The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University and the Laboratory for Aggregate Economics and Finance at the University of California Santa Barbara will hold the 8th conference on Advances in Macro-Finance, designed to bring together leading scholars in the field. This year, the conference will be held in Pittsburgh on Friday September 22 and Saturday September 23, 2017. The conference will consist of selected papers with a formal discussant for each paper.

The focus of the conference is on research at the intersection of macroeconomics and finance. We welcome both theoretical and empirical research on topics including, but not limited to: impact of financial and investment frictions; labor markets; credit risk and corporate financing; models of risk premia; determinants of income and wealth inequality; household finance; and taxation. Preference will be given to recent papers that have not previously been presented at major conferences
