SFS Cavalcade North America 2017


Vanderbilt University – Nashville, TN
May 15-18, 2017 

Decisions: If you submitted a paper, you can expect to receive the decision by February 10.

Hosted by the Financial Markets Research Center at the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University. Note: SFS Cavalcade North America 2017 will begin on a Monday to account for Mother’s Day. This differs from Cavalcade 2016, which began on a Sunday.

The SFS Cavalcade is a 3.0 day conference covering all areas of finance. The format is 55 minutes per paper with eight-to-eleven 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. The SFS Cavalcade conference is a joint project of the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies.

Submission: Submissions were accepted through December 7. The submission fee was $50. 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/AFA. For papers in which ALL co-authors are doctoral students, the submission fee will be waived.

Conference Dual Submission Option: You may elect dual submission to either The Review of Corporate Finance Studies or The Review of Asset Pricing StudiesIf you wish to be considered for dual submission, please ensure you select the appropriate category while submitting. 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.

Registration: Registration is now open via the conference link.
Early registration ends April 8, 2017.  Early registration prices are $100 for SFS members and $125 for nonmembers.  Beginning April 9, 2017, prices increase to $140 for SFS members and $165 for nonmembers.   Doctoral students and Vanderbilt University faculty members receive complimentary registration.
