Recent years have seen an enormous increase and interest in academic researcg 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 Chicago Experiments Initiative has organized Advances with Field Experiments 2017, a conference that will gather academics to present the best and most innovative new work using field experiments to address economic questions. All types of field experiments, including natural, framed, and artefactual field experiments, are encouraged. In particular, we strongly encourage PhD students to participate.
