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
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
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
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.
