The interactions between stochastic control, optimal stopping, mathematical economics and mathematicalfinance will be at the core of the conference. This event will bring together leading experts and promising young researchers from different scientific backgrounds, interested in the interplay between theoretical and applied research. New developments in some of the most active research fields will be presented, such as: robustfinance, backward stochastic differential equations, non-linear expectations and non-linear optimal stopping, singular stochastic control, model-freefinance, principal-agent problems, mean-field games, behavioural finance, market equilibria. The conference will place an emphasis on the connections between the areas and on directions for future research. We expect a high-level and high-impact event which will inspire new collaborations and will open avenues for new applications.
