Because of continuing challenges due to the pandemic the conference will take place virtually. It will take place on June 4-6, 2021 and the session times will be coordinated to U.S. Eastern Daylight Time.

The conference will begin with a brief welcome midday on Friday, June 4th, and conclude in the afternoon on Sunday June 6.   In addition to a very high quality program of academic sessions, there will be a FIRS business lunch session on Saturday, June 5th, and the keynote address session at lunchtime on Sunday, June 6th.

The keynote speech is by Anjan Thakor, John E. Simon Professor of Finance at the Olin School at the Washington University in St. Louis.  Professor Thakor is also a Founding Director and former President of FIRS.

Due to exigent circumstances, the conference will be online, and the registration fee for the 2021 conference is only $100. Session chairs and discussants will not be charged a registration fee for this year, and those who have already paid should please wait patiently for a refund.
