The29th Conference of the International Trade and Finance Association will be held in Livorno, Italy, May 29-June 1 (Wednesday to Saturday), 2019. We are delighted that Polo Universitario in Livorno and University of Pisa are hosting our 29th annual conference.


IT&FA is a multi-disciplinary association, and welcomes scholars and professionals from economics and finance, marketing and management, law, communications and other disciplines with an interest in globalization and the global economy. The conference will consist of regular competitive sessions, as well as plenary sessions dealing with high-profile issues.

We invite proposals on all aspects of international trade and finance, including such emerging issues as cyber security and economic warfare, digital free trade and e-commerce, intellectual property protections, and trade in various services. As in the past, IT&FA seeks papers on trade policy, exchange rates, investments and capital flows, banking, migration, tourism, communications, transportation, governance and law, and management and marketing. Industry-specific studies are welcome (such as agriculture, retail, textiles, and entertainment), as are proposals dealing with multilateral, regional, and national issues impacting international trade and finance. Theoretical, conceptual and empirical papers are also invited.

Program: Offers discussions of economic topics across many disciplines via speakers and panels.
Special Events: The Presidential Address, award presentations, paper/panel presentations, gala dinner, and networking opportunities.
Proceedings: The International Trade and Finance Association will publish an electronic “Papers and Proceedings” edition highlighting selected papers from the meeting. You must indicate that your paper is to be included in the proceedings.
Paper Awards: We offer US$500 for the best faculty paper submitted to the conference and US$250 for the best student paper (no faculty authors included), along with certificates confirming each.

IT&FA’s registration fee is US$300 to all participants/US$125 for students who submit initial registration materials and abstracts by January 31, 2019. The late registration fee is $350 after January 31, 20c19. This fee will cover registration, associated expenses, and one year’s membership in IT&FA.
