Workshop of the German Operations Research Society (GOR e.V.)
Working Group on Financial Management and Financial Institutions (GOR AG FIFI)
We would like to invite researchers and practitioners to participate in the workshop of the German Operations Research Society (GOR e.V.) hosted at the H. The goal of the workshop is to bring together academics and practitioners to provide a unique platform to discuss the latest theoretical and empirical research from all relevant areas of — including but not limited to — financial management and financial institutions, risk management and financial markets, banking and financial intermediation or quantitative methods in risk management. The workshop participation is free of charge for GOR members and affiliates of the organizing institutions; there might be a service charge for refreshments.
The German Operations Research Society (Gesellschaft für Operations Research, GOR e.V.) has a longstanding tradition beginning with the “Arbeitskreis Operations Research (est. 1956)” and the “Deutsche Gesellschaft für Unternehmensforschung (est. 1961)”, and eventually led to the GOR as it is today. The GOR now represents around 1,200 members consisting of individuals and institutions from academia, industry and management.
The working group Financial Management and Financial Institutions (GOR e.V. Arbeitsgruppe Finanzwirtschaft und Finanzinstitutionen (GOR AG FIFI)) is one of the oldest working groups within the GOR working on a broad range in financial modeling with strong focus on quantitative research.
We invite in particular young researchers and scientists to submit abstracts on all relevant topics in the abovementioned fields of financial research. The extended abstract (2 pages, no full papers) should provide information about the motivation and goal of the research topic, the methods used as well as
the main results and key findings. The submission should be accompanied by a cover page including title, names and contact details of the authors.
The deadline for submission is on
