Thematic series on Physics-based Agent Models in Socio-Economic Dynamics

Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling welcomes submissions to the new thematic series on Physics-based Agent Models in Socio-Economic Dynamics

This special series originates from the workshop "SEDPAM - Socio-Economic Dynamics: Physics-based Agent Models" co-located at the European Conference on Complex Systems (ECCS) which was held in September 2014 at IMT Institute for Advanced Studies in Lucca (Italy); the Scientific Committee is composed by professors and researchers working in the field of Complex Systems. The satellite itself is intended to gather scholars coming from different areas, as witnessed by the presence of two invited speakers, working in the field of macro-economics and social sciences. Particular attention will be devoted to those papers whose authors have different backgrounds, in order to favor interdisciplinary collaborations between physicists, computer scientists, economists and social scientists (whose specific knowledge can complement the modeling attitude of the former), and moreover, presenting strongly data-driven researches, in order to develop models describing realistic systems.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Dynamics on social and economic systems
  • Emergent phenomena in social and economic systems
  • Multi-level socio-economic complex systems
  • Big-data analysis of socio-economic systems

Lead guest editor: Serge Galam, CEVIPOF, CNRS

Guest editors: Marco Alberto Javarone, University of Sassari/University of Cagliari and Tiziano Squartini, Sapienza University

Submissions will also benefit from the usual benefits of open access publication:

  • Rapid publication: Online submission, electronic peer review and production make the process of publishing your article simple and efficient
  • High visibility and international readership in your field: Open access publication ensures high visibility and maximum exposure for your work - anyone with online access can read your article
  • No space constraints: Publishing online means unlimited space for figures, extensive data and video footage
  • Authors retain copyright, licensing the article under a Creative Commons license: articles can be freely redistributed and reused as long as the article is correctly attributed
