The main objective of the conference is to bring together academics, practitioners and graduate students who are working in the broad field of financial mathematics. It is envisaged that participants who are at the forefront of the area will reflect on current open problems and relevant challenges and that they will indicate directions for future research. It is hoped that the interplay between theory and practice as well as issues relating to the dissemination of knowledge and the teaching in this field will be discussed.

The conference will focus on various aspects within the field, with special attention given to the interaction between the different areas and in particular emphasizing the role of mathematics and statistics. Topics that would be covered include among others:

Stochastic models
Modern methods of risk analysis
Quantitative and computational models and methods
Methods of financial mathematics; in particular the role of measure theory, functional analysis and modern stochastics in Finance
