The 4th edition is set to return to Stockholm Business School on 18 – 20 May 2022. We are aiming for a primarily in-person meeting, with speakers, discussants and session chairs in particular attending on site. Other participants will have the option to attend remotely and we will do our best to provide them with an interactive experience. Should the COVID-19 situation deteriorate, we are prepared to host the conference fully online.
From satellite images to natural language processing, the way investors source, process and trade on information is constantly evolving. The aim of this conference is to understand the ever-changing nature of financial information and its consequences for market efficiency.
We welcome all theoretical and empirical papers exploring new and perhaps unexpected sources of information, as well as developing novel tools to turn raw data into value-relevant insights. Sceptical takes, highlighting the trade-offs involved in the use of big data, machine learning algorithms and the continuing hardening of information are also welcome.
Please submit your paper through ConfTool by clicking on the link. Submission deadline is: 20 December 2021, 23:59 PST.
Program selection follows a two-stage procedure. In the first stage, all submissions will be screened by members of the reviewer team. In the second stage, shortlisted papers will be additionally evaluated by members of the program committee. We expect to accept around 20 papers for presentation and an additional 6-7 for the poster session. Please indicate during submission whether you would like your paper to be considered also for the poster session.
The conference offers a dual submission option, joint with the Review of Asset Pricing Studies and the Review of Corporate Finance Studies. Please indicate during submission whether you would like your paper to be considered (at no extra fee) for publication by either journal under the Dual Submission Program. This is a “no-fault” submission option: if RAPS or RCFS rejects the paper, the authors may submit it to any SFS journal at a later date. For details please visit: http://sfs.org/dualsubmissionpolicy/
Please note that selection for the conference program and for publication in RAPS or RCFS are independent from each other.
