The aim of the conference series is to attract current research papers of the highest scholarly quality in the field of corporate governance. The conferences are primarily ‘academic to academic’ events with some participants from industry and the public sector including the practitioner partners of GCGC and other invited panelists. The current practitioner partners are the European Investment Bank (EIB), Zurich Insurance Group, and Japan Exchange Group (JPX).

Attendance at this event was by invitation only. Researchers were invited to submit recent papers or extended abstracts and selected papers were presented at the conference. In addition, there were two panel discussions involving participants from industry and the public sector.
