Conference Session for Young Scholars at WEHIA 2024

We are delighted to announce the call for papers for the YSI Conference Session to be held alongside the Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA) 2024 in Bamberg. WEHIA 2024 offers an exceptional platform for the exchange of cutting-edge research in agent-based modeling and related fields.


About WEHIA 2024:

The Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA) is the annual conference of the Society for Economic Studies with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents. WEHIA 2024 represents a unique opportunity to present and discuss the latest research on various aspects of agent-based modeling, such as the use of behavioral heuristics, complex networks, micro-level interaction and macro-level patterns, and estimation and calibration of agent-based models. Research from different domains – economics, psychology, sociology, environment, computer sciences, engineering, physics, and the interdisciplinary domains of artificial intelligence – can prove useful in developing new insightful approaches to key issues such as the origin, development, and mitigation of economic growth, financial volatility, digital currencies, climate change, income and wealth distribution, to the issues such as the evolution of culture, the spread of information, the emergence of violence, and many more.

As part of the conference two PhD courses will be held: one will be given by Roberta Terranova, taking place on July 8th, and the other one by Maria del Rio Chanona, taking place on July 11th-12th. Participation is free: if you like to participate in one or both of the courses, please send an email to [email protected]  (more information here).


About the Conference Session for Young Scholars:

The call is aimed at graduate students and early-career researchers with a focus on agent-based modeling or related areas. Chaired by Prof. Christian R. Proaño, it will offer invaluable feedback and insights to enhance the quality and impact of participants’ research. This is a rare chance for emerging scholars to showcase their contributions to the interdisciplinary field of agent-based modeling and engage with esteemed experts in the field.

Selected young scholars will have the exclusive opportunity to present their work at a fully-dedicated session for young scholars at WEHIA (that will take place on 9th-11th of July), and will be granted by YSI a partial travel stipend and accomodation for the whole duration of the conference.

The proposed paper should align with the themes and topics covered by the 27th Annual Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (see here).

Kindly be informed that YSI is unable to cover the attendance fee for WEHIA. Students interested in participating are responsible for covering the fee independently. However, the organizing committee is pleased to offer students from the global south a discounted fee of €200.
