The Financial Intermediation Research Society (FIRS) will be holding its next conference on May 29-31, 2024, in Berlin, Germany.  The conference will begin in the afternoon of Wednesday, May 29, and it will conclude late in the afternoon on Friday, May 31.  The keynote address will be given by Albert S. “Pete” Kyle, the Charles E. Smith Chair Professor of Finance at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.

The conference venue is the InterContinental Berlin.  Overlooking the famous Tiergarten Park in the embassy district and only a short stroll from the iconic Brandenburg Gate, the recently renovated InterContinental Berlin is a perfect base for exploring a city that is both rich in history and at the epicenter of modern culture.  It is about 20 miles from the Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER).  A conference dinner will take place in the evening of Thursday, May 30.
