The presence of the corona virus and the recent (early September 2020) surge in the number of positive cases (in Europe) makes it impossible to organize the winter school in the format that has been our tradition in the past years, i.e. on location. The organization has decided to postpone the event to January 2022 (precise dates to be fixed), in principle with the same speakers, hoping the spreading of the virus by then has sufficiently diminished to make a safe event possible.

Poster presentations

Participants who would like to present a poster will be given this opportunity. The precise format and scheduling of a poster session will be decided on later, depending on the number of such participants. Participants who want to present a poster are requested to contact the organizers.

Further information, brochure and poster

All information about the time schedule, abstracts, and registration will also be published in our brochure. A poster will be made available too. For further inquiries, please address the organizers (see below), NOT the staff of the conference center.

Organisers

Michel Vellekoop (Research group Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance, Economics and Business, Universiteit van Amsterdam) and Peter Spreij (Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics, Universiteit van Amsterdam and IMAPP, Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen).

Support

The winter school will be supported by
NWO (the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research)
STAR (Dutch mathematics cluster on Stochastics - Theoretical and Applied Research))
Platform Wiskunde Nederland (Dutch national organization that promotes the position of mathematics in The Netherlands)
Stochastic Modelling with Applications in Financial Markets (FWO-WOG network)

FWO WOG Grant

The FWO WOG research network Stochastic Modelling with applications in financial markets has made available a limited number of grants for young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) associated to the network to be used as a waiver of the registration fee for the winter school. For those researchers the grants completely cover the registration fee. For other young researchers a limited number of grants of 250 euro each is available as a reduction on the registration fee for the winter school. Eligible for the grants are with priority those whose supervisor is a member of the network (information about network members can be obtained from the institutional membership list), but others are invited to apply as well. Applications for the grant can be sent by email to both Michel Vellekoop and Peter Spreij (make sure that both are addressed). Applications are required to contain a brief motivation why the grant should be beneficial for the research of the applicant, a brief motivation why the applicant has a specific need for the grant, a (link to) a CV of the applicant and the name of her/his principal supervisor. The deadline for applications is TBA.

AMaMeF

The winter school has previously been supported by AMaMeF, the well established research programme on Advanced Mathematical Methods in Finance of the European Science Foundation (ESF). The programme has terminated in 2010 as an ESF activity, but many activities continue to be held under its flag. AMaMeF has continued as a network of researchers, active in mathematical finance.
