5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Statistical Methods for Computational Advertising
19 Apr 2020 - 24 Apr 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Computational advertising is a multi-billion dollar business, but it has received little attention from academic statisticians. Nonetheless, this collection of pricing models, keyword auctions, A/B tests, and recommender systems depends heavily upon statistical methodology in nearly every aspect of its performance. This program will bring together scientists from the information technology companies and university] researcher to collaborate on new methods to enable consumers to only see ads for things they actually want to buy, and to enable manufacturers to save advertising budget by accurately targeting interested customers.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Stochastic Analysis, Mathematical Finance and Economics
24 May 2020 - 29 May 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Probabilistic tools, together with a variety of methods from stochastic, functional and convex analysis and partial differential equations are routinely used in mathematical finance and economics; in fact, the field draws from a host of other mathematical disciplines to accomplish its goals. Prior advances in this field have not only made a huge impact on the practice of finance and regulation, but have also inspired a number of breakthroughs in related areas of mathematics traditionally regarded as theoretical. In this workshop, we bring together a group of experts and young researchers in various sub-areas of mathematical finance and economics, with a special focus on those whose work draws heavily on stochastic analysis. Our goal is to foster a free interchange of ideas and facilitate sharing of some of the recent results in this challenging field.

5 Day Workshop at BIRS — Modeling, Learning and Understanding: Modern Challenges between Financial Mathematics, Financial Technology and Financial Economics
28 Jun 2020 - 03 Jul 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
This 5-day research workshop at the Banff International Research Station is motivated by the need to better understand, quantify and regulate the risk of financial markets in the face of massive technological and economic changes. In order to discuss and assess these new developments, the workshop brings together experts from the fields of financial mathematics, financial technology (FinTech), and mathematical economics. The focus lies on the following three topics which are at different levels of modeling development and technical complexity: (i) interbank markets, valuation adjustments and clearinghouses, (ii) energy and commodity markets, (iii) FinTech and high-frequency trading.
