International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006

Hong Kong, 20-22 June, 2006


The 2006 IAENG International Workshop on Financial Engineering (IWFE'06)


The IWFE'06 workshop is held as part of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006. The IMECS 2006 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), and serves as good platforms for the engineering community members to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Extended version of the papers under this workshop can be included in the special issue of our journal Engineering Letters. And, further extended version can also be included in a book called "Current Trends in Financial Engineering" to be published by IAENG.

Financial engineering refers to the process of employing mathematical finance and computer modeling skills to make pricing, hedging, trading and portfolio management decisions. Utilizing various derivative securities and other methods, financial engineering aims to precisely control the financial risk that an entity takes on.
