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: The taming of the light screw

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.

The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...

Im Focus: Magnetic micro-boats

Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.

The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...

Im Focus: Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.

Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...

Im Focus: Stellar cartography

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.

A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...

Im Focus: Heading towards a tsunami of light

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
