Next workshop organized by the CIF


“Quantitative Behavioral Finance”

will take place 8-10’th of December 2010 at

the Théâtre du Grand Château,

Nice Sophia Antipolis University


Including quantitative tools, the workshop will serve as a roadmap of how to take traditional Behavioural Finance/Economy one step further to a new Behavioural Finance/Economy 2.0 edition. The two main goals of the workshop are:

i) To serve as a window offering new interdisciplinary methodologies  applied to Finance/Economy;

ii) To provide a forum where an active research network can create new contacts and hear leaders in their fields presenting a view on how to promote interdisciplinary research in the areas of Finance and Economy.

The format of the workshop will therefore be partly talks, partly round table discussions.
