Recognized practitioners, regulators, experts, and strategists will return to High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 to provide attendees with the information they are looking for in an open and unbiased environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.

Topics that will be discussed at High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 ( include the movement toward emerging markets, every time more attuned to the use of bots, the regulatory environment, how new technologies are changing the game, including a look at the upcoming regulatory changes that no doubt will be precipitated by Knight Capital’s trading glitch:

- Low Latency: How to achieve Ultra-Low Latency for High-Frequency Trading? As high-frequency trading moves towards multi-asset classes running multi-legged strategies demanding even faster execution, ultra-low latency performance becomes the focus. How will architectures evolve to meet the latency challenge? How helpful overclocking CPUs and leveraging FPGA coprocessors can result? How will wireless, cloud and big data technologies play in the speed race? How technology can enable modern applications to minimize latency while managing for high throughput?

- Emerging Markets: How will Emerging Markets from Brazil to China Affect the Scope of High-frequency Trading? With emerging markets on the rise, high frequency trading and algorithmic trading are shifting to geographies in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Which markets hold the most promise? Which asset classes can be traded in high-frequency in those markets? Are there restrictions to frequency and speed in place in any of those promising lands? What is the outlook for high-frequency trading among regulators in those markets?

- Robotic Markets: As High-frequency Trading Embraces Robotic Markets Worldwide, how Participants will be Able to Find new Opportunities to Sustain Alpha Creation? Algorithms are becoming more prevalent, faster, smarter, more self-adaptive and geographically distributed and embracing cross asset classes trading and geographies. How will robotic market impact trading, and high-frequency trading in particular? What will be the benefits quants can expect from this evolution? Will there be any disadvantages? New alpha versus alpha retention?

- Regulatory Impact: With High-frequency Trading in the Spotlight, how new Regulations will Change the Industry? With high-frequency trading the subject of great controversy and debate, many regulations will be bound to change. How will regulations impact the way traders are capturing alpha? Would there be restrictions that can possibly harm algorithmic trading? How the economic and political landscape might impact the pace and severity of these changes?

- The Future of HFT: How High-frequency Trading will Evolve in Ever-changing Technology and Regulatory Environments? There has been a dramatic shift in how instruments are traded in the market. With high frequency trading able to detect price discrepancies in microseconds, aided by technology, regulators have grown increasingly concerned about its impact in market structure and fairness. What is the outlook for the markets when all participants engage in the arms race of super smart algorithms? Where will institutional and retail investors find opportunities? Conversely, could we imagine a world without high-frequency trading?
