The new area of statistics dealing with high-frequency data enjoys a rapid development. Techniques from traditional statistics in general, even from data mining in particular, are not capable to cope with the vast amount of information that comes out of tic-by-tic or intraday financial data. The number of incoming data is enormous; moreover this inflow is not a one-time event but repeats itself at high speed. Of course, not all incoming information is equally useful. High-frequency statistics needs to find sound indicators to single out what information is relevant and how it needs to be incorporated in further decision making and risk management. As asset trading is currently done via high-speed computer programs, it becomes a genuine challenge for the statistician to single out what incoming information needs to be taken into account and what part can be safely neglected. Often this information can be crystallized into specific measures that again require an appropriate kind of statistical treatment.
While a lot of scientific activity emerges from stochastic finance, there are other areas that cope with similar issues. We mention computational biology, fast on-line computation and simulation, network management as a few prominent examples.
This workshop is planned to stimulate further research in stochastic and statistical thinking when dealing with high-frequency data,. The idea of the workshop is to provide a platform where experts both from academia and from practice can meet, discuss and exchange ideas and expertise. Each speaker is expected to give a 40 minutes lecture with additional discussion. A part of the workshop will be reserved for a Round Table Discussion. If there is sufficient interest then we might second the lectures by poster sessions for the other participants.
The main themes of the workshop are the following:
1. Description and modelling of high-frequency data
2. Risk measures for high-frequency data
3. Risk management for high-frequency data
4. Computational and statistical aspects
5. Multivariate high-frequency data
