Dear FTG Members and Fellows, The 16th meeting of the Finance Theory Group (FTG) will take place on March 17-18, 2017, at the University of Colorado-Boulder and will be organized by Diego García, Ed Van Wesep, and Shaun Davies. The conference will begin Friday afternoon with lunch from 1:30 pm to 2:45 pm.  Paper presentations will start Friday at 3:00 pm and conclude at 5:00 pm, followed by the member meeting.  We will be organizing dinners in small groups. The conference will resume on Saturday morning.  Breakfast will be available at 8:00 am and paper presentations will begin at 8:30 am.  Paper presentations will conclude at 11:30 pm.  Lunch will be held from 12:00 pm until 1:30 pm. Also, March is one of the finest months for Colorado skiing.  With some of the world's best ski resorts within a two hour drive from campus, you may want to extend your trip.  Please indicate your interest in skiing with other FTG members on your registration form.  If there is sufficient interest, we will organize an "unofficial" FTG skiday. The deadline for registration and paper submission is Tuesday, February 7, 2017. You can fill out the participation form for the conference here: https://goo.gl/forms/L8kM3Zd5q2OZLuSl1.
