June 22 – 27, 2014. Shandong University, JI'NAN & WEIHAI, P.R.China

On the Conference


Our conference on Backward Stochastic Differential Equations (BSDEs) continues a tradition which has its origin in 1996 in France. Its objective is to bring together researchers in the field of BSDEs in the larger sense, to explore new developments in theory, as well as new applications and theories inspired by BSDE approaches. The symposium was held three times in Le Mans, France (1996, 1999 and 2008). Shandong University and Fudan University, China, were the hosts in 2002 (Weihai) and 2005 (Shanghai), respectively. The 6th symposium was held in Los Angeles in 2011. This will be the 7th conference, and it will be the second time that Shandong University has the honor to host the symposium, and it’s also an occasion for the campus of Weihai to show to the participants the big changes it has met since the colloquium in 2002.

The objective of the conference is to present recent works in the cutting-edge topics of Financial Mathematics and BSDEs, and related fields of Stochastic Analysis, Applied Probability and Statistics, but also such recent fields like that of G-expectation and of path-dependent stochastic analysis, heavily related with the theory of BSDEs. The list of topics and related applications concerned by the conference is large, and concerns, in particular,

  • BSDEs with super-linear growth and/or reflections
  • FBSDEs in infinite dimension or with random coefficients
  • Nonlinear BSPDEs and FBSPDEs
  • Numerical Methods for BSDEs/FBSDEs

but also other topics, in which BSDEs are the main object of the studies. However, a particular attention is also paid to recently emerging theories which origin is tightly related with BSDEs,

  • G-expectations and nonlinear martingales
  • BSDEs under G-expectation/2nd Order BSDEs
  • Path-dependent partial differential equations

as well as topics tightly related and applications,

  • Risk Measures/Nonlinear Expectations
  • Mean-field limits and systemic risk
  • General applications in finance, insurance, biology, stochastic control and stochastic differential games 

Our wish is that this scientific event unites the researchers of this large scale of topics and leads to an exchange of knowledge and to discussion between experienced researchers, but also between experienced researchers and postgraduate students, and that it may help to impulse further research in the above indicated research directions or even lead to new research directions in the future.

The workshop is organized by the School of Mathematics of Shandong University, Jinan and Weihai. The workshop will take place in Weihai Campus of Shandong University. The most of the participants will be accommodated in the “International Academic Center, Shandong University (Weihai)” (No.130, North Huanhai Road, Gaoxin District, Weihai City, Shandong Province(山东省威海市高新区北环海路130号)), which is at the seaside,
