CIFEr, Computational Intelligence for Financial Engineering and Economics is the major collaboration between the professional engineering and financial communities, and is one of the leading forums for new technologies and applications at the intersection of computational intelligence and financial engineering and economics.

CIFEr has been a means of exploration for academics and financial professionals. The subprime/liquidity crisis and flash crashes have had a global effect, program and algorithmic trading continue growing, regulatory and compliance developments and risk management requirements present new challenges.
