Spring School
"Stochastic Control in Finance"
March 07-18 2010, ROSCOFF (France)
(the 8th of March is the start day)

Following the tradition of our events introduced in Jena and Manchester, the University of Brest is very pleased to get the opportunity to host the both scientific events (school and workshop), in March 2010 organized in the frame of our Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) "Deteministic and Stochastic Controlled Systems and Applications".

The Spring School will be organized around the main subjects "Stochastic Control, Games, Finance". We would like that the scientific events of our ITN play a central role in the exchange of knowledge between experienced researchers and Early Stage Researchers and impulse the further work of our network. They will take place in Roscoff, a very nice small town (with historical centre) situated directly at the North coast of Finistère (Brittany). All participants will be accomodated in the hotel of the Conference Centre.

Lectures and Contributed Talks:

The invited researchers, who  have agreed  to contribute with a lecture at our school, are kindly asked to send us the title of their lecture as well as an abstract. Lectures of participants can be submitted together with the registration. A paragraph is dedicated to this purpose on the registration form. The length of the lectures will be discussed individually with the contributing researcher.

Talks given by the ESR and other participating PhD students:

Following the tradition of the first scientific events of our ITN in 2009, we would like to give to the PhD recruited students of our ITN and also to the other participating PhD students, the opportunity to present in short talks their scientific results. Special afternoon sessions will be dedicated at this intention.
