Next Generation Models of Financial Data

Kick-off Meeting in Raitenhaslach 

20 September 2021 00:00 – 22 September 2021 00:00
TUM Science & Study Center in Raitenhaslach: the prelate's wing of the former Cistercian monastery Raitenhaslach

The former monastery in Raitenhaslach: The extensive restautated prelate’s wing is home to the TUM Science & Study Center.

Next Generation Models of Financial Data: In order to intensify cooperation on this topic, a Kick-off Meeting takes place in September 2021. 

Three days of talks, activities and project work

The aim of the three-day meeting is to resume in-person activities of academic work, which have been on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our priority is to further opportunities for collaborations in the field of financial mathematics between the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Imperial College London (ICL) within our Mathematical Sciences Hub, as well as to strengthen existing collaborations (both within academia and with the financial industry) and to facilitate an integration of these networks into the Hub.

The Kick-off Meeting consists of stimulating talks, discussions, and ample opportunities for in-depth exchange. Contents will cover machine learning methods in financial mathematics, in particular generative methods and signature methods. Speakers from academia and industry hold the plenary talks. They are aimed at participants at graduate level or above. 

The meeting on Next Generation Models of Financial Data is also a meeting opportunity for the scientists involved in the project "Machine Learning Tools for Adversarial Optimisation" within the second cohort of the Joint Academy of Doctoral Studies (JADS) "Mathematics of Information: Theory and Application", which takes up its work in October 2021.

When and where?

TUM Science & Study Center Raitenhaslach: ceremonial hall – Aula maior

The Kick-off Meeting on "Next Generation Models of Financial Data" takes place 

  • from 20 to 22 September 2021 
  • at the TUM Science & Study Center Raitenhaslach
    Address: Raitenhaslach 11, 84489 Burghausen

Because of the ongoing Corona pandemic, the meeting is designed as a hybrid event, with talks in-person accompanied by online talks. On-site activities will take place spread in the main Ceremonial Hall and three smaller seminar rooms.


Blanka Horvath, tenure track professor for Financial Mathematics at the TUM Department of Mathematics, is the organizer of the Kick-off Meeting. Financial support is given by the TUM-ICL Mathematical Sciences Hub.
