The CSEF-RCFS Conference on Finance, Labor, and Inequality, which was to take place in June 2020, has been postponed to a date in 2021 to be decided later.
The SFS presents our FinTech & Innovation Collection, featuring papers from RAPS, RCFS, and RFS. The featured papers are free to read on Oxford University Press’s web site.
“Information Bias in the Proxy Advisory Market” by Shichao Ma and Yan Xiong
SFS is pleased to announce that SFS Cavalcade Asia-Pacific 2020 will be hosted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Shenzhen, China. This decision is based on the assumption that the world will be back to normal by December 2020.
The RCFS dual submission decisions for the 9th MoFiR Workshop on Banking have been sent. If you submitted your paper as a dual submission to RCFS and did not receive your decision email, please contact us.
The RAPS and RCFS dual submission decisions for SFS Cavalcade North America 2020 have been sent. If you submitted your paper as a dual submission to RAPS or RCFS and did not receive your decision email, please contact us.
A part-time RFS advisory editor position is available for the next academic year, beginning in August 2020. We’re looking for an advanced finance or economics PhD student or a recent post-doc to provide editorial support in the review process. The position requires about 10 hours per week and a minimum commitment of one year; extension for another year is possible. Salary is competitive. The application deadline is May 8, but the position will only remain open until filled. To apply, please submit a cover letter, graduate course work, any working papers, and three letters of recommendation to Jan Sokolowsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Given the ongoing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, regrettably we have decided the SFS Cavalcade North America will not be held in person at UNC. We are exploring the possibility of holding it as a virtual conference and we will provide more information when it becomes available.
Please cancel any hotel reservations you have made at the Rizzo Center by going to https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/group-booking/RDUDH/G-L049

If you have already paid a registration fee, we will automatically refund it. You do not need to contact us for a refund.
We are planning to proceed with SFS Cavalcade North America 2020 and the safety of the participants is a top priority. We are in hopes that by late May the outbreak will have been contained and not pose a threat. We plan to continually reevaluate whether we need to change the plans based on public health guidance.
We suggest that participants may want to consider whether they should delay booking travel until closer to the meeting. We also ask participants who have visited a CDC Level 3 country within 14 days prior to the conference (or who otherwise suspect that they may have been exposed to the coronavirus) to refrain from attending. If authors or discussants are unable to attend, we will provide video links so that they can participate electronically.
