Overview

The Great Recession of 2008 and the continuing reverberations in the Eurozone have highlighted 
significant limitations in the ability of regulators and analysts/researchers to monitor and 
model the national and global financial ecosystem. This includes the lack of financial 
cyberinfrastructure to ingest and process numerous streams of financial transactions, as well as 
the accompanying data streams of economic activity, in real time. Also absent are open standards
and shared semantics so that this data can be used to populate models of individual markets, 
financial networks and the interconnected ecosystem representing the global financial system. 
The most important challenge is the need to develop computational research frameworks, models 
and methods, in the spirit of past efforts to identify computational grand challenges in a diversity 
of data intensive domains including the biomedical sciences, health information management, 
climate change, etc. The next generation of financial cyberinfrastructure must provide a platform 
that can transform our current approaches to monitoring and regulating systemic risk. 

Organized under the auspices of the University of Maryland's Center for Financial Policy, 
the goal of this workshop (and related activities) is to work closely with federal regulatory 
agencies, academic research communities in computer science, finance, economics and 
other related disciplines, the financial industry and the computing industry. 
The broader impact will include the following:  
* A blueprint for the next generation financial cyberinfrastructure. 
* A computational research framework with models and methods that are needed to transform 
  the monitoring and regulation of systemic risk.
* Best practices for the software industry and a robust regulatory framework.
* Multi-disciplinary Ph.D. level curriculum and doctoral dissertation challenges.
