*Call For Papers The 14th Annual Meeting of the Financial Research Association*
December 16 and 17, 2017, Vdara Hotel and Spa, Las Vegas, Nevada
Submission Deadline: August 31, 2017
The program committee of the Financial Research Association seeks new finance papers of general interest to the profession for the 14th annual meeting of the Association. We are specifically looking for papers that have not been submitted to a journal and have not been presented or scheduled to be presented at the Western Finance Association meeting or the ASSA meeting. The selection process is very competitive. Last year’s acceptance rate was less than 3%. All papers will be presented by a discussant, after which the authors will have an opportunity to respond. The meeting provides an excellent forum for authors to obtain detailed feedback from an accomplished and active group of finance scholars.
BEST PAPER AWARD: The Financial Research Association will present a Best Paper Award, as selected by the conference attendees, regardless of research area. Authors of the winning paper will share a prize of $5,000. We will also present a Best Discussant Award, which will be accompanied by a prize of $5,000.
MICHAEL J. BARCLAY AWARD: The Association will also present the Michael J. Barclay Award to the young scholar who submits the best solo-authored paper. Young scholars include current PhD students and assistant professors who have held their PhD for fewer than three years. In addition to recognizing the young scholar’s achievement, the Barclay Award reimburses the winner’s conference registration and, in the case of PhD students, also reimburses airfare (up to $450) and hotel expenses.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Papers may be submitted in PDF form to FRA@bc.edu. There is no limit to the number of papers that one author may submit. Each submission costs $50. PhD students receive an exemption from the submission fee.
Submitting authors will be notified of paper selection in the beginning of October. Once the program is set, the program committee will invite a limited number of participants to register for the meetings.
FURTHER INFORMATION: The conference fee of $375 covers conference costs, including the Sunday dinner and a Saturday wine tasting. PhD students receive a $100 discount.

Papers are eligible for Inquire Europe funding if still substantial work is to be done. Please attach a draft copy of a paper if that is available, and indicate which further work is to be done in your proposed time-schedule.
