Academic Conference on Corporate Governance

Academic Conference Group Shot

This annual invitation-only conference highlights the profound research by top professors around the world on issues related to corporate governance and the boardroom. Each year, we accept submissions of working papers related to corporate governance in the fall with the submission deadline typically falling in mid-November. The conference generally takes place in mid-April, and registration typically opens in February.

Topics span a broad array of issues related to corporate governance which include (but are not restricted to) boards of directors, compensation, shareholder activism, mergers, debt as a form of governance, ESG-related issues, political influences on governance, etc.

There is a best paper award of $1,000 sponsored by WRDS.
