The general theme of the Conference will be the "Leading Issues in International Trade and Finance,” and the conference will consist of regular competitive sessions as well as plenary sessions dealing with high-profile issues.

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.

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.   In light of the overall conference theme, participants are encouraged to propose papers examining the past and considering the future prospects of issues involving the Trans Pacific Partnership, the WTO, the European Union, and other international institutions, negotiations, and agreements.    

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, 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.


IT&FA is offering a special, discounted registration fee of $300 to all participants who submit initial registration materials and abstracts by January 31, 2016. The late registration fee is $350. This fee will cover registration and an opening reception, two lunches, coffee breaks, one banquet, and one-year’s membership in IT&FA. The conference will open with a reception on Sunday, May 22, hold sessions on Monday and Tuesday including a banquet on Tuesday evening, and conclude with final sessions or a group event on Wednesday, May 25. Those planning to depart on Thursday, May 26, will have time to investigate the unique circumstances that connect Los Angeles to the evolving global economy, attracting large numbers of international visitors each year. These include Hollywood, world-class cultural and sports facilities, beautiful parks, and superior shopping.

IT&FA seeks both proposals for individual papers and for complete sessions. Complete sessions should have three to four papers. In the case of multiple authors for a paper, at least one author must register for the conference. No participant will be permitted to present more than two papers.
