The corporate finance research intensive meeting forms part of the Financial Research Network (FIRN) program of topic-specific research meetings designed to extend the body of knowledge within a specific research area through the presentation of cutting edge research results and the building of stronger networks. 

The meeting program is held over 1 or 2 days and has a strong emphasis on building upon existing corporate finance-related work being undertaken by Australian based FIRN members. The program includes a presentation by an internationally renown keynote plus several paper presentations and discussions by local members.  Program papers are selected each year via a call for papers which is open to FIRN researchers.  These meetings are not open to PhD students.
