Information on the Financial Econometrics Pre-Conference for Young Scholars
Due to the continued success of the pre-conference, we are once again accepting submissions for 2018. Everybody planning to attend the Annual SoFiE conference is invited to register and attend this Pre-Conference to help raise the quality and recognition of the young scholars in our organization!

The pre-conference provides students, postdocs, and untenured professors (with up to three years in a tenure-track job) the opportunity to present their work prior to the regular conference. Joint work with senior co-authors is eligible for the pre-conference as long as the presenting co-author is eligible.

Papers eligible for the pre-conference are treated exactly as other submissions for the SoFiE conference. However, if they do not make the program, they are automatically considered for the pre-conference. Finally, it is also possible to submit a paper for consideration for the pre-conference only, as long as this is indicated at the time of submission.

The pre-conference will last one full day and will feature only young scholars, apart from the invited address by Fabio Trojani from the University of Geneva and the Swiss Finance Institute. We aim to have a seasoned scholar paired up with each individual paper in the pre-conference to enhance informal information exchange and constructive feedback.

Additionally, the Executive Committee of SoFiE is pleased to announce that the 2019 meeting will be held at the Tsinghua PCBSF, in Beijing, China, dates are to be announced at a future time.

The 10th Annual SoFiE Conference took place at NYU Stern in New York City between June 21-23, 2017. Please follow the link to the conference website and our Facebook group to review the program and check out photos from the event.
