7th Swiss Winter Conference on Financial Intermediation 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Cen­tre for Eco­nomic Pol­icy Research (CEPR) is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 7th Swiss Win­ter Con­fer­ence on Finan­cial Inter­me­di­a­tion 2014, held Feb­ru­ary 23 – 26, 2014 in Lenz­er­heide, Switzer­land.

    The organ­is­ing com­mit­tee of this small, infor­mal con­fer­ence invites sub­mis­sions of high qual­ity the­o­ret­i­cal or empir­i­cal research papers on finan­cial inter­me­di­a­tion. Please sub­mit your paper online, or if you have not reg­is­tered for CEPR events before, email men­tion­ing in the sub­ject line “Swiss Win­ter Con­fer­ence on Finan­cial Inter­me­di­a­tion”. Authors will be noti­fied about the accep­tance of papers and the con­fer­ence pro­gram by Decem­ber 6, 2013.

    Due to capac­ity con­straints, pref­er­ence will be given to par­tic­i­pants who can stay for the whole dura­tion of the con­fer­ence. There will be around ten papers and dis­cus­sions, leav­ing ample time for reflec­tion and out­door activities.

    There is no con­fer­ence fee and there are no accom­mo­da­tion costs, but par­tic­i­pants must cover their own travel costs.

    The Uni­ver­si­ties of Zurich and St. Gallen will cover the accom­mo­da­tion costs and meals dur­ing the conference.

    The sub­mis­sion fee for the Review of Finance will be waived for all con­fer­ence papers sub­mit­ted to the Review within six months after the con­fer­ence takes place.
