Description: 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 relaxed intellectual environment to catalyze discussions and strengthen ties across traditional boundaries. We will cover subjects ranging from high-frequency algorithmic trading and statistical arbitrage to model construction and validation. This event also provides a unique opportunity for leaders and students in quant trading related fields to directly interact. The student and young alumni organizing committee is exclusively volunteer and 100% of all proceeds go to support education nonprofits fighting for economic mobility for underprivileged students. We’re building a legacy for the conference that extends beyond the ivory tower into the greater community.

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. 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.
