Annual International Conference on Real Options: Theory Meets Practice

The 24th Annual International Real Options Conference
September 2-4, 2021

Porto, Portugal

New Date

The Covid-19 virus has upset planning of almost all conferences, and it also impacts upon the Annual International Real Options Conference. Our earlier plans to hold the conference in July 1-4, 2020 had to be cancelled, and we have re-scheduled it to September 2-4, 2021, as we aim to be better prepared for a physical meeting.

Conference Venue and Format Planning

The conference will be Remote via Zoom on Thursday September 2, and In-Person on September 3 and 4.

We will closely monitor COVID-19 developments and travel restrictions, and adjust the format to involve more Zoom sessions, if needed.

To accommodate the flexibility needed for possible remote sessions, the Remote Session Fee is €100 (€120 after May 27), and the In-person Attendance Fee of €540 is in two installments: €100 (before May 27, €120 after May 27) and €440 on July 1, when it will be clear whether in-person attendance is feasible. If the first installment is not made by May 27, the total In-person Attendance Fee rises to €650. All fees must be paid by July 1, 2021, in order to be able to participate in the Conference.
