The presenters, from Harvard, Penn State, University of Michigan State University, Ohio State, University of California-San Diego, University of Chicago and other Ivy league universities, discussed their work on value investing and related topics, such as market anomalies and value versus growth investing.

Congratulations to the symposium organizer and chair, George Athanassakos, and the scientific committee including Walid Busaba, Saurin Patel and Felipe Restrepo. The 6th annual event was a great success and sold out with 50 North American academics in attendance.
