The objective of this workshop is to present state-of-the-art academic research on topics related to strategic interaction in corporate finance. There will be one track of presentations over the course of two days, with a small number of papers on the program to allow for ample time for discussions and to create a stimulating environment. Each paper will have a discussant. The workshop will start with a welcome reception on the evening of Sunday August 13, 2023.

The organizers welcome submissions from all areas of corporate finance, in particular related to the strategic interaction between different agents (such as managers, investors, financial institutions, rating agencies), and their objectives. Papers in an early stage will also be considered. Both theoretical and empirical papers are welcome.

Sample topic areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Interaction between firms’ investment and financing decisions
  • Real implications of financial contracts
  • Conflicts of interest between the firm’s stakeholders
  • Real options signaling games
  • Bargaining along the supply chain
  • Interdependence between disclosure and corporate finance
  • Feedback between the firm and financial markets
  • Feedback effects of ratings
  • Corporate governance and shareholder voting
  • Strategic decisions in corporate takeovers

Submission: Interested authors should submit their papers (with author information or anonymized) as a pdf-file by February 15, 2023, to corpfin@econ.au.dk. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by end of April 2023. 

Papers that have been accepted for publication in a journal or is close to being accepted will not be accepted for the workshop.

Further Information: The workshop is partially funded by a grant from the Independent Research Fund Denmark, which allows us to invite several keynote speakers and fund some of the other workshop expenses. We expect regular participants to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.
