Deadline Approaching for FOM Conference (Finance, Organizations and Markets)

By Ricard Gil

Two years ago in December 2013 a great tradition started: the Finance, Organizations and Markets Conference first pushed by Gordon Phillips (USC Marshall) and more recently by others such as Kevin Murphy (USC Marshall) or Amit Seru (Chicago Booth). This year (after very successful conferences in 2013 and 2014) the organizers are glad to announce the third annual Finance, Organizations and Markets (FOM) conference to be held October 15 -16 of 2015 at the Gleacher Center at the University of Chicago. In addition to papers that will result from submissions, the conference will host 2 keynote invited papers presented by Bengt Holmstrom.

Broad topics of the conference and the FOM research group include internal firm organization (theory of the firm), mergers and acquisitions, financing policy and industrial organization of markets, and linkages between firms' financial, organizational, and operating strategies. Both theoretical and empirical work is encouraged. The broader goal is to continue our ongoing research working group. Scholars include individuals who study internal firm organization, corporate strategy, corporate finance and industrial organization of markets. Interaction between scholars will be on a continuous basis throughout the year and will culminate in an annual conference that will be held at rotating universities.

The deadline for submission is August 15th, so hurry up! See the link bellow for more information,
