ZiF Research Group Closing Conference

Robust Finance and Beyond

Convenors: Frank Riedel (Bielefeld, GER), Chris Shannon (Berkeley, USA)

Date: May 30–June 3, 2015

The closing conference of the ZiF Research Group “Robust Finance” is devoted to the ongoing topic of how to increase the stability of financial markets. In particular, the conference addresses issues related to the market power exerted on financial markets, a subject which is still very insufficiently understood. Furthermore, ideas for follow-up projects emerging from the work of the research group are going to be discussed.

Leading researchers from all over the world – from Berkeley and Chicago in the United States, from the Sorbonne in Paris, and from the Australian National University in Canberra, to name only a few – are going to present the results which they have obtained as members of the research group.

The conference is being organized by the two convenors of the research group, Prof. Frank Riedel (Director of the Center for Mathematical Economics (IMW) at Bielefeld University) and Prof. Chris Shannon (University of California, Berkeley).
