The Organising Committee for this symposium consists of: Vikrant Vig (London Business School and CEPR), Norman Schuerhoff (Université de Lausanne and CEPR) and Dmitry Livdan (University of California, Berkeley). This call for papers invites you to express your interest in attending this symposium, or to submit a paper proposal in any area of financial economics and related fields.
The meeting will include daily seminars in the morning, in which participants present their work, as well as less formal evening seminars scheduled at the beginning of the Symposium. A substantial amount of time is reserved for independent work and collaborative research, which provides participants with a unique opportunity to interact and discuss each other’s research.
In addition, five mornings will be devoted to ‘focus sessions’, each of which concentrates on some recent developments in corporate finance (week one: 20-24 July) and asset pricing (week two: 27-31 July).
The focus sessions for the corporate finance week are organised by Vikrant Vig (London Business School and CEPR) on the theme of “Financial Regulation”, Patrick Bolton (Columbia Business School and CEPR) on the theme of “Sustainable Finance” and José-Luis Peydró (Imperial College, London and CEPR) on the theme of “Inequality and Central Bank Policies”.
The focus sessions for the asset pricing week are organised by Jonathan Berk (Stanford) and Johan Walden (University of Lausanne, UC Berkeley, and SFI). One of the themes will focus on “Performance Measurement”. The other theme is “Climate Change and Financial Economics”.
A number of places at the symposium are specifically reserved for younger European scholars (based in Europe or overseas), who are especially encouraged to apply. Senior researchers are therefore requested to pass this information on to junior colleagues working in finance and related fields.
During the online submission process, you will also be asked to indicate which week you would like to attend and whether you would be interested in attending even if your paper was not selected. We also ask that you submit a link to your current CV.
The organisers will aim to notify successful applicants by April 2020.
