The Swedish House of Finance will organize the 8th workshop for PhD students in Finance on November 12-13, 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 at lunch time on the 12th and end at lunch time on the 13th. There will be a diner on Tuesday evening. The sessions will consist of PhD student presentations, each followed by a discussion from a faculty member of a Swedish institution. Alexander Ljungqvist, Professor at the Stockholm School of Economics and holder of the Stefan Persson Family Chair in Entrepreneurial Finance, will give a keynote speech during the conference.
Papers will be selected by the Program Committee. Authors will be notified of the Committee's decision by October 13, 2018. There is no workshop or submission fee. Traveling expenses and accommodation of presenting authors and discussants will be covered by the organizers.
