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.
We will webcast live the presentations and discussions of the 2013 UWFC (and store the videos on our website for future
viewing) as was done in past years. Following the 2012 UWFC, our website experienced a total of 33,648 visits by 5,125
unique visitors from 94 different countries (top 10 countries: US, China, Japan, France, UK, Germany, Ukraine, India,
Russia, and Canada).
BEST PAPER AWARD:
There is a $1,000 best paper award. The best paper is selected by a vote of the participants at the end of the last session.SHMUEL KANDEL AWARD FOR AN OUTSTANDING DOCTORAL STUDENT IN FINANCIAL ECONOMICS:

Finance Conference (SUWFC) held the Friday following the UWFC at the University of Utah (the student is invited to remain

paper can be submitted to the conference separately) and two letters of recommendation from their committee members.
The submission will be done directly on our web site.
