*Invitation to Bid SFS Cavalcade North America 2019*
The Society for Financial Studies invites you to bid to host the SFS Cavalcade North America at your school! The SFS Cavalcade North America is a joint project of the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies. It is a high-quality conference covering all areas of finance. According to a recently published study by Sebastian J. Reinartz and Daniel Urban that compares top finance conferences: “The Society for Financial Studies (SFS) Finance Cavalcade conference is the best large finance conference according to the subsequent publication rates in TOP3 finance journals.” See: www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0927539817300257
OVERVIEW: The conference format is 55 minutes per paper with eight-to-eleven parallel sessions. Our goal is to provide a setting that produces the kind of in-depth participation of a smaller conference while accommodating the variety of papers of a larger one. We currently expect the 2019 Cavalcade to take place in a comparable time frame to the 2017 Cavalcade (i.e., May 15-18). To give you an idea of the scale, the 2017 Cavalcade had 120 papers on the program in eight parallel sessions and more than 360 conference registrants. Presented papers, session chairs, and discussants are decided by SFS program committee.
The SFS uses the Cavalcade submission and registration fees to cover the cost of lunches on all session days, break-time food and drink on all session days, and complimentary registration to the conference and all events for all of the host school’s faculty and Ph.D. students. A host school bid offers to pay for some combination of items, such as receptions, dinners, breakfasts, or special events. In prior years, successful bidders have offered combinations that range in value from $30,000 to $60,000. Host schools are welcome to seek sponsorships and typically are able offset most or all of their costs. We ask only that the SFS be notified of the sponsors. Bids are required to specify: a faculty sponsor, an administrative/event planning contact, an indication that the school can provide facilities to host eight-to-eleven parallel sessions, and indication that local hotels can handle up to 500 visitors. We are accepting bids for SFS Cavalcade North America 2019 from July 1-October 1, 2017.
FURTHER INFORMATION: For more information, please visit sfs.org/sfs-cavalcade-north-america-2019 . For questions, please contact cavalcadenorthamerica@sfs.org. We request those who intend to bid to notify the committee of their intention as early as possible.

*Announcement & Call for Papers 54th Annual Eastern Finance Association Meeting*
April 11 – April 14, 2018, Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill, Philadelphia, PA
Deadline for Submission: Monday, September 25, 2017
You are invited to participate in the 54th Annual Meeting of the Eastern Finance Association (EFA) at the Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill ( www.sheratonphiladelphiasocietyhill.com ) in historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, one of the original founding cities of the United States. The conference will begin with a reception the evening of Wednesday, April 11, and will proceed with paper presentations, panels and tutorials from Thursday morning, April 12 through Saturday morning, April 14, 2018.
ABOUT THE VENUE: Philadelphia boasts numerous wonderful attractions beyond the conference itself. The hotel is located in the beautiful Society Hill section of Philadelphia and is located near many local attractions. The hotel is only a half mile (10 minute walk) away from the Independence National Park (www.nps.gov/inde/index.htm), which has both the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the founding documents of the United States (Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution) were signed. The hotel is also only a half mile (10 minute walk) from Elfreth’s Alley (www.elfrethsalley.org/work ), the oldest continuously lived on street in the United States. The hotel is also right near the Delaware River and close to the waterfront and its attractions, as well as near the many bars and multi-ethnic restaurants on 2nd Avenue and the evening nightlife on South Street. Other Philadelphia attractions include Philadelphia’s outstanding Museum Row on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway; highlights include the Rodin Museum (with the largest collection of Rodin’s works outside of Paris), the Franklin Institute, The Barnes Foundation (many impressionist works), and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (run up the famous steps that Rocky ran up)! Other attractions include the Philadelphia Zoo (the first true zoo in the United States), and many fine universities including the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University among many others.
MEETING DETAILS: The EFA 2018 annual meeting will be an excellent opportunity for academics, doctoral students, and practitioners to share ideas across all areas of financial research. As Program Chair, I invite you to submit for consideration your latest research, along with proposals for special sessions, tutorials, and panel discussions. Research covering a broad range of finance topics will be considered along with opportunities for sessions focused on pedagogy and current issues in finance. I also encourage you to spread the word to any of your colleagues who have not attended the EFA annual meeting in the past. Finally, please volunteer to serve as a program committee member, discussant, or session chair. The success of the EFA annual meeting depends on the dedication of our participants to serve in these vital roles.
TRACK CHAIRS: We are fortunate to have wonderful academics who have offered to serve as the Track Chairs for the 2018 EFA annual meeting. They are as follows: – Corporate Finance: Michel Habib, Univ. of Zurich and Nicole Boyson, Northeastern – Institutions and Markets: Russell Wermers, University of Maryland – Investments: Marc Lipson, Darden/U. Virginia and James Angel, Georgetown – International Finance: Larry Fauver, University of Tennessee – Special Topics/Derivatives: Jeff Harris, American University
TOPICS: For the first time, there will be a special Climate Change subject code; I encourage the submission of climate change papers, even preliminary ones, to this conference. Papers written with scientists and aimed for pure science journals are also encouraged, and abstracts/talks that would otherwise be appropriate for the American Geophysical Union meetings or other scientific conferences will also be considered if they have a financial or economic component.
The EFA 2018 annual meeting will also feature a variety of special academic sessions, which should make this conference unique. For example, there will be at least two special academic sessions on FinTech. My co-panelists on special session on FinTech at the EFA 2017 meetings, Roni Michaely (Cornell) and David Yermack (NYU), have agreed to help choose papers and chair these academic sessions. There will be a special FinTech subject code, and I encourage the submission of FinTech papers to these sessions.
In addition, there will be special academic sessions run by Philadelphia area schools (Penn/Wharton, Drexel, Temple, Villanova, Delaware, etc.) highlighting papers by their faculty. Washington area schools will also have special academic sessions (Georgetown, American Univ., etc.) as well. In addition, there will be special academic sessions featuring economists working at important Washington DC area financial regulators (the US Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC], The Federal Reserve Board of Governors [FRB], The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority [FINRA], etc.). All of these schools and regulators have committed to presenting their research and participating in the conference, and should make for some interesting sessions.
SUBMIT RESEARCH PAPERS OR IDEAS FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS: To submit a research paper for consideration, please submit a completed manuscript directly on the EFA website, www.easternfinance.org . To submit a paper you will need to create an EFA ID by registering on the EFA website.

For each accepted paper or proposal, an author will be required to register within four weeks of the acceptance notification to secure a place on the EFA annual meeting program. Additionally, any registered author of an accepted research paper will be obligated to discuss at least one paper at the meeting.
