EFA Membership & Conference Registration

PhD students submitting applications for the EFA Doctoral Workshop do not have to be current EFA members to be eligible for this event. However, those students whose applications are accepted for the 2022 EFA-DW will each receive a complimentary EFA membership for the current calendar year (if not already a member) and free registration for the 49th EFA Annual Meeting (which is a members-only event) to enable them to participate.

Submission Guidelines

ConfTool is the online system being used to submit applications for the EFA Doctoral Workshop.

Once registered as a ConfTool User  submitters should follow the steps below.

Step One: Track choice

Select the Doctoral Workshop track.

Step Two: Contribution information

Provide the required data on the Author (Student) and Contribution (Letter)

Step Three: Upload files

The contribution (application letter) can be uploaded via ConfTool. Note that student authors may upload new versions of the document until the 15th of March – but not after the application submission deadline has passed.

Submitting student authors will be asked to upload three documents in PDF format:

  1. Application Letter (one page)
  2. Author / Student's CV
  3. Letter of Recommendation from the PhD Advisor or Coordinator on official institutional letterhead (preferably signed & stamped with an official seal). The letter should be issued from the home university and confirm the PhD student’s enrolment status and topic of doctoral research.  This letter forms part of the selection process – so should be like a letter of motivation with information about your PhD (year and which school), your research and why/how it is important for you to attend the EFA Doctoral Workshop.


If you have any inquiries or encounter difficulties with the EFA-DW application process, please contact the organizers via e-mail (phd-efa@european-finance.org).
