Stockholm Business School (SBS) and The Nordic Finance Network (NFN) are organizing the 8th Finance Workshop for young scholars from Nordic universities. The workshop offers junior Finance faculty from Nordic universities a forum to present their research. In addition, the workshop aims to provide an opportunity for junior and senior faculty to meet and interact.

Theoretical and empirical papers in all areas of finance are welcome, but the author(s) must have graduated after 2013. Completed as well as preliminary drafts will be considered. While only young scholars (PhD after 2013) can submit papers, the workshop is open to faculty, post-docs, and PhD students from all Nordic universities. This year the organizers decided to open up submission also for those PhD students who aim for international job market.

The workshop will start late morning on Thursday, November 28th, and run until early afternoon on Friday, November 29th. The workshop will be held at the Stockholm Business School, Kräftriket 3, Stockholm. The workshop format will be paper presentations, followed by a discussion. In addition, there will be a workshop dinner on Thursday evening.

There is no workshop fee. Traveling expenses and accommodation of presenting authors and discussants will be covered by the organizers. Papers will be selected based on a review by the Program Committee. The submission deadline has passed. Authors will be notified of the Program Committee's decision by the end of October, 2019.
