The organizing committee invites submissions of theoretical and empirical papers in all areas of corporate finance from any university. The conference will bring together researchers to facilitate the discussion and development of new ideas in corporate finance in a stimulating and relaxing environment. The conference is an initiative of the Benelux Corporate Finance Network.

The academic program will consist of regular sessions (with discussants) and rapid-fire sessions (without discussants).
