Call for Papers

You are invited to participate and/or submit papers to the “Fourth Israel Conference in Behavioral Finance” which will be held in Tel Aviv on Sunday, June 26 - Monday, June 27, 2022. The Conference is sponsored by The Tel Aviv-Yaffo Academic College and organized by the recently established Israeli Association of Behavioral Finance (IABF).


The IABF was established in June 2021 by former organizers of the first three Israeli conferences in behavioral finance: Itzhak Venezia (president), Rachel Calipha (vice president), Sasson Bar Yosef, Rachel Shalom-Gilo, together with Jacob Oded and Yaron Lahav. The IABF was established to organize activities promoting behavioral and experimental finance research. The conference will serve as a catapult for enhancing the IABF scope both in membership and events, which we hope will result in more future productive events.


Because of uncertainties about future pandemic-related travel and quarantine restrictions, the conference will be held in a hybrid format. Few papers will be presented in person in Tel Aviv, and some will be presented via Zoom. All participants could choose to participate by Zoom or in person.


A limited number of submitted papers will be presented in all areas of behavioral finance, including its applications to the theory of the firm, individual and professional investors, experimental finance, financial markets, international finance, and ESG investing.


Paper submission and registration: Please send a complete paper in PDF or Word format via e-mail to:  The deadline for submission is March 15th, 2022.  There is no submission fee. Notification of acceptance will be sent by April 15th, 2022. In your application, please state your name, affiliation, and whether you would like to participate online or in-person (this is not a commitment; you could later change your mind). Registration could also be made via the conference site:
