This year we will be awarding three paper awards, the FinaMetrica Behavioral Finance Award, The American College Retirement Income Planning Award. and the PlanPlus Analytical Excellence Award. Furthermore, selected papers will be considered for an expedited review for publication in Financial Services Review.
