Theme: FinTech in the Face of Covid-19
August 20-21, 2021
The International Conference on Smart Finance (ICSF) is a platform for academic scholars and industry leaders to connect and communicate on how to harness financial technology.
We define Smart Finance as research and development in the intersection of business intelligence (big data analytics and data science) and new finance (P2P lending, crowd funding, supply chain finance, and e-payment systems). The main objective of ICSF is to provide a much-needed platform for in-depth exchange of ideas and solutions among industry leaders, academic leaders, and government officials on how to harness Smart Finance.

Information Technology and Management
Information Technology and Management explores the many different technologies inherent in the field of information technology and their impact on information systems design, functionality, operations, and management. The journal takes a broad view of information systems as systems that not only include machines but human beings as well.
