The European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM) and the European Finance Association (EFA) in collaboration with the Finance Department of the University of Maastricht (The Netherlands) will organise, as it is now customary, a Tutorial for PhD students as part of the 31st EFA Annual Meeting.

The EFA Doctoral Tutorial 2004 will be co-chaired by Bruno Gérard (Norwegian School of Management - BI) and Frans de Roon (Tilburg University).

The tutorial, which will take place immediately prior to the EFA Annual Meeting, provides outstanding doctoral students in finance with an opportunity to discuss their dissertation research with other doctoral students and leading academics in the field of finance. All topics and methodological approaches within the broad field of finance will be considered.

The tutorial will be held on Wednesday, 18th August 2004 starting at 9.30 am. Selected proposals by PhD students will be presented during the day. The students are encouraged to submit well-defined and detailed proposals or preliminary drafts for one of their PhD essays that can already be submitted in a paper-format. They are welcome to add an additional page raising the conceptual and methodological problems they face with the current status of their dissertations, which they would like to discuss during the tutorial. Preference will be shown for work that is substantially advanced but not fully completed.

Candidates should submit their research paper no later than 15th March 2004. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered (“fastlane” protocol recommended. Details on the fastlane format can be found at https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/documents/pdf_create/pdfcreate_05.jsp?page=0). The submission should include the full content of your research document without any identifying details as author names, affiliation or acknowledgements. You will be asked to 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.

The admitted papers will be distributed to all participants to allow everyone to prepare the discussions. The tutorial is supposed to be held in a collaborative, open and friendly atmosphere. In order to encourage this, accepted papers will be discussed by a fellow Ph.D student whose paper has been accepted for the tutorial as well. In respect to this philosophy, participants are required to attend the entire tutorial. All participants will receive a certificate of participation.

Last but not least, we are pleased to announce that participation to the Tutorial will be free for students attending the 31st EFA Annual Meeting.
