The European Finance Association will hold its 35th Annual Meeting in Athens (Vouliagmeni), Greece, August 27-30, 2008.

You are invited to submit papers to be considered for presentation at the EFA 2008 meetings. Papers from all areas of finance will be considered. All submitted papers will be double blind-refereed.

The chosen Track Chairs are scholars with substantial editorial and/or refereeing experience for top finance journals.
