Seminar Papers

All papers submitted for presentation at London Quant events are subject to approval by the London Quant Management Committee.

The purpose of Seminar papers is to benefit attendees by presenting quantitative investment research that has practical value. Papers with an obvious sales orientation will not usually be approved.

Sponsorships

London Quant welcomes sponsors to all its events.

Sponsors are acknowledged in the Events page of the London Quant website and verbal acknowledgement during the event. Sponsors also are entitled to one delegate, excluding accommodation charges.

Punting Disclaimers

  • Participation in the punting event held at the Autumn Seminar is of the free will and at risk of the participant.
  • Participants accept implicitly and explicitly that London Quant Ltd, any sponsoring organisations and the Seminar organisers take no responsibility for any mishaps or consequences of those mishaps.
  • There is no insurance cover for personal accident. Any accident during punting is not insured through London Quant Ltd or sponsoring organisations, the Seminar organiser or associated companies.
  • Participants undertake that they, or anybody acting on their behalf (including relatives and/or beneficiaries), will not make, or attempt to make any claim against London Quant Ltd or sponsoring organisations, the Seminar organiser or associated companies should any mishap occur.
  • Similarly, there is no insurance cover for participants’ personal effects. London Quant Ltd or sponsoring organisations, the Seminar organiser or associated companies can take no responsibility for any loss or damage to them.

This disclaimer will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law, and any disputes relating to this disclaimer will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

Partial Attendance at Events

There is no discount for partial attendance at our events as partial attendance would deny a place to a full participant. As numbers are strictly limited at our events, we believe that full attendance is important to the overall quality of the event for all participants.

Speakers’ Expenses

London Quant is a not-for-profit organisation. Speakers’ expenses are not normally reimbursed.
