Systemic risk has long been identified as a potential for financial institutions to trigger a dangerous contagion mechanism from the financial economy to the real economy itself. This type of risk, long confined to the monetary market, has spread widely in the recent past, culminating in the subprime crisis of 2008. The understanding and control of systemic risk has therefore become an extremely important societal and economic question. The Econophys-Kolkata VI conference is dedicated to address some of these issues.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in New Economic Windows, Springer-Verlag, Milan.
