Call For Papers
Jackson Hole Finance Group Conference

January 15-17, 2022, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

We are pleased to announce that the Fifteenth meeting of the Jackson Hole Finance Group will be held in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on January 15 - 17, 2022. Papers in all areas of finance are invited for consideration for presentation at the conference. Papers submitted to the conference can opt to participate in the dual submission program at the Review of Asset Pricing Studies (RAPS) and the Review of Corporate Finance Studies (RCFS). The conference is co-sponsored by the Society for Financial Studies and the Wells Fargo Center for Corporate Finance.

The Jackson Hole Finance Group is a small conference that takes place in the 3rd week of January at the Teton Village in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The conference is held at a slope-side location in Jackson Hole. The wide range of excellent skiing at Jackson Hole accommodates skiers of all levels from the very beginner to the very advanced. The format allows attendees to interact both during presentation times as well as during off-session hours. Details about past conferences can be viewed at https://jhfinance.web.unc.edu/

Attendees are responsible for their travel and hotel expenses. The registration fee is $260.

At this point the likelihood of a full live meeting remains uncertain. The options right now seem to be a "hybrid" meeting, where sessions will include live and virtual participants, with the possibility of having a 100% virtual meeting. In planning for the former, we assume those intending to go in person will need to present (upload) proof of full vaccination with a vaccine authorized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in order to register for the meeting.

PAPER SELECTION PROCESS: We encourage presentations of research at an early stage where presenters will benefit most from open and informal discussion. More developed papers will be considered as well, with preference for papers that have not previously been presented at major conferences. Special consideration will be given to papers authored by junior faculty. The selection of papers is expected to be competitive. The program will attempt to balance a mix of theoretical and empirical papers across various finance research areas.

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. See the SFS website at http://sfs.org/dualsubmissionpolicy/ for the details of the Dual Submission program.
