Dependence Modeling in Finance, Insurance and Environmental Science

May 17-19, 2016 in Garching-Forschungszentrum

In our complex and interrelated world, taking care of dependence is a key task for success in stochastic modeling. The copula framework takes a pivotal role in this area. The conference will bring together researchers from different methodological view points and application areas to provide an up to date forum on dependence modeling and their challenges in view of big data issues. This conference is a continuation of workshops held in Delft (2007, 2008), Oslo (2009), Munich (2011), and Beijing (2014). While the first workshops were focused on vine copulas (, the theme of the last workshop was much broader. This workshop is intended to continue with this broader view.
