Call for papers Autumn 2020


30th anniversary Inquire Europe

 Autumn seminar (2020)

4-6 October 2020, Valencia, Spain


As part of its activities, Inquire Europe organizes annual seminars. A major part of the autumn 2020 seminar will be devoted to:

"Challenges for long term asset allocation over the next 30 years"

This topic includes the impact of climate change, low interest rate

and demographic changes on investment strategies


Authors, both academics and professionals in the financial industry, are invited to submit papers for presentation at the seminar. Papers should have a quantitative background, with empirical testing of models, or other practical relevance and applications. We also encourage submissions of papers also on subtopics in the broad area of Institutional Investing and Asset Management that do not fit the main topic for the seminar. The audience of the Inquire Europe seminar consists of financial professionals, mostly asset managers, all with experience in quantitative analysis of financial markets. A typical presentation will last approximately 30 minutes, plus 30 minutes of audience discussion with the audience. Papers for presentation will be selected by the program committee of Inquire Europe.

Completed papers should be sent before or on Wednesday 6 May 2020 to Theo Nijman at
(Please include a cover page with title, authors, addresses and phone numbers (cover page and paper as one PDF document).


INQUIRE will pay the travel (economy class) and lodging expenses for the speakers at the meeting.
Inquire Europe award a cash prize to the speakers that presented the best paper at the semi-annual seminar. The amount of the prize is € 4.000,=
