          Conference Introduction       


 

The expanding range of global competition, coupled with the growing volumes of complex data in companies after having spent the last decade implementing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), have forced businesses and academics alike to turn to sophisticated technologies for solutions. Business intelligence plays ever-increasingly important roles in companies to obtain the competitive advantages. The marriage between the cutting-edge business intelligence technology and traditional topics of finance and economics has resulted in the field of financial engineering. Accordingly, financial engineering as a cross-disciplinary field relies on mathematical finance, intelligent methods and computer simulations to make trading, hedging and investment decisions, as well as facilitating the risk management of those decisions, and thus strengthening the competitive capability of companies. To promote the theoretical development and exchange of Business Intelligence and Financial Engineering, the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh International Conference on Business Intelligence and Financial Engineering (BIFE 2008, BIFE 2009, BIFE 2010, BIFE 2011,  BIFE 2012, BIFE 2013 and BIFE 2014) were held at Changsha University of Science & Technology, Changsha on October 28-30, 2008; Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing on July 24-26, 2009; City University of Hong Kong on August 13-15, 2010; Huazhong Normal University, Wuhan on October 17-18, 2011; and Lanzhou University, Lanzhou on August 18-21, 2012; and Zhejiang University of Economics and Finance, Hangzhou on November 14-16, 2013; and Shaanxi Normal University, Xi'An on August 8-10, 2014. After 2014, the BIFE conference becomes a biennial event, there is no conference event in 2015.
