Research Seminars

The Swinburne Accounting, Economics and Finance (AEF) group has conducted an active and successful series of research seminars on a wide variety of topics for staffs and PhD students since 2014. AEF conducts about ten research seminars per year (one research seminar every month, except December and January) and invites external staff in the field of Accounting, Economics and Finance to present their recent or ongoing projects. We invite both established researchers and innovative early career colleagues to present their research at the seminars. The series hosts presenters from other universities in Australia and overseas.

The monthly research seminars run from February to November from 11.30am to 1pm and consist of a formal research presentation followed by an open forum style discussion with audience questions. For more information about AEF research seminars, contact our research seminar coordinator Dr Sarod Khandaker.
