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 18, 2024.

We 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. We ask you not to submit a paper that has been accepted for publication in a journal or is close to being accepted. 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


 Interested authors should submit their papers (with author information or anonymized) via the submission link on the workshop web page by February 20, 2024. There is no submission fee. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by end of April 2024.
