Description

The Northern Finance Association is pleased to invite submissions for its 32nd Annual Conference, to be held on September 25-27, 2020, at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. 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.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
The deadline for submissions has been extended to 23:59 hrs PST, 12 April, 2020, because of many universities have recently switched to online teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic, creating extra work for faculty. Papers should be submitted electronically via the NFA web site: https://northernfinanceassociation.org/conference/call-for-papers/. Papers will be reviewed anonymously by up to four members of the Program Committee, and authors will be notified about the outcome of the reviewing process by mid May, 2020.
