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. 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 single authored work that is substantially advanced but not fully completed. Papers that are co-authored with a faculty member will not be considered for presentation. Preference will also be given to students who are planning to participate to (to go on) the job-market in 2007-08.All topics and methodological approaches within the broad field of finance will be considered.

The deadline for submission of paper is over !

Submission guidelines

Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. To create universally portable PDF files use the Fastlane protocol. Please click here for detailed technical instructions on the Fastlane Protocol.

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.

Although students can submit to both the main conference and the tutorial, papers accepted for the main conference will be automatically disqualified from inclusion in the tutorial. In case you also submitted your paper to the EFA 34th Annual Meeting, please indicate below the title of your paper in the submission form : "also submitted to the EFA Conference".



The Tutorial will take place at the conference venue, i.e. at the Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana, Kardeljeva ploscad 17, SI-1000 Ljubljana. Please find more information about the venue at http://www.efa2007.org
The exact room is the CISEF seminar room.

The selected papers will be distributed to all participants to allow everyone to prepare the discussions. The tutorial is held in a collaborative, open and friendly atmosphere, and lively discussions and questioning from student and faculty participants is encouraged. To further this aim, each accepted paper will be discussed by at least one tutorial faculty, as well as by one of the participating PhD-students. To encourage the collegiality of the tutorial, participants are asked to attend the entire tutorial. All participants will receive a certificate of participation.
