Welcome to Princeton Quant Trading Conference!
The Princeton Quant Trading 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.
Opportunity: Our sponsors want to meet interested students 1-on-1 at the conference to discuss employment opportunities. If you would like to participate, send us your resume and we'll forward it to them. If they are interested, they'll reach out directly. Please follow the instruction on the confirmation page/Email to upload your resume.
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.
In addition to this year’s Fall Princeton Quant Trading Conference, which will be held on Saturday, October 22nd at Illinois Institute of Technology Stuart School of Business, we will also be hosting the Princeton-QuantConnect Algorithmic Trading Workshop on Sunday, October 23rd from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
Our workshop has been developed and will be led by the Jared Broad, Founder of QuantConnect. QuantConnect is a team of experts with a vision of helping others grow their algorithmic strategies and software. The platform invests its time into making sure its users are given the most efficient tools possible when developing trading strategies, along with helping them distribute their strategies to investors and other growing enterprises.
The curriculum of the workshop will allow participants to develop their own algorithms and trading strategies. There will be an introductory presentation of QuantConnect and basics of the platform followed by various topics and discussions. There will also be a Free-Style Write Your Own Algorithm Competition.
We’re offering two tiers of tickets:
- Student tickets are $120
