Econophysics Colloquium 2008

The annual colloquium, now in its fourth consecutive year, provides a platform for the presentation of interdisciplinary ideas from different communities, for instance economics and finance, physics, mathematics, biology, computer science, engineering, etc.

The conference's main aim is to foster an open-minded, cross-fertilizing, and regular
exchange of ideas among scholars and practitioners of the different fields in a friendly environment.

- Statistical and probabilistic methods in economics and finance
- Multi-scaling analysis and modeling
- Complex socio-economic networks
- Agent-based models in economics and finance
- Evolutionary economics
- Information, bounded rationality, and learning
