A Call for Bids for the 2013 SFS Finance Cavalcade
Bids should be sent by September 1, 2011.
The Society for Financial Studies is seeking bids to cohost the 2013 Finance Cavalcade. 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 five day conference covering all areas of finance. This year’s format featured an hour per paper and two 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. We currently expect the 2013 Cavalcade to take place in the late spring or early summer.
At a minimum, bids must include information about
• Available classroom facilities
• Available hotel facilities
• Ability to sponsor some or all meals, including breakfasts, lunches and dinners
• Ability to sponsor printing and other participant handouts
• Local logistical support
If you are interested in either submitting a proposal or obtaining additional information contact Wayne Ferson, Paolo Fulghieri, or David Hirshleifer.
