SFS Finance Cavalcade

Start date

End date

May 15, 2016 May 18, 2016


Toronto, Canada [Map it]


The Society for Financial Studies is pleased to announce that the host of Cavalcade 2016 will be the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.

This conference is a joint project of the Review of Financial Studies, the Review of Corporate Finance Studies, and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies.

The SFS Finance Cavalcade is a 2.5-3.0 day conference covering all areas of finance. The format is 55 minutes per paper with six-to-nine parallel sessions. Our goal is to provide a setting that produces the kind of in-depth participation of a smaller conference while accommodating the variety of papers of a larger one. The host school’s faculty and Ph.D. students receive complimentary registration to the conference and all events.

Fee Waivers: For papers in which ALL co-authors are doctoral students, the submission fee will be waived. The registration fee will also be waived for doctoral students.

Important Note for Authors of Accepted Papers: Authors of accepted papers must be able to attend their session regardless of which day the session is scheduled. If an author cannot make it to the scheduled time, the conference reserves the right to pull the paper.

Conference Dual Submission Option: You may elect dual submission to either The Review of Corporate Finance Studies or The Review of Asset Pricing Studies. To select dual submission, select Dual RAPS or Dual RCFS under “Category of Submission” in Step 2. If the journal you select decides not to send your paper out for review, the editor may refer your paper to the other journal, if appropriate, or to The Review of Financial Studies, for possible review. Thus, by selecting the dual submission option, you have implicitly agreed to be reviewed by any of the three SFS journals. Please see our Dual Submission Policy.
