Since the first theoretical results for backward stochastic differential equations in the early 90s, this theory has continued to grow due to its applications in the fields of partial differential equations, stochastic geometry, finance and of stochastic control. The conference will provide an opportunity to take stock of recent developments and to consider new perspectives in this field.
