Topic: Commercial Real Estate Investment and Risk
The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for leading scholars to present recent research to a select audience of their peers. The symposium will embrace a wide spectrum of topics concerning investment and risk in commercial (income producing) real estate. Topics can focus on U.S. markets or other
markets of the world, and may concern real estate debt or equity. Geographic scope can be either economy wide or at an urban or regional level, as is
suitable to the subject. Policy issues also may be of interest for their potential effect on markets, value and risk.
We invite you to submit a paper for presentation. We will select eight to ten papers. The papers presented will be considered for submission, at the invitation of the editors, for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics, unless the author(s) choose otherwise. The symposium is pleased to reimburse transportation and hotel expenses for presenting/attending author(s) up to $1,500 total for each paper presented, as well as all on-site meal costs.
