The YARO workshop is a 2 day event and provides an opportunity for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and other young academics to share their research and debate approaches as well as network with like-minded fellow researchers.
We welcome real options papers from any field, e.g., competition and strategy, R&D, entrepreneurship and innovation, new product development, capabilities, infrastructure and network investments, valuation of natural resources, commodities and power investments, growth options, corporate valuation and IPOs, investments involving learning, agency issues and incentives, environmental protection and public policy.

Each participant is offered up to 30 minutes to present her/his paper in depth.
Each presented paper is summarized for up to 10 minutes by a discussant raising questions and giving advice, followed by a 5 minutes Q&A between the audience and the presenter.

1st YARO Workshop in Leipzig/Germany
The 2017 edition of the workshop is held on 2-3 March 2017 and takes place in Leipzig, Germany at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. HHL is Germany's oldest business school, founded in 1898. It is a private university focusing on graduate and post-graduate education. Today approximately 650 students are enrolled at HHL and since its reestablishment in 1992, after the end of the GDR, roughly 2000 students graduated at the university.
With a history going back almost 1,000 years, Leipzig has earned more than a few claims to fame – as a city of music, of commerce, of heroes, as the site of the Peaceful Revolution, as Little Paris, Athens on the River Pleisse, and the Venice of the North. In recent years this Saxon metropolis has become Germany’s fastest growing city approaching the number of 600,000 inhabitants. It is a center for culture serving music connoisseurs as well as art lovers. Beyond that, Leipzig offers a thriving coffee house culture and traditional pubs, a plenty of shops in the intricate network of historical passageways and arcades, and a host of highly attractive leisure and recreational activities, not to mention a vibrant and diverse night life.
We have made arrangements with three hotels of different categories that hopefully suits all participants' travel budgets. All three hotels are located directly in the city center of Leipzig, just a few metres away from each other.
We reserved single rooms and you can choose between an option with and without breakfast. To make a reservation, please contact the hotels directly via email or phone and refer to the booking reference "real options" (same for all three hotels). The three hotels also offer good rates for double rooms.

The Young Academics in Real Options group is an initiative by Maximilian Schreiter and Nick Huberts. The group intends to provide a platform for academics in their early career to build a network and to offer a sounding board. During our annual workshop young academics have the opportunity to intensively discuss their current research and debate upon new ideas. Maximilian and Nick are PhD candidates at the HHL Leipzig and Tilburg University respectively.
