The Twenty-seventh Annual Utah Winter Finance Conference will be held February 2-4, 2017. The opening reception begins Wednesday evening, February 1st. The location is the beautiful Cliff Lodge at Snowbird.
Papers will be reviewed for selection by the review committee in a double-blind referee process. Only ten
papers are selected for the UWFC each year.
PARTNERSHIP UWFC, RAPS and RCFS:
The Utah Winter Finance Conference and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies and the Review of Corporate Finance Studies announce a combined submission process. At your choice, your paper submitted to the UWFC also will be considered for publication by the RAPS or the RCFS without additional submission fee. This is a "no-fault" submission option, which means that if one of the SFS journals decides to review your paper and rejects it, you may submit to any SFS journal at a later date as if the paper was never submitted. Please see our website for the rules for submitting your paper to the RAPS or RCFS.
ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION: Paper must be submitted by September 1, 2016. There is a submission fee of $40.
Authors will be notified of paper selection in November.
CONFERENCE VIDEOTAPING: We will videotape the presentations and discussions of the 2017 UWFC (and place the videos on our website for future viewing) as was done in past years. Following the 2016 UWFC, our website experienced over 8,000 visits by 2,400+ unique visitors from 72 different countries (top 10 countries: US, Israel, United
Kingdom, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Australia, China, Taiwan and Italy).
