Approximately 12 papers will be selected for presentation from all the submissions received. Each paper will be assigned a discussant, and there will be ample time for questions and comments from the audience. No parallel sessions.

Submission and selection

Papers in all areas of corporate governance are welcome. The selection of papers will be made in two separate steps. Extended paper abstracts (up to 250 words) must be submitted by June 20, 2014. The Program Committee will make a first selection of papers based on these abstracts. We will notify the authors by July 10, 2014 whether they have passed this first hurdle.

Successful authors from the first round will need to submit a full version of their paper by August 20, 2014. The authors of the accepted papers will be notified by September 1, 2014. Authors of accepted papers are expected to act as discussants.

Please submit via email to cg2014@bi.no, stating "Submission for 15th Workshop on Corporate Governance and Investment" in the subject line of your email. There is no submission fee.
