New This Year!
AFFECT (Academic Female Finance Committee) will host a breakfast on Monday, May 16 at 7:30am. AFFECT formed recently to promote gender equality in the finance profession, to facilitate networking among women, to provide mentoring of women, and to conduct research on the standing of women and differences in the career paths of men versus women in finance.  At the breakfast, we plan to discuss issues that may be of particular interest to women who are doing research and teaching in finance, to talk more about what AFFECT is doing, and to conduct a short survey regarding issues related to peoples’ experiences within the academic field of finance.  All are welcome.

Submissions: The submission period ended December 7. The submission fee was $50. For papers in which ALL co-authors are doctoral students, the submission fee was waived. Important Note: Authors of accepted papers must be able to attend their session regardless of which day the session is scheduled. If an author cannot make it to the scheduled time, the conference reserves the right to pull the paper. The submitted paper must not have been accepted (or conditionally accepted) at a journal or have been presented (or be scheduled to be presented) at the WFA or AFA. You may read the Call for Papers at Cavalcade 2016 Call For Papers.

Conference Dual Submission Option: You may elect dual submission to either The Review of Corporate Finance Studies or The Review of Asset Pricing Studies. To select dual submission, select Dual RAPS or Dual RCFS under “Category of Submission” in Step 2. If the journal you select decides not to send your paper out for review, the editor may refer your paper to the other journal, if appropriate, or to The Review of Financial Studies, for possible review. Thus, by selecting the dual submission option, you have implicitly agreed to be reviewed by any of the three SFS journals. Please see our Dual Submission Policy.

Conference Chairs

Chair: Hanno Lustig (Stanford University)
Vice Chair: Heitor Almeida (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Associate Chair: Amir Yaron (University of Pennsylvania)
SFS Advisory Chairs: Matthew Spiegel (Yale University) and Laura Starks (University of Texas at Austin)

This conference is a joint project of the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies. The SFS Finance Cavalcade is a 2.5-3.0 day conference covering all areas of finance. The format is 55 minutes per paper with six-to-nine parallel sessions. Our goal is to provide a setting that produces the kind of in-depth participation of a smaller conference while accommodating the variety of papers of a larger one. The host school’s faculty and Ph.D. students receive complimentary registration to the conference and all events.
