Practitioner Seminar - 23rd January 2019
31st October 2018 – deadline for submission of papers.
The next Practitioner Seminar will be held on 23rd January 2019 and will be hosted by Goldman Sachs at their offices in the City of London.
If you expect to come in close to the deadline, it would be helpful to have an expression of interest and provisional topic as early as you can make it.
One or two external practitioners have also expressed an interest, but members will have priority.
Guidelines for papers will be similar to those for academic speakers, except
- Innovation and academic rigour are good but SO WHAT? is crucial.
- Existence of a paper (in due course if not now) is good, but only slides or equivalent are essential. These will be needed 10 days before the seminar for copying etc. However, the more detail on the presentation that can be provided, the better the chance that it will be selected.
- Presentations must not under any circumstances be sales pitches.
- Some of the more analytical papers will have an academic discussant (as we had at the last seminar). However, we would also encourage the submission of more general practitioner-oriented papers.
The Institute for Quantitative Investment Research - Annual Residential Seminar 2019
The Institute for Quantitative Investment Research (INQUIRE) aims to bridge the gap between academic research and investment management practice. We now invite submissions of completed research papers for presentation at the 2019 INQUIRE Seminar. Members of both INQUIRE UK and INQUIRE Europe will be in attendance.
We welcome submissions of innovative research papers in any area of research relevant to investment management practice. Preference will be given to papers focusing on new analytical methods and/or new sources of data offering new investment insights, in line with the conference theme: New Data, New Methods.
Papers will be selected by the INQUIRE Council and authors notified by 30 October 2018.
The INQUIRE Prize Committee will award a £3000 prize to the authors of the best paper presented.
