A new paper by Sebastian Reinartz and Daniel Urban ranks 45 finance conferences based on subsequent success of papers presented at those conferences in getting published in top journals. They find that 62% of SFS Cavalcade papers were subsequently published in the top 3 finance journals, compared to 40% for the AFA, 28% for the WFA, 21% for FIRS, and 21% for the EFA. Thus, they conclude that “the Society for Financial Studies (SFS) Finance Cavalcade conference is the best large finance conference according to the subsequent publication rates in TOP3 finance journals.” See their paper “Finance Conference Quality and Publication Success: A Conference Ranking” available on SSRN.
The Cavalcade 2016 submission period is now open. To submit, please visit Cavalcade 2016. The deadline for submissions is December 7, 2015.

We are sad to report that Rick Green died on October 9th due to cancer. He was a Professor of Financial Economics and the Richard M. and Margaret S. Cyert Chair at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. He was a great friend, colleague, and mentor to many. He made intellectual contributions in a wide range of areas and particularly in mutual funds, market microstructure, and taxation. The Society for Financial Studies appreciates his excellent service as SFS President 2012-2014, as SFS Vice President 1997-1999, as an RFS Co-Editor 1990-1994, and as an RFS Assistant Editor 1989-1990. The profession benefited in many other ways, including his service as Editor of the Journal of Finance 2000-2003, President of the American Finance Association 2006, and President of the Western Finance Association 1999-2000. Rick was always friendly, thoughtful, and supportive. Our lives and the academic finance profession are better for having known him.
SFS President Richard Green welcomes the participants of the 2014 SFS Finance Cavalcade.
