The Younger Comparativists Committee (YCC) of the American Society of Comparative Law (ASCL) is pleased to invite submissions for its third workshop on comparative business and financial law to be held February 10-11, 2017 at the University of Kansas School of Law in Lawrence, Kansas. The purpose of the workshop is to highlight, develop, and promote the scholarship of new and younger comparativists in accounting, banking, bankruptcy, corporations, commercial law, economics, finance, and securities regulation.
Up to fifteen papers will be chosen from those submitted for presentation at the workshop pursuant to this Call for Papers. The workshop audience will include invited young scholars, faculty from the University of Kansas School of Law and the University of Kansas School of Business, faculty from other institutions, and invited guests.
Submissions will be accepted from scholars who have held a full-time academic appointment for no more than ten years as of June 30, 2017.  
Submission Instructions
To submit an entry, scholars should email an attachment in Microsoft Word or PDF containing an abstract of no more than 1000 words by 5:00 P.M. EST, October 21, 2016, to the following address: ylhuggins@ku.edu.   Please title the email “YCC Business Law Workshop – [Name].”  Abstracts should reflect original research that will not yet have been published, though may have been accepted for publication, by the time of the workshop.  Abstracts should include a cover page with the author’s name, title of the paper, institutional affiliation, contact information, as well as the author’s certification that she/he qualifies as a younger scholar as defined above.  
In order to facilitate double-blind review, please ensure that identifying information is only on the cover page and is redacted from all other pages of the submission.
Scholars may make only one submission.  Both individual and co-authored submissions will be accepted.  For co-authored submissions, at least one author must qualify as an eligible younger comparativist.
Invitees will be selected via a blind review by the workshop program committee.  Authors of the submissions selected for the workshop will be notified no later than November 18, 2016.  There is no cost to register for the workshop but participants are responsible for securing their own funding for travel, lodging and other incidental expenses.  A limited number of $200 travel stipends may be awarded to scholars who demonstrate financial need.  If you would like to be considered for a travel stipend, please make that request in your submission.
Final papers for the workshop will be due no later than January 20, 2017.
