These emerging technologies are disrupting the financial sector as well as other industries (e.g., logistics, education, legal industry, international trade), and are described by some as the new fourth industrial revolution. It is time for professionals and scholars to have an open dialogue about the impact of these technologies on management practice and academic research. The conference bring together researchers and experts in different fields to co-create knowledge related to FinTech innovations.
