PIMS Summer School and Workshop on the Economics and Math of Systemic Risk and Financial Networks

Month: July 2014

Date: July 21--30

Name: PIMS Summer School and Workshop on the Economics and Math of Systemic Risk and Financial Networks

Location: University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.


Description

As the financial crisis of 2008 and the Flash Crash of 2010 show, the financial networks underlying the world's economy have failed in the past, and may do so again, with catastrophic consequences. Understanding how financial markets generate and propagate risk, and how regulations can help mitigate that risk, is vital to lowering the chance of future financial meltdowns. This July, top financial mathematicians will gather at the University of British Columbia to focus on these crucial issues. The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) will host a summer school on systemic risk from July 21-25 followed by a workshop, featuring more than 15 presentations by top mathematicians and industry representatives, from July 28-30.
