Experimental Finance Conference 2021

Innsbruck, June 16-18

The Department of Finance at the University of Innsbruck and the Society for Experimental Finance (SEF) invites you to the Experimental Finance Conference 2021, to be held in Innsbruck (Austria). The conference also serves as the 12th annual meeting of the SEF.

Given the current Covid-19 situation EF 2021 will be held as an online conference.

We are happy to announce that we have reduced the conference fee to 25 Euro per person.

While we very much regret that we will not meet you in person this year, we reluctantly concluded that only with an online event we can guarantee participants’ safety and planning security. We hope you understand and are very much looking forward to your online presentations. We will provide detailed information on the platform(s) used for the presentations and other conference interaction in due time.

Keynote speakers

  • Annamaria Lusardi (George Washington University School of Business)

  • Stefan Nagel (University of Chicago Booth School of Business)

Talks with a View (Anniversary Special):

  • Roberto Weber (University of Zürich)

  • Michael Kirchler (University of Innsbruck)

We invite you to submit full papers or extended abstracts (minimum 1000 words), using experimental methods and covering all areas of finance, broadly defined (please only submit when you have already collected data). For more information and for online submission please refer to our conference website at www.ef-2021.com.

If you are a junior scientist, we also invite you to apply for the Vernon L. Smith Young Talent Award in Experimental Finance for the best conference paper. This prize is awarded by the SEF and Chapman University and amounts to 8,000 USD. Further details are on our website.
