Welcome from the Program Chairs

We are delighted to invite you to Frankfurt for the SMS Special Conference on Hits and Misses: Strategic Decision Making under Uncertainty, June 13-15, 2019.

For anyone heading to the European continent, Frankfurt is a familiar turnstile. As a destination, its financial, business, and institutional clout has grown alongside the German economy. It’s varied cultural profile includes the birthplace of Goethe, the cradle of German democracy, the country’s longest museum mile, along the river Main, as well as Unesco sites and wine in the nearby Rhine Valley and beyond. Below the city’s iconic skyline, one in three sports an international passport. This cosmopolitan flair mixes with local staples Grüne Soße, Ebbelwei, Riesling, and Frankfurter sausages. June is the best month to visit.

We are excited to welcome you to the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, a private business school and one of the most vibrant places for research in Europe. Many of our colleagues have decision-making as their specialist area of inquiry, from an individual to an organizational and institutional perspective, and we all look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt and conversing with you about strategies for an uncertain world.
