The credit crisis has had a significant impact on the financial markets as well as the global economy. At this meeting, we will hear from two prominent presenters their insights and experiences on this topic.This event will build on the discussion began at the Spring 2008 meeting examining the market crisis and the resulting credit crunch.

Quantitative Finance is part of a new initiative launched in physical sciences and engineering. Given the Academy's new location at 7 World Trade Center and the number of scientists who work in finance, the goal of this symposium is to build community by creating collaborations and developing professional networks between the science and finance communities. Reception to follow.
