Workshop on High-performance computing applied to Finance (HPCF 2010)

August 30, 2010, Ischia, Naples, Italy

held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2010
16th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing


Financial analysis techniques have become fundamental tools for firms management, regulation and control since the Nineties; the models for values and risks evaluation must be consistent with the ones that are employed in capital market - “market-consistent evaluation”. The discussion arisen from the financial crisis has highlighted that this methodological approach is mandatory for accurate and reliable companies financial management.
The high complexity of computations needed to properly estimate values and risks in this framework and the need to perform timely measurements in order to carry out continuous verifications require advanced computing architectures, able to guarantee reliable results and efficient information exchange.
The focus of the workshop is on the computational issues in the evaluation of financial instruments on advanced architectures.
The workshop is intended to bring together academics from finance, statistics, numerical analysis and computer science, decision-makers and strategists from the financial industries and regulators from supervisory authorities in order to discuss recent challenges and results in using high-performance technologies for the evaluation of financial instruments.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) applications to Finance of:
* Parallel algorithms
* Parallel/distributed and network-based computing: cluster computing, grid
computing, cloud computing, multi-core and many-core parallel computing,
GPU computing
* Performance analysis tools
* High performance data processing
* Advanced Monte Carlo techniques
* Parallel pseudo-random numbers generators
