NFA 2019 CALL FOR PAPERS
NORTHERNFINANCEASSOCIATION.ORG
NORTHERN FINANCE ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE 2019
VANCOUVER MARRIOTT PINNACLE DOWNTOWN HOTEL, SEPTEMBER 13-15, 2019
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA

The Northern Finance Association is pleased to invite submissions for its 31st Annual Conference, to be held on September 13-15, 2019, at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel. Papers on any topic related to finance will be considered, as long as they have not already been accepted for publication in a journal. Each author is restricted to one submission. In case of multiple co-authored papers, each paper will have to have a different presenter at the conference.

Papers should be submitted electronically at https://www.openconf.org/nfa2019/. The deadline for submissions is March 23, 2019, at 11:59 pm (23:59 hrs) Pacific Time.

Papers will be reviewed anonymously by up to three members of the Program Committee, and authors will be notified about the outcome of the review process by mid-May 2019. We are working to maximize participation opportunities in the conference, so presenting authors of accepted papers will generally not be asked to discuss papers. Instead, discussants and session chairs will be selected from our list of NFA contacts, which includes 5-year NFA members, Program Committee members, co-authors of accepted papers, and past presenters.

Conference registration will open by mid-May, 2019. Conference registration and hotel booking details will be available at https://northernfinanceassociation.org/conference/.
