Dear Colleagues,

    After careful consideration and discussion of the risk and uncertainty related to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, the ICOAF Conference organizers have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s International Conference on Accounting and Finance (ICOAF) Conference, originally scheduled on 11-12 June, 2020 to late June/early July, 2021. 

    Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by these unforeseen circumstances. This decision is mostly motivated by the ICOAF's strong commitment to ensure the safety of all participants. Health, safety and travel experience of all participants are our highest priority.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us aticoaf@due.edu.vn.   

    We would like to take this opportunity to express our deep appreciation for your interest in and support for the past and current ICOAF conferences. We will work with our partners to plan next year’s conference. The details of the next year’s conference will be announced later. 

    We wish you good health and safety in this difficult time.
