Call for Papers in pdf-format


We invite you to submit a paper to the 5th International Conference in Artificial Economics, taking place in Valladolid (Spain), September 10-11th, 2009.


This two-day event will offer presentations of papers selected by the program committee after a blindly double review, as well as keynote sessions by invited speakers, that are experts in Artificial Intelligence and Economics. Exchanges and discussions will have a large space in the final program. 


Aims and Scope

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 aim of the event is to favor the meeting of people and ideas from both, the Computer Science community and the Economics and Finance community, in order to be able to construct a much structured multi-disciplinary approach to the complexity of Economics.


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


Agent-Based microfoundations of macroeconomic activity.

Discrete Choice Agent-Based Models in Economics and Management Sciences.

Emergence and Dynamics of Norms and Conventions.

Dynamics of Social and Economic Networks in Agent-Based Models.

Financial Market and Organization Agent-Based Models.

Complexity and Market Dynamics from an agent-based approach.

The feedback between Game theory, Experimental Economics and Artificial Economics.

Epistemology and Agent-Based Methodological Issues.



Important Dates

Submission short paper: February 23rd, 2009.

Notification of acceptance: April 6th, 2009.

Submission final paper: May 16th, 2009.



The proceedings of the Symposium will be published in the Springer's Series volume Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems as for the four previous Artificial Economics conferences (Lille, Aalborg, Palermo, and Innsbruck).

After the event we plan to publish in a special issue of a Journal with JCR impact factor, the extended and revised versions of some selected papers modified after the remarks and discussions that will take place during the Conference.
