ESA-announce Replication in Economic Experiments (Research In Experimental Economics, Volume 18) Deadline Approaching

Posted on 2014/06/26. Filed under: 綜合 |

Don’t forget, the July 1 deadline for submission to Research In Experimental Economics, Volume 18 onReplication in Economic Experiments is fast approaching. The original announcement is below.

Call for papers: Research In Experimental Economics, Volume 18

Replication in Economic Experiments

Volume editors: Cary Deck, University of Arkansas
Enrique Fatas, University of East Anglia
Tanya Rosenblat, University of Michigan

This edited book is scheduled as volume 18 of the series Research in Experimental Economics, Emerald Group Publishing and is to appear in 2015. The REE series ofedited research volumes was first published in 1979 with founding editor Vernon L. Smith. The current senior editors are R. Mark Isaac and Douglas A. Norton of Florida State University.

About the new volume

Replication is a fundamental part of scientific discovery. However, there appears to be a perception in the profession that replication is often marginalized in favor of new statistically significant results. Such behavior would lead to a biased understanding of the state of knowledge in the field. At the same time, many experimental results are replicated indirectly when researchers report variations of the original design that generate similar patterns. This volume is focused on the replication of findings in the literature for which replicability has not been established

As usual, REE papers will be externally reviewed. The review criteria will include the relative importance of the original finding, the extent of existing replication (both direct and indirect) already in the literature, and the faithfulness of the replication attempt. Publication decisions will not depend on the affirmation or contradiction of the original results and a rationale for replication failures is welcome but not required. Papers should include a methods section, with a detailed description of both the original experimental protocol and the one used in the replication.

Papers that include data that are not part of a replication are welcome so long as a primary focus of the paper is replication and the additional data contribute to understanding the research questions of the original study being replicated.

Multiple replication attempts from researchers working independently are especially welcome.

Submission procedure

Interested authors are encouraged to contact the volume editors as soon as possible. For full consideration, completed manuscripts must be received by July 1, 2014. Space for inclusion in this volume is limited.

Emails for submissions: replicationREE18

Call for Papers – Market Microstructure and Liquidity (Forthcoming Journal)

Posted on 2014/06/19. Filed under: 綜合 |

Market Microstructure and Liquidity has been created from the strong belief of the managing editors that a deep understanding of market microstructure requires academic and practitioner approaches to the topic to be brought together. This idea has been largely confirmed by the success of the biennial conference, “Market Microstructure, Confronting Many Viewpoints”, which was inaugurated in Paris in 2010.

The aim of the journal is to become the leading forum on market microstructure related issues (in a very broad sense): market design, regulation, high frequency trading, statistics of high frequency data, order books dynamics and liquidity effects at every time scale, intraday derivatives hedging and portfolio management.

One of the main goals of Market Microstructure and Liquidity is to bridge the gap between academia and industry on these topics. Hence, the editorial board of the journal consists of top academic researchers from at least five different communities (economics, financial mathematics, econometrics, statistics and econophysics), together with an industry advisory board, which consists of practitioners from some of the most important investment banks, hedge funds and exchanges, and regulators from international agencies. We believe the role of an industry advisory board is crucial in identifying the important and challenging research topics.

We encourage authors to submit their work on these topics to Market Microstructure and Liquidity. Papers can be theoretical, empirical, or both. Our goal is to provide them fair reviews without following any community standards.

To be accepted for publication, a paper should simply meet at least one of the two following criteria:

– Improve our knowledge on market microstructure significantly;

– Provide relevant and innovative new tools for market practitioners.

All submission should follow the publisher’s style and format. This information is available from the publisher website – http://www.worldscientific.com/page/mml/submission-guidelines.

We look forward to receiving submissions for Market Microstructure and Liquidity.

Managing Editors,

Frédéric Abergel

ESA-announce Grant competition to establish an experimental/behavioral center

Posted on 2014/06/05. Filed under: 綜合 |

The USDA Economic Research Service invites proposals for a competitive grant to establish and fund a USDA Center for Behavioral and Experimental Agri-Environmental Policy Research that will use behavioral and experimental economics to conduct research on how policies and programs can influence the provision of ecosystem services from agricultural lands.

