Programme Areas:  

Location: 33 Great Sutton St, London, EC1V 0DX, United Kingdom 


Given the current circumstances with respect to the novel coronavirus and, in particular, the restrictions of the French government on large gatherings, we have decided that the prudent course of action would be to cancel the upcoming Adam Smith Workshop that was scheduled to be held on 23-24 April, 2020 at EDHEC Business School in Nice.

We are very disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to get together and discuss research at the conference, especially because we had an exceptionally strong program of papers this year. We have posted the conference program along with the selected papers, which you can access via this link.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused by the cancelation of the conference.

You are invited to submit papers for the forthcoming Adam Smith Workshop. The workshop will consider papers in all areas of finance, including Asset Pricing, Behavioral Finance, Corporate Finance, Financial Intermediation, Household Finance, and International Finance.

Papers will be presented in two parallel streams, one labeled Asset Pricing (AP) and the other Corporate Finance (CF). There will also be one joint session with papers that study topics related to both Asset Pricing and Corporate Finance.

The workshop will take place on Thursday, 23 and Friday, 24 April 2020 at EDHEC Business School, 393 Prom. Des Anglais, 06200 Nice, France. There will be a conference dinner on Thursday, 23 April.

The deadline for submitting papers is midnight (CET) Friday 13 December 2019. Papers should be submitted at:

There is limited funding available for presenters and discussants to cover travel costs.
