An international conference on Financial Engineering, E-commerce, and Supply Chain will take place in Athens Greece, during the period of May 24-27, 2001.
Fueled by an explosive growth of computer and information technology, telecommunications, globalization, and extraordinary theoretical advances, Financial engineering, E- commerce and Supply Chain, have become the core activities of today's economies.

Financial Engineering focuses upon the fundamental principles of corporate finance and investment science such as cash flow streams, arbitrage, risk aversion, pricing of firms and finance instruments, interest rate term structure, fixed income instruments duration, bond portfolio immunization, and the Markowitz mean-variance portfolio theory.

One of the fastest growing elements of the Internet is electronic commerce, which refers to the use of electronic means to conduct business transactions within or across business entities. Nearly 80 percent of all Fortune 500 companies have been doing their core business through the Internet. Many issues, such as the impact of electronic commerce on the efficiency of the economy and market structure, and societal implications of electronic commerce, are the subject of recent research.

A supply chain consists of all of the entities and activities that enable the production, distribution, and delivery of products and services to consumers. Research in designing and managing supply chains has rapidly expanded during the last decade. In addition, increased and accessible computing power and modeling capabilities have spurred this growth, enabling researchers to simultaneously consider the many interrelated variables and decisions of a supply chain in a single tractable model.
The three themes of Financial Engineering, E-Commerce, and Supply Chain will pervade this conference. This meeting will provide a foundation for joint research cooperation, exchange of ideas among theoreticians and practitioners, and stimulation for future research. Publication of the conference proceedings is planned.