The USDA Center will facilitate new and innovative research on the application of behavioral and experi­mental economics theory and practice to the provision of ecosystem services from the Nation’s agricultural lands. The USDA center will be expected to (1) establish an innova­tive behavioral and experimental economics research program related to the design and implementation of policies and programs that provide ecosystem services; (2) broaden the network of social scientists participating in policy-relevant behavioral and experi­mental economics research on agricultural ecosystem services, policies, and programs; and (3) disseminate information obtained via its research program to USDA and other Federal program agencies, along with other researchers and the general public. We anticipate that up to $750,000 will be available in fiscal year 2014 (ending September 30) to support this activity over the next 3 years. Additional funds may be awarded in subse­quent years, subject to availability of funds and the performance of the USDA Center.

The deadline for submission of applications is 11:59 p.m., July 7, 2014.

ESA-announce ECCS ’14 Computational Social Science: Social Contagion, Collective Behaviour, and Networks to be held in Lucca, Italy, 24-25 September 2014

Posted on 2014/06/05. Filed under: 綜合 |

CALL FOR ABSTRACT

ECCS ’14

Computational Social Science: Social Contagion, Collective Behaviour, and Networks

to be held in Lucca, Italy, 24-25 September 2014, a satellite workshop

within the ECCS’14 meeting (www.eccs14.eu)

Website: http://cssworkshop.oii.ox.ac.uk/

Important Dates:

Abstract submission deadline 22 June 2014

Conference date 24-25 September 2013

Event Overview

Technology-mediated social collectives are taking an important role in the design of social structures. Yet our understanding of the complex mechanisms governing networks and collective behaviour is still deplorably shallow. Fundamental concepts of on- and off-line networks such as power, authority, leader-follower dynamics, consensus emergence, information sharing, conflict, and collaboration are still not well defined and investigated. These are all crucial to illuminate the advantages and pitfalls of collective decision-making, which can cancel out individual mistakes, but also spiral out of control.

In recent endeavours, data from Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Wikipedia, and weblogs have been shown to strongly correlate to, and even predict, elections, opinions, attitudes, movie revenues, and oscillations in the stock market, to cite few examples. Similar data provided insights into the mechanisms driving the formation of groups of interests, topical communities, and the evolution of social networks. They also have been used to study polarization phenomena in politics, diffusion of information, and the dynamics of collective attention. However, a deeper understanding of these phenomena is still very much on demand. In parallel, and even preceding the surge in interest towards social media, the area of agent-based modeling (ABM) has grown in scope, focus and capability to produce testable hypotheses, going beyond the original goal of explaining macroscopic behaviors from simple interaction rules among stylized agents.

The aim of this satellite is to address the question of ICT-mediated social phenomena emerging over multiple scales, ranging from the interactions of individuals to the emergence of self-organized global movements. We would like to gather researchers from different disciplines and methodological backgrounds to form a forum to discuss ideas, research questions, recent results, and future challenges in this emerging area of research and public interest.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

  • Interdependent social contagion process

  • Peer production and mass collaboration

  • Temporally evolving networks and dynamics of social contagion

  • Cognitive aspects of belief formation and revision

  • Online communication and information diffusion

  • Viral propagation in online social network

  • Crowd-sourcing; herding behaviour vs. wisdom of crowds

  • E-democracy and online government-citizen interaction

  • Online socio-political mobilizations

  • Public attention and popularity

  • Temporal and geographical patterns of information diffusion

  • User-information interplay

  • Group formation, evolution and group behavior analysis.

  • Modeling, tracking and forecasting dynamic groups in social media.

  • Community detection and dynamic community structure analysis.

  • Social simulation, cultural, opinion, and normative dynamics.

  • Empirical calibration and validation of agent-based social models.

  • Models of social capital, collective action, social movements.

  • Coevolution of network and behavior.

Questions about the conference scope should be directed to the program co-chairs at css2014

Submission Instructions

Submissions will be made by sending one A4 page abstract in pdf via Easychair.

The deadline for abstract submission is 22 June 2014.

The contributions to the event will be evaluated by the programme committee through a peer review process that will account for the scientific quality as well as for the relevance of the contribution to the aims of the satellite.

The authors of accepted abstracts will be notified via e-mail by end of July 2014.
