The organisers have decided to cancel the event due to COVID-19. Although the situation is improving, many universities are still reluctant to agree on missions abroad. At the moment, the possibility to organise public events in public spaces are also pending under current uncertainty.

The fourth edition of the Salento Macro Meetings will take place in Lecce, Italy on the 21st and 22nd of August 2020.

The Programme Committee welcomes submissions of theoretical or empirical papers addressing issues including (but not limited to):

  • Business cycles fluctuations
  • Monetary and fiscal policy in closed and open economy
  • Imperfect information
  • Firm dynamics and heterogeneity

Invited speakers this year are:

Oleg Itskhoki (Princeton University and CEPR)

Franck Portier (University College London and CEPR)

The workshop organisation will be able to cover accommodation expenses for speakers and discussants. Financial support from the Chair Banque de France at the Paris School of Economics and HEC Paris is kindly acknowledged.

Please send a pdf of your paper to [email protected] and specify whether you are eventually willing to participate to the workshop as discussant.

The deadline for submissions is 31st May 2020.

31/08/2020 3rd Endless Summer Conference on Financial Intermediation and Corporate Finance, Athens

Organizers: Panayiotis Andreou, Ralph de Haas, Hans Degryse, Manthos Delis, Iftekhar Hasan, Sotirios Kokas, Steven Ongena and Dennis Philip

We have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 Endless Summer Conference on Financial Intermediation and Corporate Finance (third edition). This has been a tough decision, but we see no alternative in light of the health emergency caused by COVID-19 and possible future restrictions on international travel. We regret that we cannot go ahead with the conference as planned, as we had a high volume of interesting submissions, but in these extraordinary times, our first priority is everyone's health and safety.
We are now working on planning for the 2021 conference and we will be making an announcement about it soon.
We hope that you and those around you are safe and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Best regards on behalf of all organisers

The academic program starts Monday morning (31 August) and ends Tuesday afternoon (September 1).

There will be 10 papers presented and discussed (mostly by members of the program committee), and two vigorous poster sessions featuring another 10 papers. There will also be ample time for discussion, reflection, and outdoor activities.

Authors will be notified about the acceptance of papers by May/early June 2020 and the conference programme will be released in June 2020.

There is no conference fee and no accommodation cost (for the 2 nights of the conference) for the invited presenters, discussants and chairs; but all participants must cover their own travel costs.

Due to competition and capacity constraints, preference will be given to participants who will stay for the whole duration of the conference.


There is no conference fee or accommodations costs for the invited presenters, discussants and session chairs.

A limited number of free-seats will be allocated to PhD students who would like to attend the conference without presenting (upon presentation of an official letter showing evidence confirming their status).

Faculty or practitioners who would like to attend the conference without presenting must register by August 20, 2020 for a fee of EUR 250
