EFA & Organizers

The European Finance Association Annual Meetings have recently attracted over 750 renowned financial economists from top business schools and universities from all around the world. In a highly competitive selection process, a committee of track chairs and reviewers from the best universities chooses around 240 papers for presentation from more than 1,900 submissions. This stringent selection process ensures the excellence and the high quality of finance research presented at the conference.

The conference hosts 81 sessions over two-and-a-half days, and serves as the venue for the formal EFA Annual Meeting. The conference also hosts two EFA events for PhD students: the Doctoral Tutorial and Doctoral Workshop. These are closed events. The conference comprises several social events, which are excellent networking platforms.

The EFA Annual Meeting is held by a different university each year. Imperial College London and the SGH Warsaw School of Economics are proud to co-host the 45th EFA Annual Meeting at the Sofitel hotel in Warsaw, 22-25, August 2018.
