The EFA Doctoral Tutorial is held in a collaborative, open and friendly atmosphere. The selected papers will be distributed well in advance to facilitate lively discussions and questions from student and faculty participants alike. To enhance the collegiality of the tutorial, participants are expected to attend the entire event. In addition, a student whose paper is accepted for the Doctoral Tutorial is also expected to serve as a discussant for one of the other papers.

The paper submission to the Doctoral Tutorial is free. However, once you have been chosen to present your paper, the EFA 2014 membership fee (60 EUR) is due. Authors presenting at the Doctoral Tutorial will receive a free pass for the EFA 2014 Annual Meeting.

Thanks to the generosity of NASDAQ OMX, EFA is able to offer sponsorship possibilities to participants and observers coming from the CEE countries or other economically disadvantaged regions.

All participants will receive a certificate of participation and there will be a group dinner organized for participants of the 2014 EFA Doctoral Tutorial on the evening before the event.
