As his inaugural academic event since his appointment at UCSB, Professor Finn Kydland sponsored a Lab Coat Conference at UCSB in May of 2005. The Lab Coat members are a group of macroeconomists who share interests in varied topical research issues. A number of years ago they formed a group which periodically meets to discuss interesting research in which the members are currently engaged. Many of the members have collaborated and continue to collaborate on research over their professional careers. The members represent a number of universities and institutions across the country. In addition to the Lab Coat members, UCSB Economics Department professors and graduate students attended the conference which was held on the UCSB campus. Chancellor Henry Yang hosted a dinner at his residence for the participants at the close of the conference.
