This session on the future of computing languages brings together leading developers of Gauss, Mathematica, MATLAB, Ox, and S-Plus, who will discuss recent and upcoming product developments that will affect the utility of their languages in economic and financial analysis. A question-and-answer session will allow audience members to voice concerns and suggest improvements in language structures, and to inform product developers about the computational needs of economists and finance professionals.
