An EMS Applied Mathematics school

Thanks to all participants, professors, organisers and everybody who helped to make the Fourth Summer School (Zürich, 2011) a success!

The European Summer School in Financial Mathematics aims at bringing together the most talented young researchers in the field, looking at the very young who only just started their PhD studies. The Scientific Committee consists of European leaders and representatives of financial mathematics. We warmly thank them for their encouragement and for accepting to be part of this committee. Their first and main task is to identify the most promising candidates. The successful candidates will be sponsored for their travel and living expenses during the summer school.

For its fifth anniversary, the European Summer School in Financial Mathematics is back to Paris, and will be held on the campus of École Polytechnique.

The Summer School is centred around one or two advanced courses taught by widely recognised experts. We are particularly interested in a well-balanced combination of theoretical and practical input. We welcome suggestions for topics to cover in the courses. There will also be some students' seminars where the young participants can get teaching experience and discuss their research.

We hope that the Summer School leads to an active cooperation between the various European institutions. We also hope that the Summer School provides an opportunity to open doors for European students amongst different research centres. Our ambition is also to put the foundations for a more visible European network at the doctoral level in the field of financial mathematics. We very much count on the members of the Scientific Committee to help us make this wish a reality.

This school belongs to the series of the EMS Applied Mathematics schools. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the French Federation of Banks (Fédération Bancaire Française) and the ETH Foundation.
