Update - 56th Annual Eastern Finance Association Meeting
Our conference was scheduled to be held in Boston from April 1-4. Unfortunately, as per the declaration by the Governor of Massachusetts banning large gatherings, we could not proceed with that meeting. We considered alternatives, such as postponing the conference or holding it virtually, and concluded that our best course of action was to cancel the conference and focus our energy on our 2021 meeting. We will post a call for papers in July, and hope that you will join us.
We are happy to announce the best paper awards for this year, and thank their sponsors for support.
