18th Annual Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents
June 20-22, 2013
Reykjavik University, Iceland
Twitter hashtag: #wehia2013
AIMS AND SCOPE:
The 18th Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA 2013)
offers an opportunity to present the latest research on various aspects of the economy
as a complex system made up of multiple heterogeneous interacting agents.
Research from different domains, at the crossing of various disciplines – economics, psychology,
sociology, computer sciences, engineering, physics – are useful for developing more satisfactory
approaches to (macro) econometrics and (macro) economic theory.
These approaches have already brought some improvement in the understanding of problems facing
the world economy, such as the financial crisis, segregation, unemployment and poverty, and the
need for sustainable development.
The workshop aims to make progress in understanding and solving them.
