Open Source Risk User Meeting 2018

Quaternion sponsors an Open Source Risk User Meeting in Frankfurt on Friday 23rd November 2018 at Fleming’s Hotel, Frankfurt City, Eschenheimer Tor 2.

“The Open Source Risk Project’s objective is to provide a free/open source platform for risk analytics and XVA. ORE is based on QuantLib and grew from work developed by market professionals and academics.” (

With this first meeting we want to provide a communication platform for the ORE users in the industry and ORE’s developers, contributors and creators, to help propagating ORE’s usage and its further development.

The agenda will cover short presentations of use cases and leave sufficient room for discussing the future of ORE’s usage.

Attending the conference will be free of charge, but the number of seats is limited. If you want to join, please register on the bottom of the agenda.

The following is an indicative agenda. If you would like to share your experience with ORE, please let us know with your registration. We would be happy to rearrange the agenda.
