Call for Papers
2022 Summer Research Conference, Center for Analytical Finance, Indian School of Business

The Centre for Analytical Finance (CAF) at the Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad, India, invites submissions for its flagship Summer Research Conference in Finance. The conference is scheduled from July 27, 2022, to July 29, 2022. Just like before, the conference will focus on "Recent Advances in Finance."

This is our nineteenth consecutive summer research conference. Over time, the conference has become very competitive with paper submissions from twenty odd countries and the acceptance rate well below one in ten. The post-conference publication rate of the conference papers in top-tier journals is one of the highest among all competitive finance conferences.

The keynote speaker for this year will be Philipp Schnabl, Martin J. Gruber Professor in Asset Management, Professor of Finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business and the Co-Editor, Journal of Financial Economics.

We invite papers in corporate finance including papers at the interface of corporate finance and other areas in finance including asset pricing, behavioral finance, financial intermediation, household finance, and microstructure. Both theoretical and empirical papers are welcome. Fresh papers or papers with new ideas, concepts, or methods are particularly welcome.

We tentatively aim to have eight papers in the program. Presenters can expect quality discussants, an active audience, and many informal interactions with participants. Past programs have been competitive. Participants have a very international profile, drawn from both the U.S. and outside.
