The 12th Annual Conference in Financial Economics Research, by Eagle Labs

Conference Organizers: Jacob Boudoukh, Yaniv Grinstein & Shimon Kogan
About the Conference
The Annual Conference in Financial Economics Research , founded by The Rothschild Caesarea Foundation, is entering its 12th year and is supported by Eagle Labs. Over the past decade, the conference has become one of the top conferences in financial economics research worldwide. The conference's small-scale environment, high level of papers and discussions, and its attendees, drawn from top schools around the world, all combine to foster interaction and academic dialog.
The organizers of the conference are Jacob Boudoukh, Yaniv Grinstein, Shimon Kogan and Roni Michaely. Each year we receive two to three hundred papers. The papers are screened in a two-stage process by a committee of over fifty leading academics spread over all relevant subfields. Discussants are matched to selected papers based on their relevant expertise. The conference’s prominence in the academic community results in submission of excellent work by researchers from around the world. That, combined with a rigorous screening process, resulted in over half of the papers presented during our 2006-2010 conferences being published in one of the top five finance journals.
