Mathematics in Finance



The purpose of this conference is to create a collaborative environment for academics, postgraduate students and practitioners who are working in the broad areas of quantitative finance, risk and business data analytics. We envisage that senior delegates will use this opportunity to reflect on open problems and relevant challenges in these areas, and to point to avenues for future research. We further hope that the interplay between theory and practice, and issues relating to the dissemination of knowledge and teaching in these fields, will be considered.
