Boca Corporate Finance and Governance Conference

___________________________________________________________________________

Description

We are delighted to invite you to Boca Corporate Finance and Governance Conference, which will be held online this year, between the 14th and 15th November 2020, and invite the submission of original papers on all aspects of corporate finance and corporate governance.

The event is hosted by the College of Business, Florida Atlantic University, and sponsored by the British Academy of Management through the Corporate Governance Special Interest Group. 

The 2020 event drew 126 submissions. We accepted 67 papers for presentation.  The schedule is online here: https://sites.google.com/view/review-of-corporate-finance/boca-conference?authuser=0  

With Covid-19 and the current state of affairs in Florida, the event needs to be held virtually.  We had hoped to host you here in Boca in 2020.  So, we will contemplate another event around the same time in 2021 and look forward to meeting you in person next year in Boca.

The keynote speakers - Allen Berger, Itay Goldstein, and Laura Starks - will present in a panel format on Friday November 13, 2020 from 1:00 - 2:30. 

Following the last session of the conference on November 15, 2020, we will have a wrap-up session with the announcement of best paper and discussant awards.  We will also have a friendly open chat with editors about publications in various journals that publish papers in Corporate Finance and Corporate Governance, including but not limited to the British Academy of Management's British Journal of Management (a top ranked ABS4 journal with an impact factor of 3.023).

Thanks again, and we look forward to a great event!
