CALL FOR PAPERS
February 5-7, 2015 CLIFF LODGE, SNOWBIRD, UTAH
The Twenty-fifth Annual Utah Winter Finance Conference will be held February 5-7, 2015. The opening reception begins Wednesday evening, February 4th. The location is the beautiful Cliff Lodge at Snowbird.
You are invited to submit papers on any topic in financial economics for the 2015 UWFC. 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. The deadline for submission is: September 5, 2014
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.
All papers must be submitted electronically by September 5, 2014. There is a submission fee of $40. You can submit your paper by clicking on the link above.
Authors will be notified of paper selection in November.
We will videotape the presentations and discussions of the 2015 UWFC (and place 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:
The Utah Winter Finance Conference offers a $2,500 award to an outstanding PhD student in financial economics honoring the memory of Shmuel Kandel. The student will attend the UWFC and
must also participate in the Student Utah Winter Finance Conference (SUWFC) held the Friday
following the UWFC at the University of Utah (the student is invited to remain in Utah between “conferences” or may travel in the intermediate period).
Interested students should submit a completed paper (the paper will not be considered for the
UWFC program, but the paper can be submitted to the conference separately) and two letters of recommendation from their committee members. The submission will be done directly by clicking on
the submission link above and choosing the Shmuel Kandel submission option.
The submission deadline is September 5, 2014 and the winner will be announced by early November.
