Elsevier, in conjunction with the Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (FGV EBAPE), invite you to the first Elsevier Finance Conference.
Local partners also include ANPAD (Brazilian Association of MSc and PhD Programs), the Brazilian Accounting Association, UERJ – Rio de Janeiro State University, and IBEFA (International Banking, Finance and Economics Association).
This IN PERSON conference will be held at the FGV EBAPE Campus in beautiful Rio de Janeiro, 16-18 November 2023.
We welcome all papers and workshops in the broad fields of finance.
Papers and extended abstracts, as well as proposals for workshops and panel discussions, should be submitted by 31 August 2023. A submission portal is here. Decisions will be provided by end September.
Paper types and development opportunities
We have a number of paper presentation types available.
Main papers are typical academic oral presentations, of approx. 30min duration, with an assigned respondent.
Poster papers are papers presented on a single display c. 90x120cm, which contain all the main information around a topic. These will be displayed in the coffee/registration area, with authors attending at designated times, and are designed for early stage work.
Paper Development Workshop (PDW) papers are somewhat more advanced than the typical poster but still require guidance and refining. They will be presented in small groups, c. 5-6 per 3h session, with a journal author or senior AE providing immediate feedback, as well as group commentary. Note that not all papers selecting this option will be selected for the PDW – this will be done by the indicated journal editor – but those not selected will be offered poster presentation opportunities.
Conference sessions will take place at EBAPE.
The conference will be in person only.
Sessions typically last for 90m, and contain one workshop/roundtable or three papers with discussants. PDW workshops last for 180m.
Authors of accepted papers will be required to also act as discussants.
We do not issue visa letters or letters of support.
There are no conference fees but delegates are responsible for their own travel and hotel arrangements.

A number of Elsevier journals will provide publication opportunities. Some have thematic special issues; others are more open for any paper presented at the conference.
Papers for these special issues must be presented at the conference. Which journal or journals the author is aiming for, if any, will be requested at submission. It is NOT mandatory to select a SI to attend or present. Please refer to the journal websites for details on submissions. Note that submissions are NOT open yet.
