With the massive increase in Government Debt and Central Bank balance sheets around the world, record low interest rates, fears of both inflation and deflation and persistently high unemployment, the prospect for financial volatility is of great interest. This conference will feature a panel on the "Volatility Outlook" and seek to present work recognizing the relation between economic fundamentals, long term volatility and risk. It will also feature new research on the measurement and forecasting of volatility in the short and long run for equities and other asset classes such as fixed income, options and CDS.
