R/Finance 2017 Conference News

The R/Finance 2017 conference has been a great opportunity to meet an active community of practitioners and academics using R for applied finance.

Both presentation slides and video recordings are available on the conference website. This includes Riccardo’s lightning talk about combining RcppParallel and rTRNG to achieve efficient, flexible and reproducible Monte Carlo simulations of credit defaults.

The outstanding conference dinner venue at the rooftop of Wyndham Hotel and the traditional post-conference drinks were a perfect complement to the dense daily program.

Many thanks to the organizers for the great conference experience!
