2017 West Coast Experiments Conference

The tenth annual West Coast Experiments Conference was Co-organized by Rodrigo Pinto.

The Conference was held at UCLA on Monday, April 24 and Tuesday, April 25, 2017, preceded by in-depth methods training workshops on Sunday, April 23.  The West Coast Experiments Conference is an annual conference that brings together leading scholars and graduate students in economics, political science, and other social sciences who share an interest in causal identification broadly speaking.  Now in its tenth year, the WCE is a venue for methodological instruction and debate over design-based and observational methods for causal inference, both theory and applications.

Roza Matzkin presented a paper on identification in simulation equation models.

In attendance at this conference were many experts in the field, including Nobel Prize winner Angus Deaton and Turing Awards winner Judea Pearl.
