International Conference on Mathematical Finance and Economics

July 6-8, 2011

Istanbul Technical University – Suleyman Demirel Cultural Center, Istanbul, Turkey

The current wave of globalization is the first human experience of this magnitude along with the unmatched advances in information technologies and electronic trading. This creates challenging new phenomena in the fields of finance, economics and computational science. This conference aims to foster multi-disciplinary scientific interactions and research collaborations to address some of those important topics.

It provides a unique opportunity for researchers, corporate executives, professionals, quantitative analysts and students in mathematical finance and economics to further their knowledge and exposure on the emerging problems in one of the fastest growing financial centers of the World. In addition to the academic and industrial meetings, it is our pleasure to organize bosphorus tour between Sea of Marmara and Black Sea in the conference program. We are looking forward to hosting you in Istanbul.
