Hong Kong is one of the most vibrant international financial centers in the world. The financial services sector has been one of the pillar industries in the local economy. As a gateway to the Greater China Region, Hong Kong plays an important role in educating and disseminating knowledge of quantitative techniques in financial applications regionally. As China is shifting from a primarily manufacturing-centric economy to one with increasing weight of financial industry, the demand for market practitioners with advanced quantitative skills has skyrocketed, which surely will make the status of Hong Kong even more prominent.
Hong Kong is also one of the top destinations for international visitors. A perfect combination of the sophistication of an international city, natural beauty, cultural diversity, and cosmopolitan lifestyle are at the very core of Hong Kong's attractions.
The main conference venue will be in Yasumoto International Academic Park (YIA), CUHK.
