Organized by the Finance Faculty of the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business

We are pleased to invite submissions from all areas of finance to be considered for presentation at the 2019 Colorado Finance Summit. We encourage both theoretical and empirical contributions. We favor early work that has not appeared at other conferences. The final program will consist of 8 to 10 papers, plus a session with presentations by current (2019-2020) job market candidates. At the end of the conference, we will present an award for best paper presentation by a job candidate, as well as an award for the best paper on the regular program.

The conference will be held at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort, beginning with a reception on the evening of December 12th and ending after the morning session on December 15th. Invited attendees will have ample opportunity to explore Vail, and its outdoor opportunities.

We expect that the conference program will be exciting and innovative, and we anticipate a high level of interaction among the participants, both during and between sessions.

SUBMISSION, NOMINATION AND REGISTRATION DETAILS: The deadline for regular submissions is August 31st. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by mid-October. The deadline for PhD nominations is October 15th. Accepted PhD candidates will be notified in the first week of November.
