We solicit submission of empirical and theoretical papers in all areas of finance. We are especially interested in completed papers that have not yet been presented at major conferences. The conference has historically included very strong papers and was recently ranked first among all conferences for percentage of papers published in a top 3 finance journal.

The submission deadline is April 1, 2023. Authors will be notified of paper selection by May 1, 2023. There is a $50 submission fee per paper. Papers may be submitted electronically using the submission form.

The conference fee of $250 includes meals that begin with a kickoff dinner on Thursday, August 3 and conclude with lunch on Saturday, August 5. Friday, August 4 will be a full day of author and discussant presentations, including a talk from Eric Sorensen, Ph.D., President and CEO of PanAgora Asset Management and former finance department chair at the University of Arizona, and a keynote address by Toni Whited, the Dale L. Dykema Professor of Business Administration at Michigan Ross, with a conference dinner to follow. There will be an additional half day of presentations the morning of Saturday, August 5. Participants are responsible for airfare and lodging. We have secured a block of rooms at a special conference rate at Eugene's premier hotel, Inn at the 5th.

August is a particularly pleasant time of year to visit Eugene and the Pacific Northwest more generally. There are many nearby outdoor and recreational activities including hiking, biking, wine tasting, and more. We will be organizing a rafting trip on the McKenzie River on Saturday afternoon for interested participants.
