On January, 18th, 2011, a number of QuantLib “fans” gathered at the Marriot Hotel in Canary Wharf, London, UK, to celebrate the first QuantLib forum. The forum was sposored by StatPro and you can find the official brochure in the attachments below.
I personally believe the event was a great success and we had great feedback (anyway if you were at he event and would like to comment to me please drop me a line). I met many people that were interested in QuantLib for many different reasons: beginners, people interested in pricing only, people interested in risk management only, users of the QuantLibXL add-in, people interested in the C++, and so on and so forth.
Many people at the conferences liked my presentation and wrote to me, in private, to ask for the spreadsheet used to compute the historical simulation of bond prices. You can find both of the in the attachments below.
