Deadline : January 2nd 2024

The Financial Risks International Forum on “Big Data and Algorithmic Finance” is an International Research Forum for academics and professionals organized by the Institut Louis Bachelier.

We invite academics, professionals and regulators to submit research papers for this event, which will take place in Paris on March 18-19, 2024.


The last 40 years have seen huge innovations in computing technology and data availability.
Data derived from millions of administrative records or using new methods of data generation such as text mining are now widespread. Banks, insurance and investors are using an increasing amount of data to understand consumers’ or firms’ behavior, and design investment or trading strategies. Algorithms start to be major players in many areas, and regulations, which were mostly designed for humans, need to adapt to this new environment.

This upcoming 17th Financial Risks International Forum aims to discuss the challenges posed by the use of big data and algorithmic finance. 


Christine A. Parlour, Sylvan C. Coleman Chair at the Haas School, UC Berkeley and co-director of the Berkeley Center for Responsible Decentralized Intelligence.

  • Big data and behavioral finance: social media, digital devices and platforms data
