Call for Papers
9th European Winter Finance Summit (Skinance) 2013

March 17-20, 2013, Obertauern Austria

Following eight very successful Skinance conferences, the WU Vienna University of Economics and Business and the University of Zurich present a small intimate and collegial conference in a beautiful ski resort, Obertauern, Austria. The conference will feature the popular "Utah format" with paper presentations in the early morning and late afternoon/evening - with a full day of skiing in between. We invite interested researchers to submit a paper or to discuss papers from the program.

LOCATION: Hotel das Seekarhaus, Obertauern. "Ski-in, ski-out". Easy access to Munich (3 hours) and Salzburg (1 hour). 3 secluded lifts service the hotel area directly. There are also opportunities for ski school and "off-piste".

REGISTRATION: No registration fee will be charged to paper presenters, discussants and invited guests.

NEW FOR 2013: Fewer papers. Only 10 papers will be accepted which means more time for skiing and personal interaction. Also, there will be a new best paper award presented to the best paper presenter. The amount will be Euro 2000.

PROGRAM CHAIRMAN AND COMMITTEE: The chair of the 2013 conference is Neal Stoughton of the WU. The program committee is made up of faculty principally from the WU, the University of Zurich and the Copenhagen Business School.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: All papers must be submitted via the online conftool system at The paper submission deadline is November 18, 2012. There is no charge for submissions.
