Welcome to 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.

Outstanding PhD students will have the opportunity to discuss their dissertation research with other doctoral students and leading academics in the field of finance.

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 to 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 was February 15, 2009.
