Call for Papers: 2019 Conference on Derivatives and Volatility

Conference date

08 Nov 2019


Chicago, IL


The Financial Management Association (FMA) is pleased to announce the 2019 Conference on Derivatives and Volatility which will be held Friday, 8 November 2019, at Loyola University’s Quinlan School of Business.

The Conference is smaller and more focused than the FMA’s traditional meetings and will include derivative and volatility focused papers as well as panel sessions on industry trends.

In addition to benefiting from the presentations of high-quality research and expert presentations, conference participants have the opportunity to enjoy a weekend in windy city – and explore everything the city has to offer – from entertainment on Navy Pier to historic Grant Park – to name but a few attractions the city has to offer.
We seek high-quality papers from scholars and practitioners in the fields of finance that:

• Focus on derivatives and volatility
• Advance the frontiers of academic research and inform practice
• Address issues that are relevant to contemporary issues and industry trends
• Introduce new hypotheses that have the potential to stimulate additional research

Additional Information

The paper submission deadline is 7 June 2019.

There is a $25 (US) submission fee per paper for current FMA members. The submission fee for non-members is $35.
