CIFEr 2024 will take place at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. Stevens is named for the distinguished family known as "America's First Family of Inventors." Founded in 1870, it is one of the oldest technological universities in the United States and was the first college in America solely dedicated to mechanical engineering. The 55-acre campus encompasses Castle Point, the highest point in Hoboken, a campus green and 43 academic, student and administrative buildings. 

Since 1995, the IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence for Financial Engineering and Economics (CIFEr) has been a leading forum for research and applications of Computational Intelligence in Business, Finance and Economics. The financial services industry is presently undergoing considerable change due to the development of new technologically focused products and services. The understanding of these innovations requires multidisciplinary approaches from the perspective of industry, societal and government policies. The upcoming CIFEr 2024 will be co-hosted by the Center for Research toward Advancing Financial Technologies (CRAFT) funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation in the New York Metropolitan area. 

The event brings together a global community of researchers and practitioners with a particular emphasis on fostering cross disciplinary collaboration. Technical exchanges will encompass keynote talks, research presentations and tutorials. Networking will be facilitated by social functions and activities at the venue.
