Co-directed by John List (UChicago) and Julio Elias (UCEMA), JILAEE is a new initiative established to design and implement field experiments in Latin America.
The conference will be held at the Universidad del CEMA (UCEMA) in downtown Buenos Aires, nearby many places of interest, including Puerto Madero, San Telmo, the Colon Theater, MALBA and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes.
We are pleased to announce three keynote speakers for the main conference:

The main conference will be preceded by the JILAEE Early Career Workshop on Field Experiments led by John List from February 22-24, 2021. The aim of the workshop is to expand the research tools of PhD students, postdocs, junior faculty, and other early career economists to conduct field experiments, and provide them with an opportunity to present their research designs. We especially encourage applications from scholars from (or interested in doing research in) Latin America.
