Dear FTG Community, The Spring 2018 meeting of the Finance Theory Group will take place at MIT on Saturday, May 5, 2018. Moreover, and in addition to the regular FTG meeting, I am delighted to announce that we will hold a special session on Friday, May 4, to recognize the achievements of the 2016 Nobel Laureates Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström, both of whom we are honored to have as FTG Fellows. The tentative plan is as follows: the Friday event will start shortly after lunch; it will include presentations and panel discussions by researchers in contract theory, including Oliver and Bengt of course; it will conclude with a reception and dinner. The organizers are: Andrey Malenko, Marcus Opp, Adriano Rampini, Alp Simsek, and Haoxiang Zhu. This should be a fantastic event, and I very much look forward to it. Best, Philip (on behalf of the FTG board: Ohad, Martin, Marcus, Christine)
