High Performance Computing Technologies in Finances

15-16 July 2013
Genexis Theatre, Connexis Tower, Fusionopolis, Singapore

We would like to invite you to the High Performance Computing Technologies in Finances Symposium comprising of two days of lectures by leading experts and technologists, and hands-on workshops.
You may also wish to highlight this event to your friends and colleagues who may be interested in the new computational advances in Finances.
Venue: Genexis Theatre, Connexis Tower, Fusionopolis, Singapore
Date:   15 - 16 July 2013
The finance industry requires in-depth computational modelling of market conditions, pricing models, risk models, and contingencies.  To compete internationally, banks and investment companies must perform frequent analysis of current conditions in order to accurately assess risk and benefit of different investment, strategies as well as loan and investment instrument pricing strategies that maximise profitability while minimising risk of loss.
This symposium serves to demonstrate how technologies originating in High Performance Computing are being absorbed in daily practice in the financial industry.  We demonstrate current HPC technologies applicable and beneficial to computational finance and seek financial industry collaboration to work on urgent and timely problems in quickly and accurately performing financial analysis and big data processing.
The intended audience will consist of members of the broader Financial Services community: practitioners operating in the capital markets, policy, risk & surveillance, banking and insurance, and the Finance, IT technical staff, CTOs, CIOs, quants; as well as researchers working on financial modelling or HPC applications in less traditional areas, and MBA and graduate students.
