Call for Papers
Jackson Hole Finance Conference

January 19 - 21, 2013, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

We are pleased to announce that the Seventh meeting of the Jackson Hole Finance Group will be held in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on January 19-21, 2013. Papers in all areas of finance are invited for consideration for presentation at the conference. Papers submitted to the conference can opt to participate in the dual submission program at the Review of Asset Pricing Studies (RAPS) and the Review of Corporate Finance Studies (RCFS).

CONFERENCE DETAILS: The Jackson Hole Finance Group is a small conference that takes place in the 3rd week of January at the Teton Village in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The conference is held at a slope-side location in Jackson Hole. The wide range of excellent skiing at Jackson Hole accommodates skiers of all levels from the very beginner to the very advanced. The format allows attendees to interact both during presentation times as well as during off-session hours. Details about past conferences can be viewed at

Attendees are responsible for their travel and hotel expenses. The registration fee is $200.

PAPER SELECTION PROCESS: We encourage presentations of research at an early stage where presenters will benefit most from open and informal discussion. More developed papers will be considered as well, with preference for papers that have not previously been presented at major conferences. Special consideration will be given to papers authored by junior faculty. The selection of papers is expected to be competitive. The program will attempt to balance a mix of theoretical and empirical papers in both corporate finance and asset pricing.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: The submission deadline is September 21, 2012. A pdf copy of the paper may be submitted at:

PROGRAM COMMITTEE: Submitted papers will be evaluated by the program committee that consists of:
Viral Acharya, New York University
Jonathan Berk, Stanford University
Paolo Fulghieri, University of North Carolina
Mark Grinblatt, UCLA
Deborah Lucas, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Anil Shivdasani, University of North Carolina
Matt Spiegel, Yale University
Anjan Thakor, Washington University

We expect to notify authors of accepted papers by early November 2012.

DUAL SUBMISSION OPTION: In the submission, please indicate if you would like to have your paper considered (at no extra fee) for publication by either The Review of Asset Pricing Studies (RAPS) or Review of Corporate Finance Studies (RCFS) under the Dual Submission Program. This is a "no-fault" submission option, which means that if one of the SFS journals decides to review your paper and rejects it, you may submit to any SFS journal at a later date as if the paper was never submitted. See the SFS website at for the details of the Dual Submission program.
