Summer School in Risk Finance and Stochastics
The Summer School on Risk Finance and Stochastics started in 2003 in Samos, as an attempt to bring together students and academics both young and senior to present, reflect and discuss in a relaxed environment certain aspects of the fascinating field of stochastic mathematics and its close connection with risk finance and insurance. Over the years it moved to various places, depending on funding and circumstances, however, our rendez vous was always punctual and anticipated by all. For several years we were hosted in Samos, then Chios, then Nafplio and of course Athens. No matter what the place were, we always had the honour of having with us world class academics who masterfully guided the participants through the elegant and important constructions of their current research and brilliant and eager to learn young researchers and students in the first steps of their career, the interplay among which always resulted in a creative and friendly atmosphere that we fondly remember. Naturally, this would not be possible without the constant and generous funding of AUEB and the University of the Aegean.
Not wishing to postpone our usual meeting for a year, this year the School decided to move to the WWW, on account of the current situation, hoping to get back to its usual mode of operation next year. To make up for the loss of the ``social mingling element’’ of the school, this year we have the means to open the school to a wider audience and the honour of having with us top academics guiding us through the recent developments on Risk Finance and Stochastics.
