Call For Papers
Fourth UTD Finance Conference

October 9, 2021, The University of Texas at Dallas

The Finance Area of the Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) is organizing its fourth one-day conference on October 9, 2021 (Saturday). The conference will start with a conference dinner on the evening of October 8, 2021 (Friday) and will end with a reception on October 9.

We invite interested researchers to submit papers to be considered for presentation and discussion. Empirical or theoretical papers on any topic related to finance (except those that are conditionally accepted or forthcoming at a journal) will be considered. The papers will be reviewed by a program committee consisting of UT Dallas finance faculty.

Lauren Cohen, the L.E. Simmons Chaired Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and co-editor of the Review of Financial Studies, will be giving the keynote speech.
The deadline for submissions is August 15, 2021 at midnight PDT. Authors of selected papers will be notified around August 31, 2021. The submission fee is $25 per paper. UTD will cover the flight (economy class) and one or two nights of hotel expenses for presenters. Papers in PDF format can be submitted through the conference website: https://jindal.utdallas.edu/events/finance-conference/

We expect to hold the conference at our main campus in Richardson (just north of Dallas), and we expect all presenters and discussants to attend in person. In the case of a worsening COVID-19 situation, we will switch to an online format.
