Paper Presentations Sponsors


While the Silicon Prairie Finance Conference was postponed until next year, we want to provide researchers from the four schools an opportunity to showcase their work. Join us Wednesdays (dates below) at 2-3.15 p.m. for paper presentations and discussion. Webinars will include one paper presented at each session over the course of the next few months. Each presentation will be for an hour with questions and comments throughout the presentation. Zoom links for the webinar will be emailed promptly and will also be available upon registration.
