The FTG is excited to announce the inaugural Joint Theory-Empirical FTG conference, which will take place at Columbia University on June 30-July 1, 2020. The goal of this conference is to help foster stronger ties between theoretical and empirical finance research.

The conference will feature a mix of theory papers discussed by empirical researchers and empirical papers discussed by theory researchers. It will also include a panel featuring high profile empiricists and theorists, who will share their thoughts about the interaction of finance theory and empirical work in the past and going forward.

A call for papers will follow. The steering committee includes: Wei Jiang, Ron Kaniel, Nadya Malenko, and Neng Wang.
