HOW TO APPLY:

Please email your paper to meets@cepr.org mentioning in the subject line “Swiss Winter Conference on Financial Intermediation” by October 19, 2015. Authors will be notified about the acceptance of papers and the conference program by November 25, 2015. There is no conference fee and there are no accommodation costs for the invited presenters, discussants and chairs, but all participants must cover their own travel costs.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

The conference will be held at the Hotel Schweizerhof in the mountain resort of Lenzerheide, Switzerland (www.schweizerhof-lenzerheide.ch). The academic programme starts Wednesday morning (March 30) at 08:00 and ends Friday (April 1) before noon. Due to capacity constraints, preference will be given to participants who can stay for the whole duration of the conference. Participants should plan to arrive Tuesday afternoon (March 29) and leave Friday afternoon (April 1). There will be around twelve papers and discussions (including one session covered by the BIS and one session for advanced PhD students), and for the first time this year there will also be poster sessions. However ample time for discussion, reflection and outdoor activities will be left for sure.

The sponsors will cover the accommodation costs and meals during the conference. The submission fee for the Review of Finance will be waived for all conference papers submitted to the Review within six months after the conference takes place.
