The Villanova School of Business invites finance researchers to attend the Annual VSB Mid-Atlantic Research Conference in Finance (MARC). This one-day, one-track MARC meeting on Friday, March 25, 2022, will be held at Bartley Hall, Villanova University, from 8:15 am until 5:00 pm. Should we not be able to gather in person, the conference will be held online. We will be sharing high quality research papers in all areas of finance. The conference will include Prof. Will Goetzmann of Yale University as our keynote luncheon speaker. We will further welcome two additional distinguished speakers: Michelle Lowry (Drexel Univ.) and Turan Bali (Georgetown Univ.).
Previous conferences have featured presentations by keynote speakers such as Professors Itay Goldstein, Viral Acharya, Franklin Allen, David Denis, Darrell Duffie, Mark Flannery, Andrew Karolyi, “Pete” Kyle, Michael Lemmon, Robert Stambaugh, Laura Starks, Phil Strahan, Rene Stulz, Anjan Thakor, and Ingrid Werner.
There will be several sessions during the day, with each session including 2-3 papers that are selected, after peer review, for inclusion in the conference. There will also be an Outstanding Paper Award. This is a selective and competitive process, but we look for broad participation among the many excellent academic institutions in the Mid-Atlantic region and around the world. All topics in finance will be considered.
We also plan to co-host a second day of conference programming with the addition of the Democratize Quant Conference, which will be held the day prior to the MARC conference on March 24, 2022, and will be more practitioner-oriented, while still maintaining a high degree of depth and an intimate atmosphere that facilitates networking and discussion among practitioners and academic researchers.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCESS: Electronic submissions, along with a $50 submission fee, should be uploaded via: https://vsbevents.villanova.edu/635645.
The deadline for submission is December 15, 2021. Authors will be notified on or before February 1, 2022, and authors of accepted papers will be expected to present their papers during the conference on March 25, 2022.
