Call for papers for the Doctoral Tutorial

The European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) and the European Finance Association (EFA) will jointly organize, as it is now customary, a Tutorial for PhD students as part of the 36th EFA Annual Meeting. It will take place on Wednesday August 19, 2009 in Bergen, Norway. The EFA Doctoral Tutorial 2009 will be chaired by Loriana Pelizzon (University Ca' Foscari of Venice), Bruno Gérard (BI, Oslo) and Frans de Roon (Tilburg University).  Marion Hebbelynck is the EIASM contact person.

Call for Papers

We encourage PhD students to submit well-defined and detailed research proposals or preliminary drafts for one of their PhD essays that can already be submitted in a paper-format. Submitters are welcome to add one or two additional page(s) raising the conceptual and methodological problems they face with the current status of their dissertations, which they would like to discuss during the tutorial. All topics and methodological approaches within the broad field of finance will be considered. Preference will be shown for single authored work that is substantially advanced but not fully completed, as well as to work by students who are planning to participate in the job-market in 2009–10. Papers that are co-authored with a faculty member will not be considered for presentation.

Deadline for submission of papers is February 15, 2009.

Submission Guidelines

Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. To create universally portable pdf files use the Fastlane protocol. Details are found at

The submission should include the full content of your research document without any identifying details as author names, affiliation or acknowledgements. You will provide your name, affiliation, co-authors, paper abstract as well as your CV in the submission application form. The submissions will be evaluated blindly by the tutorial faculty.

Students are encouraged to submit their work to both the main conference and the tutorial. However, acceptance to the main conference automatically disqualifies a paper from inclusion in the tutorial.
