An International Conference on Quantitative Finance
Forecasting Financial Markets is an International Conference on Quantitative Finance, organized by the Forecasting Financial Markets Association, which has been held in May/June every year since 1994.
Since its inception, the Conference has grown in scope and stature to become a key international meeting point for those interested in Quantitative Finance, with the participation of quantitative market professionals and of prestigious academic and research institutions from all over the world including major central banks and quantitative fund managers.
The FFM Scientific Committee is composed of both academics and quantitative market professionals to ensure the methodological soundness of the selected contributions and also retain the practitioner's perspective at the same time. Over the years, the Committee has ensured that the presentations were original, high quality and practical.
First Christian Dunis Memorial Prize
Late April this year our dear friend, mentor, supervisor, or colleague, Christian Dunis, passed away after a trying illness. His work and memory lives on through his numerous students, publications, and, more formally, through the Forecasting Financial Markets Association (FFMA), which Christian had the foresight to set up in 2015 in order to give permanence to the work he did to organize for more than two decades the annual Forecasting Financial Markets Conference.
To honor his memory, the directors' board of the FFMA has decided to set up a 500 Euro prize.
