Malaysian Finance Association 10th Annual Conference 2008

14.03.2008
"Strengthening Malaysia's Position as a Vibrant, Innovative and Competitive Financial Hub"
5-6 JUNE 2008
Holiday Inn, Kuching, Sarawak.
The 2008 Malaysian Finance Association Conference is jointly organized by the Malaysian Finance Association and the Faculty of Economics and Business, UNIMAS.

The conference aims to provide a platform for the discussion and exchange of ideas and knowledge between academicians and practitioners. It is also hoped that the conference will enhance networking, promote interaction and collaborative works between the various groups.

In line with the current environment, this year's theme is "Strengthening Malaysia's Position as a Vibrant, Innovative and Competitive Financial Hub".

The conference will focus on the following areas of interest:
Asset Pricing
Banking
Behavioral Finance
Corporate Finance and Restructuring
Corporate Governance
Cross-Border Investments and Takeovers
Derivatives Securities
Financial Innovation and Engineering
Financial Market and Economic Development
Insurance and Takaful
International Finance
Islamic Finance and Banking
Real Estate Investment and Risk
Risk Management
Fund Management
Venture Capital
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
Professionals from finance and banking institutions, representatives from the Central Bank of Malaysia, government bodies, research institutions, professional associations, academicians, post-graduate students and interested parties are invited to participate and submit papers to be considered for presentation. The MFA conference provides a platform for discussing issues, exchanging ideas and promoting better understanding of finance-related topics. The conference also invites a list of speakers from government policy makers, top corporate leaders and academicians to share ideas with the participants.

Im Focus: First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
