Given budgetary and time constraints as well as climate concerns, researchers need to decide on which academic conferences to attend. As a basis for decision-making, we track the publication status of 6,805 research articles presented at 87 finance conferences between 2011 and 2015. We then rank these conferences based on publication rates in top finance and economics journals. The ranking shows considerable heterogeneity in conference quality and uncovers three major conference clusters. We further highlight important time trends and the relation between conference size and publication success.
