The Swedish House of Finance will organize the 6th workshop for PhD students in finance on November 14-15, 2017 in Stockholm.
The workshop offers students from Swedish academic institutions the possibility to present their research and get feedback from faculty and fellow students. The workshop is meant to bring together PhD students and faculty in finance from all Sweden to share and discuss their work.
Theoretical and empirical papers in all areas of finance are welcome. Completed as well as preliminary drafts will be considered, and submissions of papers written solely by PhD students are particularly encouraged.
The workshop will start around noon on Tuesday, November 14th, and finish with a lunch on Wednesday, November 15th. There will be a dinner on Tuesday evening. The sessions will consist of PhD student presentations, each followed by a discussion from a faculty member of a Swedish institution. Per Strömberg, the SSE Centennial Professor of Finance and Private Equity, will give a short keynote speech about practical aspects of academic research.
Papers will be selected based on a review by the Program Committee. Authors will be notified of the Program Committee's decision by October 22, 2017. There is no workshop or submission fee. Traveling expenses and accommodation of presenting authors and discussants will be covered by the organizers.
