Abstract

We use an objective measure - the ex post rate of publication of presented paper - to document the information content of a presentation at a conference. We select five conferences that are open to all submitters, the selection of papers is based on peer review, and the papers not limited to a specific topic. The sample includes the AFA, the WFA, the UWFC, the EFA, and the FMA. We find substantial cross-sectional variation in the information content of conferences. Presentation at the UWFC is associated with the highest ex post rate of publication and the FMA with the lowest.
