Submission Deadline: 15/03/2024 (CET, Midnight)
Submit your fully developed working paper at https://www.conftool.com/alpinefinancesummit2024. Selection of papers is determined via a blind-review process; hence author identities must be concealed at submission. Authors are allowed to submit more than one paper. There is a submission fee of EUR 50 per paper.
Authors will be notified on the acceptance/refusal of their article in April 2024.
We are happy to announce that the keynote speech will be given by Prof. Michael Weber, Ph.D. from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Similar to the vision of “winter finance conferences”, particular focus is devoted to a social program for summer outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountain biking, and summer sledding. These activities will be organized during the conference and all conference participants are encouraged to participate. Detailed information on the social program will be provided in spring 2024.
The conference fee is 350 EUR per participant. It includes an apéro riche on the first conference day and the conference dinner on the third conference day.
