Invitation to register for TopQuants Autumn Workshop 2014 – Wednesday 12 November

TopQuants – the networking organisation by quants for quants based in the Netherlands – is organising another workshop on:

Current topics in modelling and risk management

The workshop will take place on Wednesday 12 November, with registration starting from 15:15, and sessions lasting until approximately 18:00. After this there will be a buffet dinner and drinks, and the doors will close at around 20:00. The event will be held at KPMG in Amstelveen (Laan van Langerhuize 1, 1186 DS Amstelveen), which is easily accessible by car or by bus/metro from train stations Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA, Amsterdam Zuid or Schiphol.

Following the pre-announcement distributed earlier, this constitutes the official invitation to participate.

The format will be similar to that of the TopQuants Autumn workshops held in previous years, i.e. there will be two slots each offering several parallel sessions. You will have the opportunity to attend one parallel session in each slot. You will find an overview of the sessions offered here. Please let us know which of these sessions you would like to register for. Preferences will be accommodated on a “first come first served” basis.

Experience shows that popular sessions are booked out fast, so please register now in order to get into the session you are most interested in.

Please complete the registration form before October 31st, 2014 to register your participation and to let us know your preferences for the sessions. We reserve the right to close the registration early in case the capacity of the venue has been reached. If the registration has been received successfully, you will receive an e-mail soon thereafter. You can treat this as your confirmation, unless you receive an e-mail from the TopQuants team stating otherwise.

15:15 – Registration and coffee
15:45 – Word of welcome by KPMG and TopQuants
16:00 – First round of parallel sessions

TopQuants Autumn Workshop 2014 – Why should I attend?

Are you interested in technical quant topics? Would you like to know more about what regulation does and how it will impact the work of quants in the Netherlands? Are you curious to hear how quantitative topics are viewed by quants at other banks, financial institutions or academia? Do you appreciate networking opportunities?

The TopQuants Autumn Workshop aims to provide you with just this! It will offer two rounds of parallel sessions. Each parallel session will last for about 50 minutes.

At the start of each session, speakers will 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 be attended by a session host.

To conclude the event, there will be complimentary drinks and a buffet dinner as usual , with plenty of networking opportunities for all participants. We are very grateful that KPMG has agreed to host this TopQuants event and are sure that their hospitality will provide a stimulating and interactive setting for all participants.

So do not delay, but register today! Feel free to forward this invitation to colleagues who you believe would be interested in attending the event, but might not be on our mailing list.

We hope to see you at the event.

Kind regards,

The TopQuants Team
