About this Event

Welcome to The Princeton Fintech and Quant Conference!

The Princeton Fintech and Quant Conference seeks to bring together a unique cross-section of the leading experts from academia, industry, and government in a low-key intellectual environment to catalyze discussions and strengthen ties among these three communities. We will cover subjects ranging from algorithmic trading and liquidity to market impact and the flash crash.

The biggest trend right now in the Fintech space is blockchain technology. While Database and Networking technologies have evolved separately over the years, blockchain is at the intersection of these technologies and it enables systems that maintain a single version of data across a network using consensus algorithms. These consensus algorithms are based on cryptography concepts. This year's conference will feature speakers from this space as well as educational talks and workshops.

Objective: Unfortunately, academia, government, and industry operate within separate silos with industry and government often unable to keep up with each other’s developments or the remarkable advances in academia. This conference seeks to break down these barriers and spur future collaboration and research between these three communities.

We’re offering two tiers of tickets:

  1. Student tickets are $120
  2. Non-Student Young Alumni tickets are $300

  1. Mehdi Aourir - Robinhood
