The conference is open to junior faculty at Southern California universities who have a primary research focus in corporate finance. The conference is organized by LMU finance professors Hai Tran and Julian Zhang.

The 13th California Corporate Finance Conference will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2018. The conference program will be made available two weeks before the conference.
