The Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF) welcomes submissions for its 2019 Corporate Finance Theory Symposium to be held in Cambridge UK, Clare College,  13-14 September 2019.

The symposium covers all areas of theoretical corporate finance, including theory papers that combine corporate finance theory with a related area such as banking, market micro-structure, asset pricing, and financial accounting.

The format of the 2019 symposium will be similar in nature to previous years’ editions (Previous Conferences).  We expect to have about 9 papers (each with a discussant) and one keynote speech. This year’s keynote speaker will be Itay Goldstein , Joel S. Ehrenkranz Family Professor, Professor of Finance, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.

Please submit your paper (in pdf format) by clicking the following link: Electronic Submission Form

The symposium is organized in collaboration with the Journal of Corporate Finance. Authors can opt to have their paper considered by the Journal of Corporate Finance under the dual submission review process. Decisions on acceptance of a paper to the symposium do not depend on whether a paper has also been entered for the dual submission review process.

Please read carefully before submitting your paper: Further Information and Requirements

The paper’s cover page must include: a title, abstract, authors' names and affiliations, and the email address of the corresponding author.

The deadline for submissions is 25 February 2019. The submitted paper must not have been accepted (or conditionally accepted) at a journal at the time of submission.

The corresponding author of selected papers will be informed around 30 April 2019.
