Annual Meeting in Innsbruck, Austria

The Symposium is devoted to recent scientific advances in the field of Agent-Based Computational Economics, but it is also opened to methodological surveys.
The main aims of the event are:

  • To facilitate the meeting of people and ideas from the communities of social sciences (mainly economics, finance, and management) and computer science, to build a structured multi-disciplinary approach.
  • To present agent-based computational methodologies and tools with application to social sciences.
  • To present uses, needs, and constraints of agent-based models employed by social scientists to computer scientists.

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Market Dynamics
  • Agent-Based Macroeconomics
  • Discrete Choice Models in Economics and Management Sciences
  • Emergence and Dynamics of Norms and Conventions
  • Financial Market and Organization Models (Stock Price Dynamics, Herding in Financial Markets)
  • Epistemology and Agent-Based Methodological Issues
  • Dynamics of Social and Economic Networks
  • Complexity and Markets

 As for the three previous events (Lille, Aalborg and Palermo), the proceedings of the Symposium will be published in the Springer's Series volume Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems.
