Dear Colleagues

I am happy to inform you about a new journal entitled 'Journal of Network
Theory in Finance' published by Risk Journals.

At the same time I'd like to draw your attention to its inaugural
conference 'Financial Risk and Network Theory
to be held on 23 September 2014 together with the Center for Risk Studies
at Cambridge University, UK.

Please see the details below and feel free to forward this information
within your networks.


Financial institutions and markets are highly interconnected, but
literature that maps these interconnections and assesses their impact on
financial risks and returns has only recently begun to emerge. The
conference inaugurates the new Journal of Network Theory in Finance and
aims to spark interest and feed new collaborations in this emerging
multidisciplinary field.

The Journal of Network Theory in Finance (JNTF) is an interdisciplinary
journal publishing academically rigorous and practitioner-focused research
on the application of network theory in finance and related fields,
bringing together research carried out in disparate areas within academia
and other research institutions by policymakers and industry practitioners.

*Conference date*: 23 September, 2014
*Conference location*: Center for Risk Studies, Cambridge University,
Cambridge, UK

Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and applied papers on
their research in financial networks. Selected papers presented at the
conference will be published in forthcoming editions of the journal. Topics
include, but are not limited to the research areas below.

- Empirical network analysis that enables better understanding of financial
flows, exposures and markets
- Modeling and simulation techniques for measuring interdependent financial
- New metrics and techniques for identifying central, vulnerable or
systemically important institutions and markets in financial networks
- Network modeling of time-series data for financial risk management, asset
allocation and portfolio management
- Social network analysis (SNA) in finance, e.g. for making credit and
investment decisions
- Applied network visualization techniques that improve the communication
of financial risks and rewards
