Young Finance Scholars Conference

Submission and registration

Submission is open to young researchers working in all areas of finance, especially (but not limited to) PhD students, post-doctoral and early career researchers.


Submission Information

Submissions may be in the form of:

  • A full paper (that has not yet been accepted for publication)
  • A draft paper or a detailed outline of research in progress (No more than 1 A4 page containing proposed title, author(s) and summary)
  • An extended abstract (500-1,000 words)

Each paper submission should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 150 words. Submissions that are not accepted for presentation in parallel streams may possibly be offered poster presentations instead.

At least one author, and the intended presenter, should be an early career researcher (i.e. a PhD student, post-doctoral researcher or a lecturer without a tenured position). Papers may be co-authored with senior academics, but presentations at the conference may only be from the early career researcher. 

Final submissions of accepted papers will be sent to the committee for comments in preparation for discussion on the day. Conference papers will not be published in any proceedings and are eligible for submission to an academic journal.
