Computational Finance (CF99)

Leonard N. Stern School of Business New York University

January 6, 1999 (Tutorials)
January 7 - 8 (Conference)

The sixth international conference on Computational Finance (CF99) will be held at NYU's Leonard N. Stern School of Business. CF99 is sponsored by the New York University Salomon Center, the Center for Research on Information Systems and the Department of Statistics and Operations Research. Computational Finance has emerged as a genuinely cross-disciplinary research meeting. CF99 is the sixth in a series of conferences that have been sponsored by the California Institute of Technology and the London Business School. In the past this conference was called Neural Networks in the Capital Markets (NNCM). The expanding set of computational tools has moved this meeting from its original emphasis on neural network techniques to a broad spectrum of methodologies.

With several hundred attendees, this fully refereed conference has become an international forum where original research in advanced computational applications in finance is presented and discussed. CF99 brings together decision-makers and strategists from the financial industries, with academics from finance, statistics, economics, information systems and other disciplines. In the last few years, the conference has seen papers covering many different computational techniques including: statistical machine learning, Monte Carlo simulation, data mining, knowledge discovery, bootstrapping, genetic algorithms, nonparametric methods, information theory and fuzzy logic. Applications in many different areas are welcome, including but not limited to: risk management, asset allocation, dynamic trading and hedging strategies, forecasting, numerical solutions of derivative PDEs, exotic options and trading cost control.

Studies may cover any major international financial market including equity, foreign exchange, bond, commodity and derivatives. The conference emphasises in-depth analysis and comparative evaluation with established approaches.

CF99 will have two distinguished keynote speakers, Gifford Fong, Chairman, and CEO of Gifford Fong Associates, and David E. Shaw, PhD, Chairman and CEO of D. E. Shaw & Co., Inc.

The conference also features several invited speakers sharing their expertise from both the academic and applied perspectives. CF99 begins with a full day of tutorials designed to inform the diverse group of participants on a selection of the latest tools and research results. This year's tutorials feature the following speakers:

Professor Stephen Figlewski Finance Department, Stern School of Business, New York University
Professor Halbert White Economics Department, University of California, San Diego
Professor David A. Hsieh Finance Department, Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
Professor Benjamin van Roy Engineering Economic Systems Department, Stanford University

The conference will have several talk and poster sessions for accepted papers. A selection of the presentations will be invited to appear in a volume published by Kluwer Academic Publishers.

Submissions to CF99

Authors who wish to present papers should submit four copies along with full contact information, including e-mail addresses, to:

CF99 / Andreas Weigend
Information Systems Department

All submissions must be received by August 31st. 1998. Full papers are preferred, but extended abstracts that clearly state the results are acceptable. Only original, relevant, research work will be accepted.

Registration material will be available on the Web at www.stern.nyu.edu/cf99 from August.

Deadline for early registration is December 1, 1998.

The Stern School: Founded in 1900, the Stern School has grown into one of the most highly ranked business schools in the world. A talented and diverse student body benefits in many ways from Stern's long-standing excellence, top faculty and its central New York City location. Stern offers several specialisations in computational finance that include a highly quantitative MBA financial engineering track, an MS in statistics with specialisation in financial engineering, and PhD programs in the fields of finance, statistics and information systems.

Further conferences, symposia and workshops at Stern for 1999 include Derivatives: What's New?; Market Risk: Advances and Challenges; and Data Mining in Finance.

ACCOMMODATION

A limited number of rooms are available at the Mission Beach Resort through the conference organisation. The room rates are $70 per day (single) or $40 per day (shared room). Information for families of more than two persons is available from the organisers. Other accommodation at Mission Beach is listed on the conference web page http://wwwmaths.anu.edu.au/~pde98 and may be booked directly. It is anticipated that most participants will arrive on Sunday September 6, and depart on Sunday September 13. Meals will be available at the Mission Beach Resort at the following rates for participants:

Tropical breakfast $12
Lunch $10
Dinner $18+

There will be barbecues on the nights of Monday September 7th and Friday September 11th, and a conference dinner on Tuesday September 8th.

EXCURSIONS

Weather permitting, there will be an all-day excursion to the Barrier Reef on Thursday, September 10th. The cost will be $50.00 per person including a light lunch. Other excursions are also available (including an afternoon trip to Dunk Island at a cost of $12.00 per person, prior to the Conference Dinner), and water taxis run frequently from the beach near the Mission Beach Resort to Dunk Island (see the web page).

TRAVEL

The closest international airport is at Cairns, which is connected to Mission Beach by regular bus services. There is an airport shuttle bus that runs regularly from the airport to the Mission Beach Resort at a cost of $25.00 per head. There is also a Greyhound bus that offers two bus services each way per day from Cairns to Mission Beach, at a return fare of $32. The return fare from Townsville is $78. Some visitors may prefer to hire a car in Cairns or Townsville. The distance from either city to Mission beach is approximately 100 km, and takes approximately 2 hours by bus, somewhat less by car. If you choose to use the Greyhound bus you should make a booking in advance (details on web page). We will be arranging a coach from the resort to the airport on Sunday 13 September mid-morning, in time for most people to catch their scheduled flights. We will need to book this in advance and the cost will be approximately $15.00-$20.00 per head depending on numbers. It is also possible to fly to Dunk Island and take a water taxi to the resort.

REGISTRATION

The basic registration fee for participants is $60. Advance payment will also serve as a deposit for accommodation at the Mission Beach Resort. Participants may also pay a full registration fee of $150.00 which includes the two excursions and the conference dinner. Cheques should be made out to PDE98 Conference and to register, participants should complete the following form and return it to

INTRODUCTION

To promote nonlinear science in the Asia-Pacific region we are following the trail blazed by Dynamics Days and starting an Asia-Pacific branch. The Hong Kong conference will mark the beginning of a regular series of conferences that will rotate amongst the Asian-Pacific countries.

VENUE AND DATES

The conference will be held in the Lam Woo International Conference Centre of the Hong Kong Baptist University, 12-15 January 1999.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The conference will contain invited talks, contributed talks and poster sessions. Contributed talks will be selected from submitted papers. To submit a paper you should provide a one-page submission including the title, author(s), and an abstract of less than 100 words. The format of the abstract can be obtained from the website or via e-mail.

ACCOMMODATION

Most participants will be housed in the Dr. Ng Tor Tai (NTT) International House of the Hong Kong Baptist University. This is a brand new housing unit conveniently located next to the conference site.
