Call for Proposals for New Ideas Session at 2022 FMA Annual Meeting

Following on last year’s successes, the Financial Management Association International will hold several New Ideas Sessions at the 2022 Annual Meeting on October 19-22, 2022 in Atlanta, GA.

These sessions will provide people with the opportunity to receive feedback on research that is in its early stages. The ideal stage of research is a project for which you have a clear research question, you can clarify the contribution relative to prior literature, and you potentially have some preliminary results. In addition, these sessions will also provide the opportunity for people to network with other researchers with similar interests.

Each New Ideas session will consist of approximately five papers, on a related topic. Each person will have approximately five minutes to present their New Idea, followed by Q&A. At the conclusion of the session, there will be reserved time for networking among the presenters and other session participants.

At the Atlanta 2022 FMA meetings, these New Ideas sessions will be offered in an in-person format. We invite anybody who plans to be in Atlanta to apply. Preference will be given to assistant professors, and to advanced Ph.D. students. To apply, submit your proposal here by Monday, August 22, 2022.

Please submit a one-page proposal, outlining your research project. This proposal should clearly outline:

  • The main research question, and associated motivation
  • Proposed contribution relative to prior literature

In addition, please specify which of the following areas your new idea fits into:

  • Corporate Finance
  • Asset Pricing / Investments
  • Fintech
  • Behavioral
  • Household Finance

Finally, If you submitted a paper to the Annual Meeting, you may also submit a New Ideas Proposal. However, the New Ideas Proposal must be a different paper.
