This conference seeks to offer a platform for innovative empirical research in microeconomics (including labor, public, development, and industrial organization) and to foster opportunities for future collaboration and mentorship.

The event will take place on September 29-30, 2023 and will consist of a series of presentations on papers at the frontier across microeconomics fields. We will prioritize early-career female economists (i.e., post-docs, assistant professors, and recently promoted associate professors) for presentation slots. Papers will be discussed by invited senior faculty from various institutions.

Papers with generalizable innovations in methodology (including data collection, measurement, modeling, and econometrics) are especially encouraged. Interested researchers are invited to send submissions to bfi-events@uchicago.edu. Extended abstracts will be considered, but we will prioritize complete drafts.

The deadline for submission is February 28, 2023. Decisions will be announced by April 15, 2023.
