Workshop on Dependence Modeling

13 e 14/3/2019

Antonio Gilioli Hall - Bloco A - IME/USP

The Workshop aims at providing a forum for the presentation of state-of-the-art research in the development, implementation and real-world applications of dependence modeling of Industrial Processes, Finance and Actuarial Sciences. It is open to both academic and non-academic communities from universities, insurance companies, banks, and is specifically designed to contribute to fostering the cooperation between practitioners and theoreticians in the field.

Our Invited Speakers are Hedibert Lopes (INSPER), Sabrina Mulinacci (University of Bologna, Italy), Refik Soyer (George Washington University, USA), Flávio Ziegelmann (IME-UFRGS), Cristiano Fernandes (PUC-Rio), Veronica González-López and Jesús Garcia (IMECC-UNICAMP), Carlos Alberto de Bragança Pereira (INMA-UFMS), Fábio Machado (IME-USP) and Eduardo Horta (IME-UFRGS).

REGISTRATION FEE: free for students and professors, R$ 300 (for practitioners)
