The Sixth International IMS-FIPS Workshop takes place from July 7-9, 2016 at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.

The primary purpose of the Sixth IMS-FIPS Workshop is to bring together a global cast of leading academic experts, practitioners and junior researchers to share research that underscores the contributions of probability and  statistics to the development of quantititative models, methods, techniques and technologies in the fields of finance and insurance.

To benefit from synergies, the Sixth IMS-FIPS Workshop takes place immediately after the PIMS Summer School 2016 and at the same location. It is followed by the IMS Annual Meeting and World Congress in Probability and Statistics in Toronto, July 11-15.

Plenary speakers of the Sixth IMS-FIPS Workshop include Robert Almgren (Quantitative Brokers), Alvaro Cartea (University of Oxford), Sebastian Jaimungal (University of Toronto), Marcel Nutz (Columbia University), and Ken Seng Tan (University of Waterloo).
