Conference announcement & Call for papers:
McGill University / IFM2
Risk Management Conference
Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada
March 24-26, 2006


The McGill Finance Research Centre, in partnership with the Institut de Finance Mathématique de Montréal, is organizing a conference in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec. We encourage the submission of academic papers on all facets of risk management (corporate, credit, operational. derivatives, asset pricing). Each accepted paper will be given generous time and will be assigned a discussant. Papers should not be scheduled for publication prior to submission. The conference will consist of a morning and afternoon session on Friday and Saturday, and a morning session on Sunday. This will leave time for informal interaction in the middle of each day.

Please email a pdf file with your paper to jan.ericsson@mcgill.ca and peter.christoffersen@mcgill.ca as soon as possible and no later than November 30th, 2005. The selection procedure will be completed before the end of the year. Please indicate whether you would be willing to discuss a paper or act as session chair, should your paper not be included in the program.
