Call For Papers

The 4th Indonesian Financial Management Association (IFMA) Conference will be held at Melia Purosani Hotel, Yogyakarta, Indonesia on December 14-15, 2016. The program committee cordially invites paper submissions from all areas of finance.

Yogyakarta, or more popularly known as “Jogja”, is one of the oldest cities in Indonesia. Yogyakarta has many heritage buildings and monuments, including the must-see attraction of Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono’s palace, better known as “Kraton”. Yogyakarta is the most popular tourist destination on Java, thanks to its proximity to the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan. Borobudur, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a Buddhist temple complex dating from the 9th century. It is the single largest Buddhist structure anywhere on earth, and few who visit fail to be taken by both the scale of place and the remarkable attention to detail that went into the construction. The slightly older Prambanan is a collection of massive Hindu temples built in the 8th century. In almost any other country, a magnificent ancient monument on the scale of Prambanan would quickly be designated a national symbol. In Indonesia, it is somewhat overshadowed by the nearby Borobudur. The two sites are quite different in style with Prambanan being a collection of sharp, jaggedly sculpted towers in contrast to the vast horizontal bulk of Borobudur, but both are awe inspiring just the same.
