilaria Galasso – Technical University of Munich, Dr Sone Erikainen – University of Aberdeen, and Prof Susi Geiger – UCD.

Submission Process:

To apply to present at this conference, please submit an abstract of around 500 words of your research to by 19 February 2024. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of February 2024. Should you have any questions prior to submission regarding the suitability of your research proposal to the conference, please contact either Prof Martyn Pickersgill ( or Prof Susi Geiger ( directly.

Travel Bursaries:

For early career researchers there are a limited number of travel bursaries available to present at this conference. Early career applicants who are interested in applying for a travel bursary can specify this in their email when submitting the abstract, and please
provide a breakdown of the anticipated cost for travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses. The travel bursary will cover a maximum of 2 nights in a hotel.

Call for Research Abstracts: Philanthropy at an Inflection Point

We invite researchers and academics to submit abstracts and research papers to be considered for the 2nd African Philanthropy Academic Conference which will take place in Dakar, Senegal on Monday 31 July to Tuesday 1 August 2023.

Important dates

  • Submission closing date – Friday, 9 June 2023
  • Notification of Acceptance – Friday, 23 June 2023
  • Conference Registration Deadline – Friday, 7 July 2023


Global events such as the war in Ukraine, slowing economies, the persistence of COVID-19, and rising nationalism continue to challenge the world order. Consequently, sectors like philanthropy have been forced to undergo a transformation challenging the established order of the ecosystem. These shifts, coupled with the myriad of issues African philanthropy is currently grappling with such as localisation, developing a south-south approach, and inward-looking (harnessing the local capacity) for resource mobilisation need a dedicated platform for deliberation. The events occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic witnessed African philanthropy responding in unprecedented ways. Technology and innovative ways of giving became ubiquitous almost overnight. However, clear disparities were also observed as some philanthropic institutions flourished while others were totally decimated and may not resurface.

Other urgent issues the sector is facing head-on include climate change, climate advocacy, climate change adaption vs climate change mitigation, governance, technology, and many other new fronts. These issues have the potential to refocus and pivot how philanthropy is practiced, lived, and experienced especially in Africa. They are simply the inflection points that will continue to shape the future of the ecosystem in Africa.

At this inflection moment, evidence is suggesting that philanthropy is gradually moving away from a relationship-driven to a value-driven system – there is a realisation for sustainability. This is changing the logic of the philanthropic field and has the potential to create an increasingly efficient social capital over time. Given the magnitude of social and environmental needs, a new way of thinking must be devised for the sector to truly realise its potential and impact. Although there has hardly been a broad consensus on efficiency and effectiveness, systematic shifts and systems thinking are likely to enable philanthropies to achieve greater impact at this inflection point.

The 2nd African Philanthropy Academic Conference will be charged with the responsibility of unpacking some of these questions and potentially devising the future for philanthropy, especially in Africa. This question and the sub-themes will be used to guide and reflect on the inflection points depicted.

Conference Details:

School of Business and AI Research Centre, Woxsen University, Hyderabad, India in collaboration with the University of St. Thomas, MN, USA is organizing the 3rd International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Processing – AIKP’23 (Scopus Indexed Conference) from 6th to 8th October 2023.

Aim & Scope of the Conference:

Artificial Intelligence & Knowledge Processing is playing a vital role in changing most of the sectors’ processes and landscape. AI has an enormous impact on various automation industries and their functioning converting traditional industries to AI-based factories. New algorithms are changing the way business processes and results are analyzed and predicted. Knowledge processing is the act of comprehending and then representing human knowledge in data structures; semantic models, which are conceptual diagrams of data as they relate to the real world; and heuristics, which are principles that lead to answers to every AI challenge. The way how a human think, knowledge processing transforms the data into knowledge and makes the machine think like a human and makes better decisions. This makes the humans work simple, but it has some ethical concerns that need to be sorted out. This AI and knowledge processing conference addresses the drawbacks and challenges in current practices in various sectors. The research area includes Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Decision Support Systems, Knowledge representation, semantics, Bigdata analytics, Intelligent systems, fuzzy-based neural networks, and other fields. 


All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science Series (Scopus).
