The 24th CEPR/Study Center Gerzensee European Summer Symposium in Financial Markets (ESSFM) will take place in Gerzensee from 15 to 26 July 2013. The Organising Committee for this symposium consists of: Dirk Niepelt (Study Center Gerzensee and CEPR), Adriano Rampini (Duke University and Harvard University) and Anna Pavlova (London Business School and CEPR).

The meeting will include daily seminars in the morning, in which participants present their work, as well as less formal evening seminars scheduled at the beginning of the Symposium. A substantial amount of time is reserved for independent work and collaborative research, which provides participants with a unique opportunity to interact and discuss each other's research.

In addition, four mornings will be devoted to 'focus sessions', each of which concentrates on some recent developments in corporate finance (week one) and asset pricing (week two). Focus sessions for the corporate finance week will be organised by Patrick Bolton (Columbia University and CEPR) and Amit Seru (University of Chicago). The focus sessions for the asset-pricing week are organised by Bruno Biais (Toulouse School of Economics and CEPR) and Arvind Krishnamurthy (Northwestern University).
