Last Call! YSI @NetSciX2020 – Tokyo

YSI Workshop on Economic Networks

The Complexity Economics, East Asia and Urban and Regional Economics Working Groups invite highly motivated Young Scholars to submit an abstract for the full-day workshop on Economic and Financial Networks that takes place on January 23rd, 2020 in Tokyo, Japan.

Associated with NetSci-X 2020 in Tokyo, Japan this special workshop will benefit from both the rich interdisciplinary community in Network Science and from Japan's status as a nexus for research in economic and financial networks. The workshop aims to bring together researchers active in this area from across disciplines and areas of the world to discuss state-of-the-art work, share practical knowledge, and create opportunities for novel and fruitful collaborations.

Attendant to this aim is to inspire and encourage a new generation of researchers in economic and financial networks. To this end, this workshop is partnering with the Young Scholars Initiative of the Institute for New Economic Thinking to support the participation of highly motivated Young Scholars in related disciplines. Such participants will gain insights in network science and its application to economics as well as valuable feedback on presentations and posters by experienced mentors and peers.

The YSI will offer a number of travel stipends to young scholars that submit an abstract to this workshop. YSI will cover also accommodation in shared hotel rooms from January 22nd to 24th to all selected participants who are not based in Tokyo.
