Call for Papers

Dear LFG members,

We are glad to announce the details of the next meeting for the Labor and Finance Group (LFG). It will be held on September 29, 2018, at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. The Labor and Finance Conference will be held at the Ronald Regan Building and International Trade Center, in Washington DC.

The conference will focus on the intersecting areas of finance, labor economics, and personnel economics. It will consist of 6 seminar-style papers, without discussants, and will conclude with a group dinner. We specifically encourage early work which can most benefit from group feedback. We also hope to have an “early ideas” session, with 5-8 minute talks to get feedback on early work.

Paper submission deadline is July 31, 2018. Submit your paper.

Authors will be notified by August 15 and the program will be posted by August 31.

The broader goal is to continue our ongoing research working group. As a reminder from our previous invitations, the Labor and Finance Group is a relatively new initiative to bring together academics working at the intersection of finance, labor economics, and personnel economics. We believe that this intersection is ripe for collaborative work, and would be well served by regular interactions among researchers in each discipline.
