Hi @Jacob, QuantCon 2019 will run from April 3rd - April 5th, 2019. The first two days will consist of algorithmic trading workshops, followed by the main conference on the 5th. We will be releasing a more detailed schedule and agenda within the next few weeks.

This looks great Paige. I think we may have a couple team members attend. Regarding topics, would new technologies be an interesting talk? Our world is crypto technology and its impact on quant trading and thought it might be something others would like to learn about or discuss.

Thank you to everyone who submitted talks for QuantCon 2019. We had many compelling presentations to choose from this year and are looking forward to a great conference in 2019.

@Dan Thanks for your note, Dan. Apologies for not getting back to you sooner. Our speaker line-up filled up pretty quickly this year. I hope your team members are able to join us for the conference!
