The Summer Institute of Finance (SIF) will host its eleventh annual conference July 12 - 13, 2021. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the conference will be held in a combined online and on-premises format in the city of Shanghai.

Organized by the Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the SIF conference typically hosts about 60 participants to discuss cutting-edge topics in current financial research. While all quality submissions are welcome, there will be a special session on Chinese financial markets and institutions. Early drafts with innovative ideas are also encouraged.

Here is the Call for Papers. The deadline for submission was Sunday, March 7, 2021. All submissions will be reviewed by a program committee of renowned international scholars, chaired by Professor Xiaoyun Yu of Indiana University. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by late April, 2021.
