  • Neural networks
  • Genetic algorithms
  • Cellular automata
  • Fuzzy logic
  • Agent-based modelling
  • Complex systems simulation
  • Intelligent agents
  • Evolutionary and behavioural game theory
  • Structural analysis of Social Networks
  • Data analysis: multi-dimensional, typological, data mining ...

Topics of interest include:

  • Models of individual and collective decision making processes
  • Models of individual and collective learning processes
  • Models of opinion formation and opinion spreading
  • Forecasting: financial time series, bankruptcy, contagion
  • Risk management
  • Spatial Dynamics and territorial networks and systems, multi-scaling methods, urban networks, mobility, urban dynamics, geo-marketing, geographical economics
  • Micro structural market analysis
  • Generic social processes (solidarity, control, regulation, etc.)
  • Networks and interactions

Both theoretical and applied papers are welcome.

Submissions by junior researchers are particularly encouraged.
The participants will have the opportunity to submit their work to a fully refereed publication.
