This will be a high-quality conference with a limited number of papers on corporate finance, financial intermediation and household finance topics. Our aim is to bring together a select group of top-quality researchers to present and discuss cutting-edge papers in the field. We welcome submissions in all areas of corporate finance, financial intermediation and household finance.Because of the Covid-19 situation, the 2021 conference will be fully online, and sessions will be held on Zoom. We hope to revive the in-person conference starting in 2022. The sessions will be arranged by the RCFS Editors (Andrew Ellul, Isil Erel, Camelia Kuhnen, and Uday Rajan). We welcome both empirical and theoretical papers in corporate finance. Special Session on “Discrimination, Disparities, and Diversityin Finance”.

We plan to have aspecial session at the conference on the theme “Discrimination, Disparities, and Diversity in Finance” At this stage, we are calling for Registered Reports on subjects related to this theme in the areas of corporate finance, household finance, and financial intermediation. Possible topics include gender-based and race-based discrimination and inequality, as well as diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Please see our Call for Registered Reports for more details. After the conference, a small set of selected proposals will be granted in-principle acceptance for publication in the RCFS.
