First International Workshop in Financial Econometrics, Natal, October 14-15, 2013

The FIRST INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP IN FINANCIAL ECONOMETRICS will be held in Natal, Brazil, on October 14-15 of 2013 at the Sehrs Natal Grand Hotel (http://www.serhsnatalgrandhotel.com). The workshop will consist of invited talks (with discussion) and a poster session. Each talk will last 40 minutes plus 20 minutes of discussion and questions. The confirmed participants are Tim Bollerslev, Dennis Kristensen, Michael Wolf, Peter Hansen, Asger Lunde, Andrew Patton, Kevin Sheppard, David Veredas, Eric Hillebrand, Rickard Sandberg, Caio Almeida and Marcelo Fernandes. The poster session will be an important part of the conference and the idea is that poster presenters will benefit from the discussion with the other participants of the workshop as well as with the invited speakers.

The program committee invites submissions of papers to be presented as a poster and welcomes and encourages contributions by young scholars and graduate students.

Prospective contributors are invited to submit their papers by Friday, August 16, 2013 to Marcelo C. Medeiros (mcm@econ.puc-rio.br). Please provide complete contact details in your submission. This includes affiliation, position, email addresses, and websites of authors and presenters. Notification of acceptance will be send no latter than Friday, August 30. The deadline for registration is September 15, 2013. There is neither submission nor registration fees. Special rates have been negotiated with the hotel (R$ 400,00 per night), such that participants willing to stay at the Sehrs must clearly mention this in the submission email such that we can book the room. However, payment arrangements should be made directly with the hotel.
