not really for the pure quant, somethimes they touch mathematics but hardly in a very technical way. more for people in risk management

I must say I have always been very disappointed after "quantitative" conferences: only 1% of what they present has added value (this is of course my personal point of view!).I have learned much much more out of books, my 2 favourites are:- Quantitative Risk Management (Embrechts, McNeil, Frey)- Paul Wilmott on quantitative finance (3 volumes)
