The conference studies the operations and workings of modern financial markets and their interactions with, and needs for, financial regulations.
Topics include the market microstructure (including algorithmic and high-frequency trading in fast markets), the effects of this microstructure on liquidity, efficiency and stability and the real-world effects and implementations of financial regulations, including regtech. We aim to achieve this by bringing together practitioners, regulators and academic researchers and create a fertile environment for discussion.
