Dear Attendee at the 2022 Annual Meeting of ABF&E and AEF:
This is our Logistics Flyer #1 updating and reminding you of the following key information for attending the conference and presenting your work:

THE CONFERENCE PROGRAM.
  1. The 2022 Conference Program is being finalized for Draft # 1. We expect to send it to you and post it on our website in around a week from this date. A great Majority of presentations, In-Person and/or Virtual, are being scheduled for Thursday and Friday, September 22 and 23 during the hours 8:00 AM to 5:45 PM; PST. The rest, if any, and mainly Virtual, would be scheduled for Saturday, September 24 from 8:00 AM till 2:00 PM. Once you receive Program-Draft I in around 7-10 days from today, you will have enough time to check your planned Session(s) and let us know of any typos or omissions.
  2. Virtual Presentation Option. IF you plan to present your Paper via our Virtual platform, Zoom, for any reason, please let us know of your decision ASAP but by no later than August 21 by emailing us at staff@aobf.org. Once we have the names of individuals who prefer virtual presentation, we will email you/others the needed log in credentials along with a dedicated URL so you can present your paper, hear and see the comments on your presented work, and sit at any other virtual presentation available. In case you miss a Virtual Presentation that you wanted to participate in, we would also make available to you, the Registered Attendee ONLY, the View/Listen-Only version of such presentation(s) soon after the Conference. This means such file(s) can not be saved or shared with anyone else for obvious reasons. To access such files you need to email us your list soon after the conference.
  3. Non-Registered, Non-Paid, Individuals and Immediate Removal of their Paper from the Program. If you are among the very few Non-Registered and Non-Paid individuals and accidentally in the Program Draft, we have no choice but to remove your paper from the Program draft and give your presentation space to those on our Waiting List. Unless, you register AND pay the due Registration Fee by no later than August 10, 2022 (this Date is Final for cancelling any Non-Paid Presenter’s Paper; here is the needed URL to pay: https://www.aobf.org/conference-registration-form/
  4. FINAL VERSION OF YOUR PAPER AND ASSIGNED DISCUSSANTS FOR EACH PAPER Full and Final Papers are DUE BY AUGUST 21. All such papers will be sent to the assigned Sessions Chairs and Discussants by the following Week, August 28. So if you had not sent us your Full and Final paper at the Submission time for review, or if you have a new version, please email us your very Final paper by August 21 at: staff@aobf.org.
PRESENTING YOUR PAPERS AND/OR WORKSHOP AND PANEL
Presentation Equipment. All assigned conference rooms are equipped with a PC computer, projector, and screen for your In-Person presentation purposes. We do not have Apple computers so if you have software that runs on Apple you need to bring your own equipment and needed wires and have it installed well before your presentation.
Power Point Presentation. As a backup plan and for your convenience at the time of presentation, we suggest you email yourself and us a digital copy of your PowerPoint Presentation in case you face difficulty in accessing your file at the conference.
Presentation Time: Given most sessions are 90-minutes long and have three (3) presentations in them, the maximum time for your presentation is 30 minutes. This 30 minutes includes time for in-session Qs&As. We suggest you present your work in around 20-23 minutes so a minimum of seven (7) minutes left for the assigned Discussant. Sessions’ Chairs will keep track of time for each presentation. So please plan accordingly.

AWARD FOR THE BEST DOCTORAL STUDENT PAPER IN BEHAVIORAL FINANCE & ECONOMICS - a Heads-up. If you are a qualified (Single Author) doctoral student and have already submitted - or will submit your Final paper by the Deadline in item IV above, please note the winner will be announced, recognized, and the Award Certificate along with the Prize check will be given during our Thursday Lunch at the conference. If you presented such a paper Virtually, we will mail you, via Certified Express Mail, the Award as just described. We highly encourage all qualified Doctoral Students to participate for this unique Award.

HOTEL CUT-OFF/EXPIRATION DATE TO QUALIFY FOR LOWER CONFERENCE RATES.

Cut-Off Date for Special Conference Rate is September 2, 2022. IF you miss such a deadline, the hotel will release our blocks of rooms to the public and then you may only secure your room(s) based on availability and at higher rates.

FLYING INTO LOS ANGELES: TWO AIRPORTS ARE AVAILABLE For attending the conference you may fly into the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) OR the Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR): https://hollywoodburbankairport.com/ and more info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollywood_Burbank_Airport

The Hollywood Burbank Airport involves much less traffic and is also closer to our conference venue; Hilton Woodland Hills/Los Angeles.

At the end, we wish all of you a very safe and rewarding travel and very much looking forward to seeing you in the "City of Angels", Los Angeles, as planned.
