Foundations workshop comes to an end

As pointed out in a tangential comment by Rene Carmona, the organizers of the workshop reserved the last day exclusively for talks by young researchers - representatives of the next generation advancing the foundations of our subject.

At the very end of meeting, in a remark following Miklós Rásonyi's talk, Hans Follmer closed the workshop the way he had started it, by reminding us that the problems addressed by mathematical finance - bubbles included - are very much part of the real world, and that we have our work cut out for us before we can claim to have a robust understanding of financial markets.

I would like to thank all organizers, speakers and participants for a truly stimulating workshop. It was the best start I could have wished for the six months ahead of us.
