Working Paper, December 9, 2016.

The Twenty-eighth Annual Utah Winter Finance Conference will be held February 8-10, 2018. The opening reception begins Wednesday evening, February 7th. The location is the beautiful Cliff Lodge at Snowbird.

Papers have been selected for the 28th Annual UWFC.

You can select the 2018 Program on the menu above and view the selected papers.

The Utah Winter Finance Conference and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies and the Review of Corporate 
Finance Studies announce a combined submission process. At your choice, your paper submitted to the 
UWFC also will be considered for publication by the RAPS or the RCFS without additional submission fee. 
This is a "no-fault" submission option, which means that if one of the SFS journals decides to review 
your paper and rejects it, you may submit to any SFS journal at a later date as if the paper was never 
submitted.  Please see our website for the rules for submitting your paper to the RAPS or RCFS.

Paper must be submitted by September 10, 2017.  There is a submission fee of $40.  
Authors will be notified of paper selection in November.

We will videotape the presentations and discussions of the 2018 UWFC (and place the videos on our website for future viewing) as was done in past years. In the past years, our website experienced over 10,000 
annual visits by 2,500+ unique visitors from 94 different countries (top 10 countries: US, Israel, United
Kingdom, Brazil, Canada, Germany, China, Italy, Australia, and India).
There is a $1,000 best paper award.  The best paper is selected by a vote of the participants at the end of 
the last session.

    The Utah Winter Finance Conference gratefully acknowledges the financial                                                    support of 
                    The Sam and Diane Stewart Family Foundation
