Covid-19 Update to Conference Timing:
The 24th Annual International Real Options Conference
will be held in
Porto, Portugal, in August 2020 or Jun
e/July 2021

The Covid-19 virus has upset planning of almost all conferences, the it also impacts upon the Annual International Real Options Conference. Our earlier plans to hold the conference in July 1-4, 2020 are not tenable. We have acquired the real option to hold the conference in Porto at one of two later dates:

  • August 26 - 29, 2020
  • June 30 - July 3, 2021

We are deferring the registration deadline for the earlier date to June 15, 2020, by which time we will have decided and announced which of the two dates has been selected for the delayed conference.

Organized by

Keynote Speaker: Erwan Morellec
