2017 Symposium


Our conference series explores innovation in data science, highlighting applications to risk management. This year’s topics are Impact Investing and Fintech, and confirmed speakers include Robert Eccles, Kay Giesecke, Alex Papanicolaou and Alex Shkolnik.

The third annual CDAR Symposium, presented in partnership with State Street, will convene on October 27, 2017 from 8:45am to 5:30pm at UC Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium.

The Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR) supports research into innovation in data science and its applications to portfolio management and investment risk. Based in the Economics and Statistics Departments at UC Berkeley, CDAR was co-founded with State Street, Stanford, and the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS). CDAR organizes conferences, workshops, and research programs, bringing together academic researchers from the physical and social sciences, and industry researchers from financial management firms and technology development companies large and small.
