The credit crisis continues to impact the financial markets, as well as the global economy. At this meeting, we will hear from two prominent presenters about their insights and experiences on this topic through the lens of quantitative finance. This event will build upon an earlier discussion this past spring, and continue examining the changes in the market crisis and the resulting credit crunch.
Quantitative Finance is part of a new initiative launched in physical sciences and engineering. Given the Academy's new location at 7 World Trade Center and the number of scientists who work in finance, the goal of this symposium is to build community by creating collaborations and developing professional networks between the science and finance communities.
