The term “Financial Engineering” came into use after the discovery of the Black-Scholes
Option Pricing Model in the 1973. Their scientific discovery led to a new methodology
to solve practical financial problems. Recently, the rises of many new markets for
derivatives and innovations in information technology have dramatically reduced the
cost of trading standardized financial instruments. This has deeply increased the scope
of financial engineering. As a result, financial engineering is a multidisciplinary
research area that draws from a wide range of quantitative analysis disciplines, such
as artificial intelligence, soft computing, data mining, neuro network,
fuzzy and genetic programming, to optimize and analyze various kinds of financial
decision making. Therefore, there are many scholars make efforts in risk management,
financial portfolio planning, forecasting, trading, hedging, fraud detection,
and other applications. Hence, there has been a growing interest all round the
financial world in research on techniques to aid the fulfillment of these theories.

This special session further builds on the results from these studies, thereby paying
special attention to the interpretation, implementation, and evaluation of the financial
decision models built. We continue the tradition of featuring applications of
computational intelligence to solve real problems in economics and finance.
Papers describing new techniques and/or novel applications are invited. Practical
demonstrations with state-of-the-art numerical methods, econometrics, and AI
methodologies applied to economics or finance are preferably welcomed.

This special session aims at promoting the exchange of ideas not only concepts
and operational basis for artificial intelligent (AI) but also techniques for
implementing and evaluating information systems on economic and financial domain,
forecasting, and analysis. Submissions that derive theories of AI modeling,
construct AI model and apply it to financial market, develop techniques for
linking AI model and other types of models are all welcome. Hence, this session
invites papers that apply AI or other computational intelligence methodologies
to the following topics, but never exclusive:

-Application Areas
-Artificial Stock Markets
-Behavioral Finance
-Experimental Economics
-Financial Engineering
-Financial Data Mining
-Trading Strategies
