Deadline for extended abstract submissions: December 12, 2015.
The conference co-chairs will select papers for presentation at the conference based on extended abstracts. Selected papers must not be published prior to the conference, but those researchers presenting their work at the conference must commit to have a paper that is complete and available for review by discussants one month prior to the conference, i.e., by April 20th, 2016. Please designate which author will present the paper if accepted for a plenary presentation, as this affects our decisions. We understand that the presenter may change if a paper is accepted as a poster rather than for a plenary session, but we expect that the designated presenter will present a paper selected for a plenary session.
Selections will be based on quality, relevance to consumers' financial decision-making, and contribution to breadth of topics and disciplinary approaches. We consider not just the individual merits of the papers, but how they pair with another submission from a scholar in a different field. The organizers will invite authors of the best papers not selected for presentation at a plenary session to present their work at the Sunday evening poster session.
