The Northern Finance Association is pleased to invite submissions for its 34th Annual Conference, to be held on September 23-25, 2022 at the Banff Centre. We are currently planning to hold the conference entirely in-person. However, the modality could change to a virtual one if warranted by health and safety concerns.

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 must have a different presenter at the conference.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 27, 2022, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Submit your paper here. Papers will be reviewed anonymously and authors will be notified about the outcome of the review process by mid-May 2022.

Keynote Speaker

The 2022 Keynote Speaker is Professor Christine Parlour, the Sylvan C. Coleman Chair at the Haas School of the University of California, Berkeley. The keynote address will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2022 in the afternoon.

PhD Student Sessions

Papers authored exclusively by students who are nearing completion of their PhD and planning to enter the job market after the conference may be submitted using the standard submission procedure. Such papers should select “PhD” in the “Early Career” dropdown list during the submission process to be considered for the PhD Sessions in the event they are not selected for the regular program. The PhD sessions will be held on Friday, September 23, 2022 in the afternoon and will be chaired by Vincent Glode, the Pasi M. Hamalainen Associate Professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Sessions for Early Career Researchers

The conference will include special sessions for assistant professors and other junior researchers on Friday, September 23, 2022 in the afternoon and will be chaired by Lorenzo Garlappi, the TSX Venture Exchange Professor at the Sauder School of the University of British Columbia.
