Mid-Atlantic Research Conference in Finance Program (MARC)

One Day Conference, March 31, 2023, Villanova, PA

The Villanova School of Business invites finance researchers to attend the Annual VSB Mid-Atlantic Research Conference in Finance (MARC). This one-day, one-track MARC meeting on Friday, March 31, 2023, will be held at Bartley Hall, Villanova University, from 8:15 am until 5:00 pm. We will be sharing high quality research papers in all areas of finance. The conference will include Prof. Michael Weisbach of The Ohio State University as our keynote luncheon speaker.

There will be several sessions during the day, with each session including 2-3 papers that are selected, after peer review, for inclusion in the conference. There will also be an Outstanding Paper Award. This is a selective and competitive process, but we look for broad participation among the many excellent academic institutions in the Mid-Atlantic region and around the world. All topics in finance will be considered.

Participants are also welcomed to attend a second day of conference programming with the addition of the Democratize Quant Conference, which will be held the day prior to the MARC conference on March 30, 2023, and will be more practitioner-oriented, while still maintaining a high degree of depth. Please visit https://alphaarchitect.com/democratizequant/ to learn more about this additional one-day event.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCESS: Electronic submissions, along with a $50 submission fee, should be uploaded via: https://vsbevents.villanova.edu/712029.

The deadline for submission is December 15, 2022. Authors will be notified on or before February 1, 2023, and authors of accepted papers will be expected to present their papers during the conference on March 31, 2023.
