The European Finance Association (EFA) is organising a Doctoral Tutorial for PhD students as part of the 38th EFA Annual Meeting, with the sponsorship of the NASDAQ-OMX Educational Foundation. The Doctoral Tutorial will take place on Wednesday, August 17, 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden. The EFA Doctoral Tutorial 2011 will be co-chaired by Loriana Pelizzon (University Ca’ Foscari of Venice), Bruno Gérard (BI, Oslo) and Frans de Roon (Tilburg University).
Outstanding PhD students will have the opportunity to discuss their dissertation research with other doctoral students and leading academics in the field of finance.
The Doctoral Tutorial is held in a collaborative, open and friendly atmosphere. The selected papers will be distributed well in advance to facilitate lively discussions and questions from student and faculty participants alike. To enhance the collegiality of the tutorial, participants are kindly asked to attend the entire event. In addition, a student whose paper is accepted for the Doctoral Tutorial is also expected to serve as a discussant for one of the other papers. All participants will receive a certificate of participation. There will be a group supper organised for participants of the EFA Doctoral Tutorial the evening before the event (i.e., Tuesday, August 16, 2011) – details to follow closer to the date.
