The next Financial Intermediation Research Society (FIRS) Conference will be held in Berlin, Germany, on May 29-31, 2024. Details about the conference can be found on the conference page. The submission deadline for the regular sessions has passed. However, as in past years, the 2024 FIRS Conference will hold two special sessions for Ph.D. students, and the window to submit papers for these sessions will remain open until March 15, 2024.

Submissions for Ph.D. Student Sessions

As in past years, the 2024 FIRS Conference will hold two special sessions for Ph.D. students. Each selected paper will be discussed by a seasoned researcher in a session open to all FIRS participants. To be eligible, the submitting author must be a Ph.D. student who is not on the job market in 2023-24, and all the authors of the submitted paper must currently be Ph.D. students. Also, as part of the submission process, the submitting author will be asked to provide the name and email address of their thesis advisor.

All fields in finance will be considered. Conference fees will be waived for students whose paper is accepted for these special sessions, and FIRS will reimburse these students up to $1,000 to cover travel and hotel expenses.

In addition, the Journal of Financial Intermediation will be sponsoring a $5,000 JFI/FIRS Award for the conference’s best paper submitted to the Ph.D. student sessions. The award-winning paper will be selected jointly by the Board of the Financial Intermediation Research Society and the Editorial Board of the Journal of Financial Intermediation. The award will be announced and presented as part of a special event at the conference.

We hope to see you in Berlin!
