The Keynote Speaker of the 2012 Annual Meeting is Professor Darrell Duffie, Stanford University.
We are planning special events and tracks on Financial Frictions, Mortgage Systems and Products, Energy and Commodities, and Design of Pension Systems and Products. Based on a long-term agreement between the European Central Bank (ECB) and EFA, the plan is also to have a few special sessions on key finance research topics for central banks. The topics proposed by the ECB for the 2012 Annual Meeting are: Systemic Risk and Macroprudential Regulation, Fiscal Policy and Financial Instability, and Non-standard Central Bank Interventions. Paper submissions to these special tracks and sessions are encouraged, but the papers will pass the same submission and review process as regular paper submissions to the EFA 2012 Annual Meeting.
EFA DOCTORAL TUTORIAL: There will be a one-day EFA Doctoral Tutorial on Wednesday August 15, 2012, organized by co-chairs Loriana Pelizzon, Bruno Gerard, and Frans de Roon. Doctoral students should submit papers or proposals to be considered for presentation at the EFA Doctoral Tutorial via the EFA 2012 conference web site, http://www.efa2012.org, by March 1, 2012, (midnight PST) at the latest.
