Recent years have seen an enormous increase and interest in academic research using experimental methods in the field to address questions across a broad range of topics in economics. Moreover, businesses and governments across many countries around the world are starting to appreciate the power that field experiments can have on the design of products, services, and policies.
The Advances with Field Experiments 2016 conference at the University of Chicago will gather a group of academics to present the best and most innovative new work using field experiments to address economic questions. The conference will expand on the initial 2011 Advances with Field Experiments conference that was held at the University of Chicago.
All types of field experiments, including natural, framed, and artefactual field experiments, are encouraged. In particular we strongly encourage PhD students to participate.
