HKUST Finance Symposium
The HKUST Finance Symposium is an exclusive, two-day conference hosted annually every mid-December by the Department of Finance at HKUST since 2003. The topics alternate each year between asset pricing and corporate finance, both broadly defined. The program allows plenty of opportunities for participants to interact in a convivial, small-group setting. Presenters and discussants are expected to stay for the full two days to maximize the benefit of scholarly discussions and other social events.
Presenters and discussants were by invitation only in early years. The symposium has now evolved to an open-call format with two prominent scholars as invited keynote speakers. The call for papers will be announced in June and the deadline for submission is in late August. Selected papers will be announced in late September and registration will open immediately afterwards. Since seats are limited, early registration is recommended.
