TopQuants Autumn Workshop 2012 – Why should I attend?

The TopQuants Autumn Workshop aims to provide you with lively interaction on technical quant topics. It will offer two rounds of parallel sessions. There will be about five to six parallel sessions in each round. Each parallel session will last for an hour. During a session there will be room for 20-25 participants. At the start of each session, speakers are encouraged to provide a brief introduction before going into more technical details. The presentations will be followed by a discussion between all session participants, including the speaker(s). To facilitate the discussion, sessions will typically be attended by a session host.

And of course, to conclude the event, there will the usual complimentary drinks and walking dinner with plenty of networking opportunities for all participants.

You will have the opportunity to attend two parallel sessions. Whether you pick a topic you are actively working on – or one you have always wanted to get an overview of – there should be something in it for everyone. And you even have a say in what topics we offer…
