The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioneers interested in non-linear dynamical systems and their applications in the areas of econometrics and finance. The focus will be on in-depth presentations of state-of-the-art methods and applications as well as on communicating current research topics. This workshop is intended for industrial and academic participants seeking new ways to measure, to model and to manage unexpected events.


The workshop will be held in the Auditorium Zeger van Hee, college de Valk, Tiensestraat 41, 3000 Leuven in Leuven (Belgium), where one of the world's oldest universities is located. The best connection to Leuven is to fly to Brussels and then to take the train. It will take about 40 minutes. Detailed traveling possibilities together with further information will be given in the second announcement.




Participants will be accommodated in hotels in walking distance from the conference location.
