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 2023 conference will gather a group of academics to present the best and most innovative new work using field experiments to address economic questions. Previous Advances with Field Experiments conferences convened in 201120162017, 2018, 2019, virtually in 2020, and in 2022

All types of field experiments, including natural, framed, and artefactual field experiments, are encouraged. In particular, we strongly encourage Ph.D. students to participate.
